Originally scheduled for a June 24, 2022 release, the seventh installment to the blockbuster action sci-fi franchise has been pushed back to nearly a year later and is now slated to arrive in theaters on June 9, 2023.

The delay comes after the high-profile project had recently wrapped up its production earlier this month. Its new theatrical release date will see the Anthony Ramos-led film going up against two untitled mystery projects from 20th Century Studios, and Universal Pictures.

The film will be led by Anthony Ramos (Hamilton, In the Heights) and Dominique Fishback (Judas and the Black Messiah). Joining them are returning characters Bumblebee and Autobot Mirage, along with the introduction of Scourge, Arcee, Nightbird, Air-Razor, Rhinox, and Optimus Primal. The latter will be voiced by Ron Perlman.

Returning to the action and spectacle that first captured moviegoers around the world 14 years ago with the original Transformers, the newest installment Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will take audiences on a ‘90s globetrotting adventure and introduce the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons to the existing battle on earth between Autobots and Decepticons. Set to take place in New York City and Peru, the new live-action film will follow Optimus Prime in G1 robot form in the ’90s as he is new to Earth.Returning to the action and spectacle that first captured moviegoers around the world 14 years ago with the original Transformers, the newest installment Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will take audiences on a ‘90s globetrotting adventure and introduce the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons to the existing battle on earth between Autobots and Decepticons.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is being directed by Creed II director Steven Caple Jr. from a screenplay written by Joby Harold. Further details about its plot and characters are still under wraps but are reportedly expected to pick up the story threads established in 2018’s “soft reboot” Bumblebee.

Executive producers are Steven Spielberg, Brian Goldner, David Ellison, Dan Goldberg, Don Granger, Brian Oliver, Bradley J. Fischer, and Valerii An, with Transformers director Michael Bay, Tom DeSanto, Don Murphy, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mark Vahradian, and Duncan Henderson serving as producers. It is a production among Skydance Media, eOne, Bay Films, Di Bonaventura Pictures, and New Republic Pictures.
