Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Reveals New Autobots, Decepticons

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts has been in production for a while now, and star Anthony Ramos has released an official photo of both the Autobots and Decepticons, all in car form. 

With new looks for Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Mirage, Arcee, and Wheeljack, as well as Scourge, Nightbird, and another vehicle. Among the bots is filmmaker Steven Caple Jr., who appears to be enjoying the time of his life. 

However, none of the Maximals or Predacons, the animal Transformers who will make their live-action debut in the film, are depicted. Take a look at them below!

Steven Caple Jr. said:

“We wanted to give the audience a lot of new (elements),” producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura previously said about the movie’s characters. “We have exhausted I would say the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons. How do we find a new set of villains and priorities, saving the world is left to the Autobots and in this case the Maximals. Part of the new news, if you’ve seen the other movies, you’re going to see villains you’ve never seen before and a lot of elements we’ve never done before.”

He went on to say:

“We wanted to expand the universe, you have the Autobots and the Decepticons, and I would say my new flair to this is the Terracons. The Terracons are a new threat to Optimus Prime, and it’s something I pride myself on when entering the franchise. I’ve done Rocky with Creed, and you bring the nostalgia that fans want, but also bring something they aren’t expecting, and the Terracons are that.”
