“Transformers: Rise of the Beasts” Official Trailer Roars New Life Into Franchise

The official trailer for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is here, revealing the franchise’s chest-thumping new direction as a whole new host of metallic alien colossi stomp into view. The new trailer offers a longer, more detailed look at the seventh installment of the Transformers franchise, which is set in 1994 and is inspired by the ’90s Beast Wars cartoon. As we learned when the previous trailer droppedRise of the Beasts will roam from the streets of Brooklyn to Machu Picchu, Peru. Starring Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback, with new transformers voiced by none other than Michelle Yeoh (!!) and Pete Davidson, Rise of the Beasts introduces the Maximals and Predacons, the titular beasts. The film will explore not only these new factions in the larger war between the Autobots and Decepticons but also the origins of the Autobots’ connection to Earth. Rise of the Beasts also includes the introduction of the Terrorcons, a sub-group of the Decepticons that transform into metallic monsters.

Director Steven Caple Jr steers the new film, and for those of you who aren’t scholars of Michael Bay’s previous Transformers story, we’ve got good news; Rise of the Beasts is set before any of them, so you don’t need to know the history of these warring metal aliens to enjoy the spectacle.

The cast also includes Peter Cullen, returning as Optimus Prime, Tobe Nwigwe, Ron Perlman, Peter Dinklage, Liza Koshy, John DiMaggio, David Sobolov, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, and Cristo Fernández.

Check out the official trailer below. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts roars into theaters on June 9, 2023.
