Transformers 7 is now in production and it is titled – Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. You know what that means, it’s Beast Wars time. At a virtual Paramount event on Tuesday, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts director Steven Capel Jr. (Creed II) and stars Anthony Ramos (In the Heights) and Dominic Fischbach (The Deuce) offered up details on the next prequel in the giant robot franchise. of. . Set in 1994, Between Bumble-beeMichael Bay’s late ’80s and early ’00s films, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Maximals, will introduce Predacons and Terrorcons – the last of them being the film’s main villains – from the line of Beast War cartoons and Transformers toys.
Unlike the Autobots, who disguise themselves as an assortment of cars and vehicles, the Maxims—the new good guys—take on all kinds of creatures, be it mammals, birds or fish. Capel Jr. provided more clues as he said: “In our film, they are these prehistoric animals that travel through time and space, and we find them here on Earth.” Predacons are their natural enemies, choosing to become reptiles, amphibians, or invertebrates. Capel Jr. said that this leaves out terrorists who are a “new threat to this universe”. “When terrorists enter the film, when they disrupt our film, you will feel it.” Crisis is their leader, whom the Autobots and Maximils will join forces to stop.

Speaking of the Autobots, Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen) is also around. In fact, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will serve as a sort of origin story, telling us how he became the leader that we know him from future Transformers entries. And yes, in a new off-road version of the Chevrolet Camaro, everyone’s favorite Bumblebee will be part of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. Paramount also showed off early designs for new transformers such as the Arazor, Arcee, Mirage, Nightbird, Optimus Primal and Rhinox – not publicly available.
Of course, there are also some human characters to give the audience a surrogate and a little emotional connect. Ramos plays Noah, a Brooklyn-based military vet who is wonderful with electronics, comes from a low-income household (he’s “always the hustle,” Ramos said), and a father figure to his younger brother. is like (as with heights). Ramos said: “It’s all about taking care of the people he loves. […] One thing I love about Noah is his persistence and his heart, and his willingness to never leave, despite all the crazy things life is throwing at him. “
For Fischbach, she plays an artifact researcher who is intelligent and works in a museum. Fischbach said: “She’s trying to get ahead in life but her boss keeps taking credit for the work she’s done, so she’s trying [move out] Yourself.” The character in Fishback’s Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is also from New York. The seventh Transformers film will run between New York and Machu Picchu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in the Andes Mountains and off the Amazon Basin in Peru I’m guessing that the Maximals/Predacons are either hiding there or living there before causing chaos globally.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is slated to release in theaters worldwide on June 24, 2022.
