Let’s get ready to go down memory lane with one of the most beloved and iconic series so far. Alongside Fast and Furious and Mission: Impossible, the Autobots hold a special place in a lot of children's and adults' hearts as well. 

Transformers debuted in 2007 starring Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf, who got into an unexpected intergalactic robot war between Autobots and Decepticons. Unlike the other series, here the actors changed every couple of movies. Based on the popular cartoon and toy line, the first five had Michael Bay at the helm, and, after LaBoeuf left too, the lead role went to Mark Wahlberg starring alongside several A-list models. While not everyone was a fan of Bay's storytelling, the last movie he directed, The Last Knight (2017) wasn't as successful as the rest of the franchise.

After a triumphant spin-off that Travis Knight created, Bumblebee (2018,) that didn’t involve either Bay or Wahlberg, the franchise is about to reinvent itself for a seventh movie with Steven Caple Jr. at the helm.

Set in the 90s, the film will pick up seven years after the events of Bumblebee, and its storyline will draw from the beloved cartoon series Transformers: Beast Wars. This time, we’ll be getting to see robots turning into huge, metallic animals, with battles taking place from Brooklyn to Machu Picchu in Peru.

A few weeks ago, the director shared a first look from the set in Peru of the Autobots and Decepticons we’ll get to see in the upcoming movie. The set wasn’t complete without Optimus Prime in his truck form and the iconic Bumblebee car, a Chevrolet Camaro. But he didn’t just show the “good guys,” he also gave a teaser of what we’re to expect when it comes to the Decepticons.

On Wednesday, October 20, the director hopped on Instagram again and shared a snap of himself behind the wheel of first-generation Optimus Prime to announce the world with a simple caption: “That’s a wrap.

The cast will include Anthony Ramos as Noah and Dominique Fishback as Elena as one of the lead human characters, and the Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is supposed to hit theaters on June 24, 2022, if all goes well.
