Production

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura said that a major Transformers movie “would be produced” and that it “would be different than the ones that we’ve done before” in response to a question on the future of the franchise in December 2018. He compared the process to a “evolution,” noting that there is greater freedom in terms of creation and application. Following the movie’s success with Bumblebee that year, he announced that the series will be changing in tone and style. Travis Knight, the director of Bumblebee, stated that his intention was to rejoin his animation company, Laika, even though he did admit that he had some ideas for a follow-up. John Cena said he would be open to playing the same part in a follow-up.

It was announced in January 2020 that Paramount Pictures was developing two distinct Transformers movies, one penned by Joby Harold and the other by James Vanderbilt. Harold’s screenplay was hired by Steven Caple Jr. to be directed in November. The working title Transformers: Beast Alliance was disclosed in February 2021, implying the inclusion of characters from the Beast Wars universe. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is the official title, which di Bonaventura and Caple revealed during a virtual event hosted by Paramount in June. This title confirms that the film will feature the Maximals, the Predacons, and a new perspective on the Terrorcons faction. It also reveals that the film is a combined Beast Wars and Bumblebee sequel. The action and tone of the movie were greatly inspired.

Music

The film’s soundtrack was composed by Jongnic Bontemps, who had previously collaborated with Caple on his feature debut, The Land. Bontemps follows Steve Jablonsky and Dario Marianelli as the third composer in the series. On March 27, 2023, recording sessions for the score got underway at Warner Bros.’ Eastwood Scoring Stage. Jablonsky would go on to compose the soundtrack for the movie. Jablonsky’s “Arrival to Earth” and “No Sacrifice, No Victory” from Transformers (2007) are mentioned in the score, along with Vince DiCola’s “Unicron Medley” from Transformers: The Movie (1986). Caple revealed that music from the rap groups Wu-Tang Clan and A Tribe Called Quest would be included in order to maintain the authenticity of the film’s setting. The song “On My Soul” was composed on May 18, 2023.

Marketing

December 1, 2022 saw the publication of a teaser trailer. In an interview with BET, Caple talked about his choice of a hand-picked version of The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy” song for the trailer. Since the film is set in the 1990s, when Notorious B.I.G.’s album “Ready to Die” was released, he remarked that it was the “perfect” option. He went on to say that a lot of what they were accomplishing in the movie was encapsulated in Notorious B.I.G.’s “voice and what he meant in that era and time”. More than any other trailer in Paramount’s history, the trailer had 238 million views on YouTube in its first 24 hours. It ranked fourth within that 24-hour period, behind the first Spider-Man: No. 1 and two trailers for Avengers: Endgame (2019).

During Super Bowl LVII on February 12, 2023, a 30-second TV advertising for Porsche was broadcast. The Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Optimus Prime on March 4, 2023, at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. Prime would then make an appearance at Coachella 2023, introducing Tobe Nwigwe, one of the movie’s stars, more than a month after that. On April 27, 2023, the trailer was unveiled. It makes use of DMX’s “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem”. Although others pointed out that the DMX song utilized in the movie wasn’t released until 1998, four years after it was set, many critics focused on Scourge and Unicron’s presence as the main antagonists.

Future

Rising of the Beasts is the first of three upcoming Transformers films, according to a February 2022 announcement from Paramount. A crossover between the Transformers and G.I. Joe franchises was also planned by Paramount, it was revealed in May 2023. This is a potential future, as suggested by Noah’s invitation to join G.I. Joe at the conclusion of Rise of the Beasts. While the crossover would not affect the events of the first five episodes of the franchise, di Bonaventura said in July 2023 that he thought “continuity’s overblown, because sometimes you miss a great idea.” A subsequent CinemaCon 2024 would see the official announcement of the crossover.
