Autobots, roll out! The next installment of Paramount’s Transformers film series is on the way, as Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is set to hit theaters next summer.

based primarily on the franchise’s Beast Wars storyline. The Transformers franchise has seen success at the box office, though that did not translate into critical success. Bumblebee was the first film in the series to receive an overall positive critical reaction, and so the studio is likely capitalizing on what worked there for this newest installment. It’s clear that Paramount is not backing away from this franchise anytime soon.

With that in mind, let’s look at everything we know about Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. Will any cast members from previous films return, and who will be joining them? What can we expect from the storyline? When and where can we see the movie when it is released? And what else should audiences know about Transformers: Rise of the Beasts?

As mentioned, Bumblebee was the best critically received film in the franchise. This was partly due to its setting in the 1980s, with critics lauding the nostalgic feel. Rise of the Beasts will be set in Brooklyn in 1994, likely attempting to recapture what worked in Bumblebee. The film will reportedly introduce characters from past animated series, such as the original 1984 series and the ‘90s Beast Wars show, to the film franchise. We can expect to see the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons all take part in the long-running battle between the Autobots and Decepticons. While the Decepticons will still play a role, it looks as though the Terrorcons will be the new primary villains.

During an event to promote the film, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura was quoted as saying:

Fans can rest assured that the classic Autobots will be back despite the new villains. Optimus Prime and Bumblebee return, the latter of which appearing as an off-road Chevrolet Camaro for the first time. Arcee, who first appeared in the film Bumblebee, will reportedly play a larger role here.
