Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Wraps Filming

No Comments

That’s a wrap! As has been revealed by director Steven Caple Jr. filming has been completed on Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. This is set to be the latest live-action installment in the franchise, and it will be taking the action to the 90s. Caple revealed the following on Instagram. Have a look. 



“That’s a wrap,” Caple said simply in his post. 


This post gives us a new look at Optimus Prime, who will be at the center of this story. This will be the first Transformers movie to hit theaters since Bumblebee in 2018. That movie was critically well-liked. It helped do away with the bad taste that Michael Bay left behind with Transformers: The Last Knight


This latest installment will also be bringing characters from the beloved Beast Wars spin-off into the mix. During a press event when the film was announced, producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura explained the dynamic as follows. 


“The Predacons are the natural enemy of the Maximals. In a sense, you have the natural enemies of the Predacons and the Beasts, and then you have the Terrorcons and the Autobots in opposition to one another. We get to pair everybody up against each other, so it becomes a grand finale and epic Transformers experience. In the past, we’ve focused on the Decepticons. There are Decepticons in this movie, but it’s really the Terrorcons that are the leading villains.”


The human cast is led by Anthony Ramos (In the Heights) and Dominique Fishback (Project Power). Darnell Metayer and Josh Peters penned the screenplay for the film. A previous draft had been penned by Joby Harold. This is just one of several movies in the works, including an animated Transformers feature. Josh Cooley (Toy Story 4) is attached to that. However, updates have been few and far between since it first came to light. 


Hasbro and Paramount first teamed for Transformers in 2007. The movie was a smash hit, grossing $708 million at the box office. A string of sequels followed, with the franchise earning more than $4.8 billion to date. Bay directed the first five entries. Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings) took over when it came time for Bumblebee. Bay remains a producer on the series. 


Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is set to hit theaters on June 4, 2022.
