The robots in disguise are coming back to the big screen in summer 2022. Paramount Pictures has set a launch date to get a brand new Transformers movie, technically Transformers 7, which is among many which the studio has in development right now. The question now becomes, what film is it that we are likely to see if the franchise makes its return in a couple of years?
According to another report, this puzzle Transformers film is set to hit theatres on June 24, 2022. For the time being, that’s virtually all that is known, though it’s been noted that it can be for a live-action job. That means the newly announced animated prequel film from Toy Story 4 manager Josh Cooley could be ruled out, however you will find two other projects that we all know about that may fit the bill. As was reported in January, two new live-action films are in development currently, one of which will happen in the Bumblebee world, while the other is said to be a Beast Wars version.
It isn’t been made clear if this will be a sequel to 2018’s spin-off/prequel Bumblebee, or even anything else completely. Director Travis Knight’s revamp of the franchise was well-received critically and did well enough that Paramount sees fit to continue down the path for future installments.
James Vanderbilt, meanwhile, is currently handling Beast Wars. Details are scarce, but the land was launched by Hasbro from the 90s as a spin-off of the main Transformers franchise. It spawned a popular animated series that concentrates on the Maximals and Predacons, descendants of the Autobots and Decepticons. The series was said to occur in the future, but it is finally revealed that the show took place in the distant past on ancient Earth. The characters have titles like Optimus Primal, Cheetor, and Rhinox. Some of Vanderbilt’s previous credits include The Amazing Spider-Man, Zodiac, and White House Down.
Both of these movies could fit the bill to that new 2022 date. Or it can wind up being something else entirely. In any event, it’s obvious Paramount remains highly dedicated to this particular franchise. So far, across six live-action films, the series has made $4.84 billion at the global box office. The first five entries were led by Michael Bay. Following the collapse of The Last Knight, the studio decided to take things differently. We’ll be sure to keep you posted as any additional details on the project are made accessible.
