In the animated film version of Transformers: The Movie (1986), Optimus Prime, who was on his way to find his creator, finally met Quintessa. However, it was later turned off instead. Then turned on again. And sent back to Earth. With the mission of stealing the Matrix of Leadership. I don’t know if the story in the live-action film version is the same.
In addition to the robots, human characters, who used to decorate the first three films, but were absent from the fourth Transformers film, also re-emerge. Call it Commander William Lennox (Josh Duhamel) and Sergeant Robert Epps (Tyrese Gibson). As well as former secret agent Seymour Simmons (John Turturro). That’s funny.
In addition to the old characters, there are also several new characters who, it seems, also have an important role. These include: Sir Edmund Burton, whose background was mentioned earlier in this paper, and Viviane Wembly (Laura Haddock), a Professor of English Literature from Oxford University.
In addition, in an attempt to uncover the origins of the Autobots, Sir Edmund Burton is also served by Cogman. Silver colored robots. Which can be transformed into a 2017 Aston Martin DB11 which, in terms of size, looks smaller when compared to the Transformers in general. Apart from Sir Edmund Burton and Viviane Wembly, what is also curious is the figure of Izabella (Isabela Moner).
The tomboyish baby girl, it is said, has lost both of her parents. They died when the City of Chicago was attacked by the Decepticons in the third Transformers film: Dark of the Moon (2011). Even Isabella, finally, lives on the streets. Accompanied by Canopy and Sqweeks. A cute robot. Which can turn into a Vespa. Actually, after Age of Extinction (2014), Bay has already decided to step down.
However, even though Michael Bay will be left behind, that doesn’t mean the Transformers franchise will end. In fact, Paramount Pictures, reportedly, has prepared a spin-off about Bumblebee. Which will be broadcast next year. And the sixth Transformers movie. Which will be released on June 28, 2019!
Paramount Pictures, it seems, is not playing games in developing the Transformers franchise. They want to follow in Disney’s footsteps. Which was a huge hit with its Marvel Cinematic Universe. As well as Warner Bros. Pictures. With its DC Extended Universe.
That said, to compete with the two major studios, Paramount Pictures wants to create a Hasbro Cinematic Universe. They intend to unite the toy characters produced by Hasbro in one film. Kind of like The Avengers and Justice League. So, get ready to see a collaboration between Transformers, Micronauts, and, of course, GI Joe!
With a superjumbo capital, reaching USD 260 million (the most expensive when compared to the four predecessor films), this fifth film is expected to be a blockbuster at the box office. At a minimum, equal the achievements of the previous two films. Which earned income above USD 1 billion.
