Most of us 90s and early 20s kids have grown up watching the popular and sensational Transformers 7 series. Transformers provided us with a respite from the common mundane life and gave us a world that was jam-packed with explosions and action of giant robots tracking the story of Optimus Prime and Megatron.
2007 marked the start of the first movie which goes by the name “Transformers” followed by Revenge of the Fallen in 2009, Dark of the Moon in 2011, Age of Extinction in 2014 and The Last Knight in 2017. Michael Bay, hired by Paramount for the first movie, went on to direct all the five transformer movies. The transformers 7 series has constantly received moderate to negative critic reviews. Though, BumbleBee which was a spin-off movie directed by Travis Knight and produced by Bay released in 2018 and received only positive reviews. The series are taken up by both DreamWorks and Paramount Pictures. The Transformers franchise is the 13th highest grossing film series.
Though the franchise is an old one with a vast fan base, the reviews for the same have been degrading ever since the first movie came out. Whether or not the seventh movie satisfies the fans is still a question up in the airs.
The 7th installment of the series will be Transformers: The Rise of Unicron. The story line will possibly pick up from where the last movie ended. In the last movie we saw that Optimus Prime gets some knowledge about Cybertron and his origin. An extravagant fight sequence between Quintessa and Unicron is expected with Earth acting as the middle ground for intergalactic battle.
The movie was originally expected to be released in the month of June, 2019 but was dropped and is now expected to undergo several and major changes.
The release date is expected to be linked with Bumblebee 2 and is supposed to be out by 2021. Reportedly it is rumored that the movie might not apply as a direct sequel to The Last Knight. No easter eggs on the cast have been dropped yet, however the fans are expecting some new faces. For now, the fans can only hope for the franchise to take a good turn and ace the next movie in line.
