Transformers 7 Release Date: Will There Be a Transformers 8?

A story claims to have seen Optimus Prime in action at CinemaCon 2022 (the convention for film distributors), and that his design is a mashup of the Michael Bay era and the G1 era (opens in new tab). In one scene, we see Anthony Ramos driving a Porsche and reacting to mayhem while surrounded by six more of the same model.

For our patients, we now know that this rebooted Transformers film series is just getting started. The growth and extension of the Transformers Cinematic Universe that fans have craved for so long will finally happen in this chapter. The Terrorcons and the Maximals will join the Autobots and Decepticons in the theatre, and their versions of Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal will face off against one another.

Bumblebee, the sixth installment in the long-running Transformers film series directed by Travis Knight, served as both a prequel to the series and a soft reboot, taking place in 1987. (Hollywood power player Michael Bay directed all six previous Transformers movies).

Directed by Steven Caple Jr. (Creed II), Rise of the Beasts is the next chapter in the saga that began in Bumblebee and is set in 1994 in Brooklyn. Naturally, with so much going on, nothing will stay in one spot for very long.

After being asked if there would be another Transformers movie in 2019, Cena responded, “I hope so” (opens in new tab). “I loved working with Travis [Knight], but I didn’t love the movie. If it does well financially, though, maybe we can work together again.”

Transformers 7: Rise of the Beasts Plotline

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts picks up where the previous film left off, with the introduction of the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons altering the dynamic of the struggle between the Autobots and the Decepticons. We don’t yet know if that’s a good or bad thing.

Without an official synopsis, we can only speculate about what will happen in the film based on what we know about the characters and the fact that it is a reboot. This is only conjecture, but you should know that it’s probably really accurate.

If the clip is any indication, Noah will meet Mirage, who will introduce him to the other Autobots, and Elena will discover the long-hidden Maximals on Earth while searching for a relic. It’s only natural that the Predacons would return once the Maximals did.

Because of this, Optimus Prime and his Autobots might notice the Maximals and consider them allies. Terrorcons, who are likely on a mission to hunt down the brutish Cybertronians, would also arrive on Earth if the Maximals did.

It’s also likely that by the film’s conclusion, the Autobots and the Maximals will have joined forces to defeat the Terrorcons and permanently eliminate the threat posed by the Predacons and the Decepticons. Sure, that seems about right, though we won’t know for sure until we see the film.

Will There Be a Transformers 8?

Indeed, a Transformers 8 is in the works. While confirming a 2023 release date for Rise of the Beasts, the official Paramount Plus Twitter also announced the upcoming releases of Transformers 8 and 9. The message referred to Rise of the Beasts as “the first in three new installments.”

Is There a Transformers 7 Trailer?

As seen in a teaser film published by Paramount on December 1, 2022, the Maximals include a gorilla, a cheetah, and an eagle.


Following the events of Bumblebee, the 1990s serve as the backdrop for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. Beginning in 1994, the film’s narrative will most likely progress chronologically. To keep fans guessing, our Cybertronian heroes and villains will travel to exotic locales all around the globe.

We know that Machu Picchu plays a role in the tale because of the locations used during filming. Perhaps even more events will take place on Cybertron, possibly during the conflict between the Autobots and the Decepticons. For more details visit our website
