Paramount will release Transformers: Rise of the Beasts in theaters on June 24, 2022. It’ll be the first new film in the franchise since Bumblebee, which was released back in December 2018.
In Transformers 7: Rise of the Beasts, it’s time for Optimus Prime to meet Optimus Primal! The next entry in the hugely successful Transformers film series is officially set, and it’s a direct sequel to 2018’s critically acclaimed Bumblebee.
Even more excitingly, it will will introduce the Terrorcons and the Maximals to the already-expansive Transformers film universe. The 1987-set Bumblebee was the sixth movie in the long-running Transformers film series and was both a prequel and soft reboot for the series, with Travis Knight directing (Hollywood power player Michael Bay directed all six previous Transformers movies).
Rise of the Beasts, helmed by Creed II director Steven Caple Jr., continues the story that began in Bumblebee, this time taking place in Brooklyn circa 1994. Of course, this being a big, action-packed blockbuster, things won’t stay in one place for too long.
