Paramount has announced that Transformers 7 would be the first of the two newly Transformers movies. It will have a tentative release date of June 2022.
The Transformers movie franchise has made an excellent mark on Hollywood for the past few years. With a combined $4.9 billion (7.6 trillion AUD) at the global box office spanning for more than a decade.
However, the past few installments of the franchise have not achieved the colossal earnings that Transformers built its prominence on. The movie franchise is now planning to make a return on the big screen.
Paramount, together with Hasbro, has scheduled Transformers 7 to be released on June 24, 2022. The new Transformers movie is yet to have a title and, its casts and crews are still to be announced.
However, the announcement also reveals that a few other Transformers projects are currently in the works.

As per reports, seasoned screenwriters James Vanderbilt and Joby Harold have both written individual scripts to take Transformers 7 in a new direction. The revelation also confirms that Bumblebee, a Transformers spin-off movie, will also get a sequel.
In addition, a brand new animated series titled Transformers: War for Cybertron will be aired on Netflix. The developers state that the animations series will institute a new animation style to the Transformers franchise.
Guessing the plot Paramount is planning to do in Transformers 7 will be tricky since both movies have the quality that would make them the correct fit. Producing a new movie which is set in the same universe as the first Bumblebee movie will build off from the triumph of the 2018 movie.
Moreover, the ending of the first Bumblebee movie has set up where a potential sequel would go. Such as Optimus Prime returning to Earth with more Autobots with him. On the other hand, a Beast Wars movie might induce nostalgia for the viewers from Michael Bay’s Transformers movies.
For the adults who were still growing up in the 90’s, the war between Maximals and Predacons are the best memories anyone could have. It has been more than a decade since Paramount released the first live-action adaption of Transformers.
It seems that now might be the ideal moment to move on to the Beast Wars generation. Looking at the current summer 2022 movie release dates, Transformers 7 will premier three weeks after The Flash. It would be a week before the proposed Pixar animated film and a couple of weeks ahead for Captain Marvel 2.
