As per People magazine, the upcoming Transformers movie “Rise of the Beasts” will feature the voices of prominent actors such as Ron Perlman, Pete Davidson, and Michelle Yeoh. Given that the first Transformers film was released in 2007, it has been 15 years since its debut. In preparation for the new movie, here’s a brief summary of the previous Transformers films. “Rise of the Beasts” is set to release in theaters on June 9.
In “Rise of the Beasts,” the story will be set in the 1990s in Brooklyn and will follow Anthony Ramos’ character, Noah, as he’s thrown into the middle of a war between the Autobots and Decepticons. Dominique Fishback will play the role of Elena, who’s described as “a street-smart, driven, and brilliant researcher at the Natural History Museum.”
What’s exciting about this film is that it will introduce new factions of Transformers. We’ll see the Maximals, who can turn into robotic animals, as well as the Predacons and Terrorcons. This is a huge departure from the original Transformers films that focused on the Autobots and Decepticons. Director Steven Caple Jr. has stated that he wants to “diversify the Transformers’ universe.”
In addition to the new Transformers, “Rise of the Beasts” will also introduce some major Hollywood stars as the voices of the new characters. Ron Perlman, Pete Davidson, and Michelle Yeoh are just a few of the names attached to the project.
The film is currently in production, and fans are eagerly awaiting its release. With the addition of new Transformers factions and an all-star cast, “Rise of the Beasts” promises to be an exciting addition to the Transformers franchise.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is the latest addition to the Transformers franchise that follows a new set of human characters and Transformers factions, the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons, who can turn into robotic animals. Directed by Steven Caple Jr., the film is set to star Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback, with Ron Perlman, Pete Davidson, and Michelle Yeoh voicing the new Transformers.

In this article, we will recap the previous Transformers movies to help you prepare for the latest installment.
The first movie in the franchise follows the Autobots, who travels to Earth in search of the AllSpark, the source of all Cybertronian life, in hopes of using it to restore their planet before the Decepticons can use it for evil. They find the coordinates of the AllSpark’s location imprinted on Archibald Witwicky’s glasses, which are now in the hands of his great-great-grandson Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf), an average high-school student who gets involved in the Transformers’ civil war when he purchases his first car, a 1976 Chevrolet Camaro, that is secretly the Autobot Bumblebee in disguise.

In the sequel, Sam is now a college student who is trying to live a normal life. However, when he begins to see Cybertronian symbols everywhere he goes, he’s thrown into action once again when he becomes targeted by the Decepticons, who think the symbols in Sam’s mind will lead them to an Energon-producing Star Harvester that will help them raise an army.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)
After graduating college and moving in with his new girlfriend Carly Spencer (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), Sam gets caught up in another battle between the Transformers when the Decepticons wage war against the Autobots once again. This time, Optimus Prime plans to revive the Autobots’ old leader, Sentinel Prime, to help them win. Chaos ensues when Sentinel betrays the Autobots.
Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)
The events of Dark of the Moon have led humanity to believe that all Transformers are a threat, so they create a task force to hunt them all down. They partner up with a Cybertronian bounty hunter named Lockdown (who’s working for an alien race known as the Creators) in order to take down Optimus Prime, who goes into hiding with the rest of his team as a result. He’s later discovered by an inventor named Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) and his daughter Tessa (Nicola Peltz Beckham), who help the Autobots in their fight against Lockdown.
Transformers: The Last Knight (2017)
“Transformers: The Last Knight” is a science fiction action film released in 2017. It is the fifth installment in the “Transformers” film series and serves as a sequel to “Transformers: Age of Extinction” (2014).

Meanwhile, a group of humans led by inventor Cade Yeager and Oxford professor Viviane Wembly, along with the Autobots, are on a quest to find an ancient artifact that is said to have the power to save the world.
However, they soon find themselves in a battle against the Decepticons and their leader, Megatron, who have joined forces with a powerful sorceress named Quintessa. Together, they plan to destroy Earth and rebuild their home planet of Cybertron.
The movie features a cast including Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager, Anthony Hopkins as Sir Edmund Burton, Josh Duhamel as Colonel William Lennox, and Isabela Moner as Izabella.

There, he is discovered by Charlie Watson, a teenage girl who is dealing with her own personal struggles. Charlie repairs Bumblebee and forms a bond with him as she helps him evade the Decepticons, the enemy faction of the Transformers who are searching for Bumblebee on Earth.
The film received positive reviews for its characters, action scenes, and 1980s setting. Hailee Steinfeld stars as Charlie and the voice of Bumblebee is provided by Dylan O’Brien.
