Forums - Movies & TV - Transformers Rise of the Beasts is a New Trilogy, Transformers 8 & 9 Confirmed

Paramount confirms plans for Transformers 8 and Transformers 9, both of which will release after Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. The studio originally launched the Transformers movie franchise in 2007 with Micahel Bay directing and Shia LaBeouf starring. After five entries in the main series, Paramount delivered a soft reboot with Bumblebee in 2018, but a return for the main series is coming in 2023 with Rise of the Beasts. The upcoming movie takes place between Bumblebee and the Michael Bay movies, giving it a chance to bridge the gap in the franchise.

Details for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts position the film as a bit of relaunching point for the franchise. Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback are the new human leads, but the movie is also introducing new factions of the transforming beings. This includes the highly anticipated debut of the Maximals, as well as the Predacons and Terrorcons. While Paramount is making audiences wait until 2023 to see the new era for the Transformers franchise begin, the studio is already planning for it to be the beginning of a new trilogy.

In a recent announcement by Paramount about the future of their movie and TV programming, it has been announced that Transformers 8 and Transformers 9 are happening after Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. There are no additional details at this moment about the two upcoming sequels, such as if Ramos and Fishback will return to star or if Steven Caple Jr. will return to direct. Transformers 8 & 9 also do not have release dates at this time.

Nice, I havent seen the last two movies - need to do another marathon/catch up.

I lost interest in Transformers after the first few films, but Bumblebee wasn't bad. The film universe could use something of a soft reboot - or even a hard one - if they're going to keep making more.



To me the Transformer movies (the 2 I've seen anyway) failed to capture the spirit of the cartoons. I never realized they made 6 of them.



Signature goes here!

Bumblebee was fun, I enjoyed it, I absolutely hate that they're trying to connect it to the shitty Bayverse movies, they should have just made it its own universe.

The Netflix Transformers CG animated mini-series is what the actual movies should have been like, and a follow-up to them is what I’m hoping will be greelit.



I hope the next movies are as good as Bumblebee, and that the proposed Rise of The Beasts trilogy has a new rendition of this.



The only part of the first Michael Bay movie that I enjoyed was the Scorponok fight against the army in the desert.  I gave the 2nd movie a chance, but found it to be even worse, with the addition of racial stereotype transformers.  I completely lost interest in the series at that point and skipped the 3rd movie.  When I saw the first reveal trailer for the 4th movie (Age of Extinction), it actually piqued my interest somewhat.  But that interest was completely dashed when I later saw this movie poster:

Optimus Prime riding Grimlock like a horse?  Consider my childhood memories of G1 Transformers raped.  So, I skipped that movie as well, and had no interest in The Last Knight either.

I will admit that the Bumblebee movie piqued my interest again, but it was mainly because of the scenes on Cybertron.  I worried that would be a very small portion of the film, so I didn't make a serious effort to get to a theater while it was playing.  I'll probably stream it at some point.  I don't get how the mainline Transformers movies banked so much money.

The international box office iirc, like a lot of other big CGI spectacles that get critically panned. Art films get accolades but simple stories full of setpieces and explosions transcend language and cultural barriers.



Bumblebee was good. The rest of this franchise is a trash fire. I seriously worry for those who actually watch that garbage.
