Fans of the Beast Wars may find the plot a little off-tangent, but everyone knows that this is not a straight adaptation but, rather, bringing some of the characters from the franchise into the fold. Viewers would rejoice to see the big-screen versions of Optimus Primal and Cheetor alongside new villains and friends.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is the first installment of the planned trilogy that follows 2018’s Bumblebee. The said film is known for its classic 90s vibe, and the upcoming movie will follow suit. Inspired by the 1996’s Beast Wars television show, Rise of the Beasts will introduce two races of Transformers: the Maximals and the Terrorcons.

The trailer immersed the viewers into the heart of the action as they watch a gigantic gorilla jump from one place to another like a mechanical variant of King Kong. This scene is crucial to the story as it provides fans the necessary introduction of Optimus Primal, the leader of the Maximals, a faction of the Transformers that descended from the Autobots.


In the trailer, Optimus Primal (voiced by Ron Perlman) warns Optimus Prime of the danger coming from both the past and future. One of the unique elements portrayed by the Maximals is their way of camouflaging themselves as animals. This destined meeting between two powerful alien beings brings excitement and anticipation for the fans of the movie.

Optimus Prime is voiced by none other than Peter Cullen. The Autobot leader’s design follows that of the 90s classic reminiscent of the Bumblebee spin-off. This nostalgic approach to the designs of these colossal beasts deeply engaged fans and more likely wooed those who have lost interest to come back to the franchise.

Fans Amazed By The Classic Look Of The Transformers

Many have been raving about the accuracy of the designs, as shown in the trailer. Check out these reactions from fans:



Of course, it is not a Transformers movie if we don’t have humans intervening. Like Sam Witwicky (Shia Labeouf), Noah will serve as an ally of the Autobots. Played by Anthony Ramos, the lad would partner up with his new car Mirage (voiced by Pete Davidson).

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will roll out in theaters on June 9, 2023.
