Transformers Rise of the Beasts Trailer Includes Peter Dinklage John DiMaggio
The first teaser trailer for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts has debuted online, featuring Ron Perlman as the beastly Optimus Primal.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts just got its first teaser trailer.

The upcoming Transformers movie sees the war between Autobots and Decepticons rolling on while introducing the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons for the first time.

“For millions of years our world has transformed,” read the ominous title cards. “But something else has awakened.”

The trailer sees the return of legendary Transformer, Optimus Prime as well as fan-favorite, Bumblebee, who recently had its own spin-off film.

Speaking of which, it looks as though Rise of the Beasts is set in 1994, shortly after the events of the spin-off. In fact, the new film is said to be “a ‘90s globetrotting adventure with the Autobots and introduce a whole new breed of Transformer – the Maximals – to the existing battle on earth between Autobots and Decepticons.”

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts stars Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime alongside the legendary Ron Perlman as the gorilla-inspired Optimus Primal. Pete Davidson voices Mirage, with Liza Koshy as Arcee, Cristo Fernández as Wheeljack, and John DiMaggio as Stratosphere.

Additionally, we get a glimpse of the other Maximals, Airazor (Michelle Yeoh), Rhinox (David Sobolov), and Cheetor who will be facing off against a new enemy – the Predacons and Terrorcons.

There, you’ll find Peter Dinklage as Scourge, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez as Nightbird, and David Sobolov as Battletrap.
