Because the Transformers films still make more money than the GDP of many small countries put together (and with Age of Extinction holding strong as China’s biggest box office opening ever). work on the next film in the franchise is speeding forward. Paramount and Hasbro even put together two different writers’ think tanks to both figure out the future of the Transformers franchise and to possibly work on a Hasbro toy cinematic universe.
Regardless of how it turns out, we’re getting a lot of Transformers. Announced on social media (and Michael Bay), the next Transformers is officially titled Transformers: The Last Knight. Presumably referring to the ending of the last film, the title implies the film will be a movie where an angry Optimus Prime (confirmed as the last knight of Cybertron and frontman of the band, Knights of Unicron) fights some other alien robots. The film begins production in Cuba next week with Mark Wahlberg returning and Jerrod Carmichael and Isabel Moner joining the cast.
Transformers: The Last Knight releases June 23, 2017, with a follow up planned for June 2018, June 2019, and every June until the heat death of the universe.
