Cinematic fans attending CinemaCon this year were treated to a delightful surprise as Paramount revealed fresh footage from the much-anticipated animated feature ‘Transformers One.’ Chris Hemsworth, better known as Marvel’s Thor, leads the film’s voice cast as the iconic Optimus Prime. Directed by Josh Cooley and narrating the origin story of the mighty Autobot, the film is set to grip audiences nationwide starting from September 12, 2024.

Created by a Talented Team

The script powering ‘Transformers One’ comes from the pens of a strong writing team comprising Andrew Barrer, Steve Desmond, and Gabriel Ferrari. The animated film explores the relationship and ensuing rivalry between Autobot leader Optimus Prime, voiced by Hemsworth, and Decepticon Megatron, brought alive by Brian Tyree Henry.

A Stellar Voice Cast

The movie showcases an impressive voice ensemble, with Scarlett Johansson playing Elita, Keegan-Michael Key as Bumblebee, Jon Hamm portraying Sentinel Prime, and Laurence Fishburne enacting Alpha Trion. During Paramount’s panel at CinemaCon, Johansson introduced Hemsworth via a video clip broadcasted from New York. Hemsworth paid tribute to the late Peter Cullen, the original voice of Optimus Prime, expressing pride in sharing the role with Cullen and adding to the character’s legacy.

A Fresh Look at Cybertron

According to Bryan Tyree Henry, ‘Transformers One’ is about the journey of Optimus Prime and Megatron from comrades to fierce adversaries. The film offers a unique take on their origin story set on their home planet, Cybertron. Memorable, wild transformation scenes of the robots, buoyed by a light-hearted undercurrent, promise to enthrall viewers.

Impressive Footage

The footage showcased at CinemaCon has already garnered positive reviews. JoBlo’s editor-in-chief, Chris Bumbray, praised the footage, comparing it to the critically acclaimed ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.’ However, the comedic tone of the film might not appeal to all fans.

An Explosive Sequence

The Paramount panel at CinemaCon saw the airing of an intense 3D sequence from the film featuring a train heist on Cybertron by Prime, Megatron, and Bumblebee, only to be intercepted by Akira. The subsequent combat scene stirred overwhelming excitement among the audience.

A Promise of a Trilogy

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, producer of the Transformers franchise, shared details of ‘Transformers One’ back in May 2023. He fueled the anticipation by hinting at the possibility of the film priming a trilogy, narrating a heart-rending tale of parceled allegiances, set in a world beyond imaginations.

In Bonaventura’s words, “we’re telling the story of young Optimus and young Megatron… We really are telling the origin story of all Transformers… If you tried to make this live-action, it would probably be a billion-dollar movie or something.”

Fan Excitement

Excitement is brewing among fans as the release date of ‘Transformers One’ inches closer. With Hemsworth’s charismatic voice powering Optimus Prime, it will indeed be interesting to see how the film delivers on the high expectations.
