Who’s Who in ‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts’?
To avoid confusion, we give you a guide to the heroes and villains we will see in ‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts’ on the big screen.
We are hours away from the premiere of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts starring Peter Dinklage, Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh and The Suicide Squad’s Pete Davidson. A few days ago, the new Transformers family toured Mexico City to present the next phase of the robot universe with unrelenting beasts, where voice actors Michelle Rodríguez and Javier Ibarreche were also present. In order not to be confused, we tell you who will be in the tape directed by Steven Caple Jr.
Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime
The leader of the Autobots and the face of the Transformers franchise will be voiced by none other than Peter Cullen himself. Optimus is the fearsome leader of the Autobots, a group of benevolent Transformers who find themselves in a deadly civil war against the fearsome Decepticons.
Anthony Ramos is Noah, the last man involved in saving the Earth. Although not much is known about his role so far, he appears new to helping the Autobots protect the world and slowly but surely forms a bond with the Autobot Mirage.
Dominique Fishback as Elena
Dominique Fishback will play Elena, the film’s second human lead. She is a researcher at a museum but has a boss who never gives her credit for her good work. She is also an ally of the Autobots.
Pete Davidson as Mirage
Saturday Night Live comedian and former partner of Kim Kardashian Pete Davidson will play Mirage. He is an Autobot spy with the ability to project holograms and transform into a silver blue Porsche 964.
Colman Domingo as Unicron
Colman Domingo, actor from Euphoria, is Unicron. Unicron is a much bigger threat than the Decepticons, Predacons and everyone else combined. A world-eating cosmic destroyer, usually taking the form of a biomechanical planet.
Liza Koshy as Arcee
Influencer and comedian Liza Koshy will take on the role of Arcee, taking over from actress Gray Griffin. Arcee and her sisters prefer to use smaller and faster two-wheeled motorcycles to take down enemies quickly and efficiently.
Ron Perlman as Optimus Primal
A central figure in the saga and a descendant of Optimus Prime himself is Optimus Primal, who will be played by actor Ron Perlman. The story of the beasts begins at least a few hundred years after the many conflicts between Optimus Prime and Megatron.
Michelle Yeoh’s airizer
The protagonist of Everything Everywhere at Once will give life to a key character in the conflict of the Beasts. Airazor is the eye in the sky for the Maximals as it takes the form of a hawk to survey the battlefield and attack from above.
Peter Dinklage is the Scourge
The actor of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones is the voice of one of the main villains: Scourge, the leader of the Terrorcons. In the trailer, the evil robot can be seen fighting against the beloved Autobot Bumblebee. He is a wild hunter and transforms into a Black Kenworth logging truck.
