What is the Transformers One release date? A new Transformers animated movie is coming to the big screen, titled Transformers One.

While the franchise has a long history of animation (with the famous Transformers TV series being animated) Transformers One is set to be the first animated movie in the series in 40 years. Fans of the best action movies in the franchise will be thrilled to see the return of classic Autobots and Decepticons who you know and love, and boasts a stunning cast of voice actors. Josh Cooley of Toy Story 4 is the director while Steven Spielberg will serve as executive producer. Big names, indeed.

So, following its announcement at CinemaCon 2023, Transformers One might just be one of the most exciting new movies to look forward to, and more Transformers movies is always a good thing. Here’s what we know about the Transformers One release date, cast, plot, and much more.

Transformers One release date

Get ready Autobots, because the Transformers One release date is September 13, 2024.

The date has unfortunately been delayed since CinemaCon audiences were the first to hear about the movie. It’s only a short setback, though, with the date nudged from July to September. Either way, Transformers fans won’t have too long to wait after the Transformers 7 release date before they get their next franchise fix.

Transformers One cast

The Transformers One cast list includes some of the biggest names in Hollywood including MCU actors Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson.

Alongside the rest of the Transformers One cast, they’re set to star as some of the most iconic Transformers characters that fans have come to love over the years. Thor to Optimus Prime is quite the trajectory for Hemsworth.

Transformers One cast list so far:

  • Chris Hemsworth as Optimus Prime
  • Brian Tyree Henry as Megatron
  • Scarlett Johansson as Elita
  • Keegan-Michael Key as Bumblebee
  • Jon Hamm as Sentinel Prime
  • Laurence Fishburne as Alpha Trion

Most of these names will be well known to Transformers fans, while there are also a few more obscure characters, including Elita and Alpha Trion. Prepare to learn plenty more about them when the new movie drops. Additionally, the Transformers One cast list could grow as we get closer to the release date. Expect more bots, both good and bad.

What will Transformers One be about?

The Transformers One plot is set to follow younger versions of Optimus Prime and Megatron in an origin story for the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. Specifically, it will follow the leaders of the two factions as they go from comrades to enemies.

That’s all we know for certain on the Transformers One plot, but based on the characters confirmed for the movie we can also make a few more educated guesses. With Sentinel Prime and Alpha Trion being involved, we can speculate it will explore the background to the Transformers as we know them, while the planet of Cybertron (and its origins) could get the spotlight shone on it.

As the release date draws nearer and we get our first look at the movie through the trailer, we should be able to deduce much more about the shape of the plot. Speaking of the trailer…

Transformers One trailer speculation

We haven’t been able to see a Transformers One trailer just yet. However, with the release date being set for a little over a year away, it won’t be too long until we get our eyes on the goods.

The Transformers One trailer will be hotly anticipated, not least by us, because it will shine a light on the visual style of what will hopefully be one of the best animated movies of the year. We can’t wait, personally, and in the meantime we’re rewatching the trailer for Rise of the Beasts (above) for the 79th time.

Where can I watch Transformers One?

Transformers One will debut in cinemas upon its release date, before being available to watch on VOD and streaming after its theatrical run. It will most likely land on streaming service Paramount Plus, which serves as the online home for the majority of other Transformers movies.

That’s it on Transformers One. For more Autobot and Decepticon action, check out our guides to Terrorcons, learn all about Unicron, and find out if Optimus Prime was ever a Decepticon. We’ve also explained why the new Transformers movie had to be blessed by a shaman.
