[SPOILER ALERT]: Potential plot lines in the movie are briefly discussed

The Transformers franchise is making a return with its seventh installation of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts this 2023

Directed by Steven Caple Jr, this movie is bringing the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons to life. Starring Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will debut in cinemas on 9 June 2023.

This time around, the Transformers franchise will be a tribute and an upgrade to the 1990s cartoon Beast Wars, which told the tale of a group of robots that took the form of organic animals, called Maximals, who fight against the Predacons.

Caple said, "There are different breeds of Transformers. In our particular film, they are prehistoric animals who travel through time and space, and we find them here on Earth," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Set in 1994, the story follows an ex-military gearhead Noah, played by Anthony Ramos, and museum researcher Elena, played by Dominique Fishback

Anthony Ramos will be one of the protagonists, Noah, a military gearhead who finds himself in Mirage, an Autobot.

Noah and Elena find themselves entangled within a conflict between the Autobots and the Decepticons, without knowing of their existence disguised as seemingly ordinary human vehicles. 

As of now, it is unclear what the actual storyline will entail, but it's understood that it will have the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons taking part in the existing fight between the Autobots and Decepticons. Fan-favourites Cheetor and Rhinox will also be debuting in the first ever live-action movie, with high-tech designs and CGI.

The cast for this movie will include more renowned names, like Michelle Yeoh who will be playing Airazor, a winged Maximal, as well as Peter Cullen who is the original actor playing Optimus Prime.
