CelebnMovies247.com reports that Director Steven Caple Jr. found the best way to celebrate the end of filming on Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.
We previously reported that the Last Knight sequel was in the works but the film is actually a prequel. It will follow the Bumblebee movie
The Transformers film franchise was once a massive cinematic juggernaut, but ever since Michael Bay decided to move on, the series has clearly been directionless.
Until now, director Steven Caple Jr. is looking to breathe new life into the series, and fans will be excited to know that the movie is now one step closer to becoming a reality.
Yes, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts has now wrapped.
Caple Jr. celebrated the milestone in the best possible way, celebrating, Optimus Prime.
You can see in the photo, Caple is sitting in the cab of Optimus Prime.
Michael Bay directed Transformers:
The first five Transformers movies weren’t exactly critical darlings but they did make giant piles of cash at the global box office.
But after Bay left, Bumblebee was the first Transformers movie the many critics actually liked, but that didn’t do nearly the box office business of previous installments.
Bay’s Transformers movies are overly sexualized with Megan Fox and ladies who resembled Fox after she left after Transformers Revenge of The Fallen.
Bumblebee has had a blend of storylines for the actors that gave a solid foundation between the lead and Bumblebee.
Clearly, what the Transformers movies would like to be is a combination of the two, and maybe Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will be that.
The title alone, and its connection to the popular Beast Wars corner of the franchise, would seem to indicate a plan to start more or less fresh.
Transformers Prequel Movie “Beast Wars”:
Rise of the Beasts isn’t a reboot, not directly anyway. It’s set in 1994 and will include characters like Bumblebee and (obviously) Optimus Prime, so it would seem the new movie will fit into the, increasingly confusing, continuity of the previous films. This will set the films in between the ‘80s themed Bumblebee and the rest of the franchise.
While these classic Transformers will appear, the focus, based on the title, will be the Beast Wars characters. The great Ron Perlman will voice Optimus Primal for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and several other characters familiar to Beast Wars fans have also been confirmed. In the Heights star Anthony Ramos will play one of the lead human characters.
By introducing a bunch of brand new characters, if this movie is the success everybody is looking for, we could see a new franchise born here.
Considering that Beast Wars was a popular animated series that gave fresh life to Transformers following the success of the ‘80s cartoon series, it’s possible that this is exactly what the big screen needs as well.
