Until Transformers: Rise of The Beasts, no fan considered the possibility of these distinct franchise crossing over in a live-capacity. Now, the seed has been planted and the tree continues to grow as development progresses.


The movie follows the events of last year’s Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, which ended with Anthony Ramos’ Noah or “Sonic”, getting quite the generous job offer from the Joes with healthcare for his ailing little brother.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mark Vahradian, Michael Bay, Tom DeSanto and Don Murphy are producing.  Steven Spielberg and Hasbro Entertainment will executive produce.
