“Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will take audiences on a ‘90s globetrotting adventure and introduce the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons to the existing battle on earth between Autobots and Decepticons,” wrote Paramount Pictures.
The film is set in 1994, just after the Bumblebee spin-off. It once again tackles the war between Autobots and Decepticons on earth, with the addition of the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons for the first time.
Beast Wars’ Maximals and Predacons are transformers whose alternate forms are based on organic animals. In the teaser trailer, we see Optimus Primal (voiced by Ron Perlman) in his gorilla form.
Meanwhile, Terrorcons are a Decepticon subgroup that can change their forms to frightening beasts.
