Transformers 5 Release Date, News, and Updates: Akiva Goldsman Shared Beast Wars Plot Line for T5 Possible?

By Princess Love

Back in Transformers 4, we saw Optimus Prime leaving Earth. There are theories that this is to go to the creators and many are hinting that the upcoming Transformers 5 will not happen here on Earth but in another planet. Additionally, Akiva Goldsman shared that T5 is written with 'Beast Wars' in mind. 

Here's the latest on 'Transformers 5' release date, news, and updates.

The news of 'Transformers 5' has been around since last year, but slowly we're getting more and more information about the film.

For one, we know that Michael Bay has finally decided to go back to the franchise; however we still don't know who will be the lead actor for the upcoming movie. And seems like this lack of information is a clue as to what will happen in 'Transformers 5'.

If you were like me and you have seen 'Transformers' growing up, you'll know that the center of the cartoons is all about the Autobots; however in the movies the center of story seems to be more human-centric and the Transformers appears to be supporting characters in a movie that titled after them.

But fret not, it seems like we'll be seeing 'Transformers' as the way it should be; going back to its roots.

In Akiva Goldsman's (Head Screen Writer of 'Transformers 5') interview with Deadline, he said,

"We will look at the toys, the TV shows, the merchandise, everything that has been generated by Hasbro, from popular to forgotten iterations, and establish a mythological time line. It has been designed with a lot of visual help, toys, robots, sketches and writers and artists. After that super saturation, the writers will figure out not one, but numerous films that will extend the universe."

He further added, "If one of the writers discovers an affinity for Beast Wars, they can drive forward on treatments that will have been fleshed out by the whole room."

We know that Optimus Prime left Earth in 'Transformers 4' and it seems like Bumble Bee and the rest of the gang are left to their own devices in protecting Earth. There are rumors that we'll be seeing Ultra Magnus, Overrise and Red Alert in 'Transformers 5'. Meanwhile, Cyclonus, Scourge, and Blitzwig will be joining forces with Galvatron.

There's still no confirmed premier date for 'Transformers 5' but it is believed to be release early 2017.
