Nobody is unaware of the critical and commercial success of the Transformers film series. Now, the first animated film in the franchise is set for release.

Pictures’ Beetlejuice 2 is also set to release in the same month.

It was disappointing, but not anymore. The studio dropped the official trailer for Transformers One in space on a weather balloon. Not only this, the release date for the movie has also been shifted. To learn more about the Transformers One release date, trailer, and cast, keep reading.

What is the plot of Transformers One?

The upcoming American animated science fiction action film is regarded as an origin story. It will introduce viewers to the Transformers planet, Cybertron. We will see how Optimus Prime and Megatron went from friends to enemies. Moreover, it will also solve the mystery of the inspiration behind the war between Autobots and Decepticons.

The synopsis for the movie is:

This long-awaited origin story of how the most iconic characters in the TRANSFORMERS universe, Orion Pax and D-16, went from brothers-in-arms to become sworn enemies, Optimus Prime and Megatron.

How good is the Transformers One trailer?

Paramount released the trailer for Transformers One on April 18, 2024. Undoubtedly, the studio outdid itself by first launching the trailer above the earth’s atmosphere, literally in outer space. This was done with the help of a weather balloon, which had a camera and a tablet attached. The tablet plays the trailer at an altitude of 125,000 feet. It is said to be one of its kind, and the film leads are seen reacting to it at the beginning of the official trailer.

Who is cast in Transformers One?

For the unversed, Transformers One is going to be the first animated film in the franchise in nearly 40 years. It will be the eighth installment in the Transformers film franchise since ‘The Transformers: The Movie’ was released in 1986. The voice cast for the highly anticipated movie is listed below.

  • Chris Hemsworth as Orion Pax / Optimus Prime
  • Brian Tyree Henry as D-16 / Megatron
  • Scarlett Johansson as Elita-1
  • Keegan-Michael Key as B-127 / Bumblebee
  • Jon Hamm as Sentinel Prime
  • Laurence Fishburne as Alpha Trion
  • Steve Buscemi as the film’s antagonist

What is the new release date for Transformers One?

Earlier, Transformers One was slated to make its theatrical debut on September 13, 2024. However, with the release of its recent trailer, we saw a shift in the premiere date. Now, the animated Transformers movie will hit theaters on September 20, 2024. This is because Warner Bros. Pictures’ Beetlejuice Beetlejuice is slated for release on September 6, 2024. It is expected to be a blockbuster, and thus, shifting the Transformers One release date two weeks away from Beetlejuice 2 seems like a wise decision, after all. This way, both movies can avoid box office conflict and maintain distance.
