Transformers 7: Rise of the Beasts Discussion Thread

Motto: "'till All Are One"
Deadline got a scoop yesterday about the next Live Action Transformers film. They said that the director would be Steven Caple Jr., who directed Creed 2. You can read part of the article below but it lacks a lot of details as to what that next movie is with very non committal wording like "revamp" which we have seen Hasbro and paramount use before when they weren't sure of what was coming next. But at least we know who the director will be if the deal does indeed come through in the coming weeks.

Following a lengthy search, Paramount Pictures and Hasbro Studios have set Steven Caple Jr. to direct the new Transformers pic in the reinvented universe. Insiders add while negotiations have yet to begin, he is the top choice among studio execs and producers and a deal should close in the coming weeks. After meeting with several top execs including Paramount Motion Picture President Emma Watts, the studio saw Caple as the best fit for the franchise that the studio chose to revamp at the top of the year.

In January, the studio made the decision to give the entire franchise a revamp by having two simultaneous scripts that are in active development: one by James Vanderbilt and one by Joby Harold. Harold’s film eventually would be chosen as the next installment in the franchise, and once he had given his final touches on the script at the end of the summer, the studio began taking director pitches on the next film.

While I've yet to see Creed 2, I do have some hope for Steven Caple Jr. While I do love a majority of the prior live-action films, I am interested in seeing some fresh eyes tackle the franchise with their own spin. That being said, I am ironically waiting for him to say that he's a big fan of the franchise yet focuses on just G1. There goes my hope for a distinct TF film that's able to be different from MV1-TLK yet not be slavish like BB

Still, I wonder if either this or the animated film will come out first and if it'll either be a normal TF film or be a Beast Wars adaptation.
Action Figure Wishlist:

POTP (Optimal Optimus, Rodimus Unicronus)
Titans Return (Blitzwing, Astrotrain)
All the Combiner Wars Aerialbots
Studio Series and WFC repaints
TFP Soundwave
Cybertron Galvatron
G1 Megatron (cheapest option would be the Chronicle 2-pack)
MPMs for cheap prices

My G1 Starscream needs fists. He's the Collection reissue and can't have a coronation without fists!

I honestly wasn't even expecting us to get another TF movie after the Kung Flu panic did a number on the movie theatre business, so this is a bonus in my book. I hope it's in continuity with BB; it wasn't perfect but it was the most I've enjoyed a TF movie since the 2007 one.

Really glad that beast wars is safe from being ruined -yet. Bee2 might be intersting if Bee gets all chromed and all the other bots are different kinds of 90's neon :P a G2 cast set in the 90's might just be different enough to freshen things up.

Hopefully the director wont have anything against mass shifting shrink chips cybertronians and not need to have a non existent mass shifting cube with no sense to the plot in his film.

I really enjoyed Creed 2, so I have hope for this. He did a great job with the source material, keeping the feel of a "Rocky" movie but emphasizing that it was Creed's movie. Nice touches such as the "Gonna Fly Now" anthem, good camera angles and great homages to the original Rocky movies.

I have hope for this. As long as it's not too heavy.
It finally happened. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Yes, I cried.

I'm more than okay with this.

I'm so tired of the Bay storytelling. I do hope it's more high energy than Bumblebee, love that film and it's a great start of a movie series. But the next needs to have a bit more characters and the main character robot needs to be on top of his game.
I like energetic, competent and driven people (Thank you Iron Man 1 / Winter Soldier etc.).

Next Transformers Film to be set in Early 90s and Luna Lauren Velez has been Cast

Postby william-james88 » Wed Jun 16, 2021 10:15 am

Motto: "'till All Are One"
With shooting starting soon in Montreal for the 7th live action Transformers movie, we are getting a lot of news and fast. Local casting agencies for extras have asked for cars from 1992-1994 and have sent out e-mails saying that extras in the movie will be in a 1992 setting. This news broke out over the transformersfr.com website.

We also have news that Dexter's Luna Lauren Velez has been cast as the main character's mom. That main character will be played by Anthony Ramos who stars in the recently released In the Heights film. That news comes to us from comicbookmovie.com.

Transformers Beast Alliance News: Optimus and Bumblebee Sighted + Beasts

Postby william-james88 » Mon Jun 21, 2021 11:38 am

Motto: "'till All Are One"
Filming for the 7th Transformers film called Beast Alliance is happening very soon. A particular truck was spotted being hauled in Canada heading towards Montreal. From the pictures taken, it looks quite a bit like Optimus Prime. A Bull Bar was put on the front of the truck, most probably as a safety measure to avoid damages during transportation. The photos have since been taken down, making us further think this truck is indeed who we think it is. Speaking of car sightings, a car looking just like Bumblebee has been spotted in Montreal. Coincidence? I think not. The picture from Twitter can be found below. Lastly, we have information that there will indeed be beast bots in this film. Granted, the working title was Beast Alliance, but you never know if that's just a smokescreen or not. This information is all that Protoman was allowed to say in his podcast after his set visit. He walked away happy and is confident many fans will be as well.

Notes from TRANSFORMERS Production Kickoff Virtual Event Confirmation including character reveals

Earlier today, Paramount held a virtual event for the upcoming Transformers 7 film. They revealed the title as Transformers: RISE OF THE BEASTS during the event and via this press release. Attending the virtual event were Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Producer), Steven Caple, Jr (Director), actors Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback along with moderator Anthony Brenzican (from Vanity Fair). Here are my notes from today's exciting TRANSFORMERS Production Kickoff Virtual Event Confirmation with Paramount:




Transformers 7 Production kick-off event

Director: Steven Caple, Jr
Moderator: Anthony Brenzican
Producer: Lorenzo di Bonaventura

  • Caple talked Beast Wars.
  • Title of next movie is Transformers Rise of the Beasts
  • Prehistoric, Predacons
  • Moderator mentioned Maximals, Predacons and "Terrorcons"? Not sure if he misspoke on Terrorcons.
  • Lorenzo talked about finding a new set of priorities with this direction.
  • Going to see new villains and Autobots we've never seen before.
  • Mentioned that Transformers has a lot of "tribes" and this movie is going to bring a lot of these "tribes" together.
  • Director mentioned Terrorcons again, so apparently not a mistake earlier. Terrorcons will disrupt the movie.
  • Difference between Predacons and Terrorcons. Predacons are more reptillian. Building a backstory to Predacons.
  • Predacons are the natural enemy of the Maximals.
  • Terrorcons are in opposition to the Autobots.
  • There will be some Decepticons in the movie.
  • 5 factions mentioned so far.
  • Terrorcons will threaten everyone.
  • Rise of the Beast time period will place around 1994.
  • Sounds like it will still be in the Bayverse. Intentionally setting it in 90s so that it doesn't cut into time period of Bay films.
  • 90s are rich in texture, mentioned music, and energy from the 90s. Director used the word "grit" to describe this era.
  • Drawing some inspiration from popular 90s films.
  • Will be a journey!
  • Lorenzo discussed how they are privileged to be part of this franchise. Access point are the human characters to get access to the Transformers characters.

Locations discussed:
  • New York City (Brooklyn) ... travel through New York, but Brooklyn is main area.
  • Peru, jungle, Monchu Pichu (sp?), beautiful landscapes, beautiful people. Incan traditions and how it impacts storyline.




Characters in Transformers Rise of the Beasts

Transformers characters discussed:
  • Main robot character ... is Optimus Prime, has a much more G1 flair. Cleaner look. Steven: "We are going G1 with Optimus Prime". Bringing the story back to see how (why?) Optimus Prime becomes the leader that we know. He's "new" to Earth. This film is forming why he wants to protect humans. Peter Cullen is returning as Optimus Prime.
  • Bumblebee as a Classic Z28 Camaro, but with an offroad kit on it. Literally called it Offroad Bumblebee.
  • Another Autobot ally ... Mirage is a silver Porsche 911 with blue detailing. Why not Jazz??? Rebel of the group. Anti-authority character. Lorenzo said Mirage has always been able to transform into other vehicles. Not sure what he was talking about? Mirage takes a prominence that is significant to the movie.
  • Arcee is 4th Autobot mentioned. Loyal soldier to Prime. Voice of reason. She transformers into a Motorcycle. Dakatti 916?
  • Another female Transformer is Nightbird. Vehicle form reminds me of Cybertron Runamuck. Transforms into a GTR. Still a ninja. Looks really cool. She's a Terrorcon. Lorenzo stated that she has had flexible allegiances in the past?
  • Different villain than Megatron. Big bad this time around is Scourge (but a different version than we've seen before). Leader of the Terrorcons. Looks like it might have a truck form or something. Large crane claw on left hand. Smokestacks behind shoulders with black smoke coming out of them. Sounds like a bounty hunter of sorts. Loves to collect Autobots and Maximals and tears off their faction symbols and wears them. Character design art by "Del Rio".
  • Beast Wars characters: Airazor. She's the heart of the Maximals. Rustic in design. Aged texture. Looks a bit rusty. Realistic mechanical beasts. Kind of gives me a Beast Machines vibe.
  • Rhinox is here as well. Looks like Headstrong. Likes to ram things. "Wants to use that horn!"
  • Optimus Primal as a gorilla. Has a traditional Maximal symbol on his chest. Not sure if that's final or not. Has hair on back of forearms and back of shoulders.

Human characters discussed:
  • Actors brought into conversation: Anothony Ramos and Dominique Fishback.
  • Dominique's character: playing Elena, works at a museum, trying to get a leg up in life, boss keeps taking credit for work she does. Intelligent person. Artifact researcher. Sophisticated thinker. New Yorker. If I recall correctly, she mentioned that she got into Transformers because of Shia and the first Michael Bay Transformers film.
  • Anothy's character: Noah, is from Brooklyn. Sort of like a father figure to his brother. All about taking care of home and family. Ex-military. Trying to find his way after came back home. Lower income. Hustling. Amazing with electronics. Anything electronic can fix. One thing he loves about Noah is his tenacity, heart, and will to never quit. Amazing to see his journey as humans meet Transformers in film. Anthony said Beast Wars was his Transformers.

Recap of characters discussed during today's event:
  • Anthony Ramos as "Noah"
  • Dominique Fishback as "Elena"
  • Optimus Prime
  • Bumblebee
  • Arcee
  • Mirage
  • Nightbird
  • Scourge
  • Airazor
  • Rhinox
  • Optimus Primal




Questions from the audience:

Are there practical elements to the film? Practical versus digital elements. Lorenzo says most of these movies are practical with digital effects enhancing the practical. The more you create "real", the more real the CG effects look. Steven: Cheat code for visual is partly the locations / scenery.

Daniel Cribb: What was some of main concerns coming into the legacy of Transformers?
Steven: balancing out what has come before and what he's going to bring to the table. Making sure people are feeling something new / fresh to the table. Something honest. Finding a relatability, a way to connect. Listens, close ear to the ground to hear what people are saying.

Rise of the Beasts will be more of a larger spectacle and not a smaller initimate film like Bumblebee.

Will there be rap music involved in the film? You will feel '94. Hip hop culture. You will feel Brooklyn. Will have a great soundtrack.


Who is your favorite Transformer and why?

Lorenzo: evolved over time. Ironhide originally because his son's favorite character. Bumblebee has been his favorite.

Steven: you haven't met his favorite character yet because it's in Rise of the Beasts. Loves Prime. Ironhide is a cool character. Of course 'Bee. Gonna be some dope characters he's going to introduce in this film.
