And the Transformers movie franchise continues to roll out. This past weekend, Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts debuted in theaters around the world. In this latest Transformers movie, we not only get Autobots, but the Maximals are also introduced to filmgoers.
I remember when Transformers: Beast Wars originally aired on television. I was upset. I didn’t believe they were real Transformers because they weren’t vehicles. They were a cheap knock-off putting Transformers into animals.
Eventually, I came to love the Beast Wars series. The story was well-done, the animation was top-notch, and spawned multiple off-shoots.
In Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts, Earth faces a significant threat. Unicron (Colman Domingo), a planet-sized Transformer, is searching for the Transwarp Key. This device would allow him to warp anywhere in space or time. It’s a powerful device. One that would cause the destruction of the universe.
