All About TRANSFORMERS: Rise Of The Beasts:
OPTIMUS PRIME and AUTOBOTS take on their biggest challenge yet! When a new threat capable of destroying the entire planet emerges, they must team up with a powerful faction known as the MAXIMALS.
With the fate of humanity hanging in the balance, Noah (Anthony Ramos) and Elena (Dominique Fishback) will do whatever it takes to help the TRANSFORMERS as they engage in the ultimate battle to save Earth.
Finally, Of course, Optimus Prime is back (yay!!) and leading the Autobots once again. He is joined by his loyal team, including Bumblebee, Mirage, and Arcee.
One of the Maximals is Optimus Primal, who is a different character from Optimus Prime. He is a gorilla-like robot with a strong sense of justice and a heart of gold. Airazor is another Maximal, who can transform into a bird and has a sharp eye for spotting enemies from afar!
There are also Terrorcons who are a group of 5 Decepticons who have been resurrected by Unicron, a powerful entity that seeks to destroy the universe.
The Terrorcons include these 5 characters:
Scourge (the leader)

Trivia and Easter Eggs
We are excited to share some of the Trivia and Easter Eggs we discovered in Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts! From hidden references to previous Transformers movies to nods to the franchise’s history, there are plenty of details to look out for in this latest TRANSFORMERS movie!
*On the dashboard of Bumblebee’s car, you will see a picture of Charlie Watson (played by Hailee Steinfeld in the movie Bumblebee). This leads us to believe that Bumblebee still thinks about Charlie.
*When Unicron appears in the movie, you will hear the theme music from TRANSFORMERS: The Movie (released in 1986). Brings back some feelings of nostalgia for sure!
*In one scene, you will see the main character watching a movie on television. The actor in that movie is Mark Wahlberg! In case you did not know, Mark played one of the main characters in the previous two TRANSFORMERS movies! So cool to see/notice that!
*The scorpion-shaped Decepticon named Scorponok (from the 2007 TRANSFORMERS movie) makes a comeback in this new movie!
*Some say the biggest Easter egg of all in this new movie is when Mirage transforms into an F1 car. If you are a longtime fan of TRANSFORMERS you might recognize this as his original form in the TRANSFORMERS G1 cartoon.
*Noah gets a job interview for a security guard (so he thinks). But, it is actually an interview for something much BIGGER! A secret government organization, a special unit called G.I. Joe! TRANSFORMERS and G.I. Joe are said to have had crossovers before (comic books). Many think that G.I. Joe is going to be a BIG part of the TRANSFORMERS franchise now!
Those are just a few Easter eggs we noticed (and researched!). Let us know if you notice any Easter eggs too! I would love to hear about things we might have missed!
