Michelle Yeoh and Pete Davidson have joined the cast for the upcoming seventh instalment in the Transformers franchise, 'Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.'
Michelle Yeoh and Pete Davidson have signed on to lend their voices to next year's Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. The film, directed by Steven Caple Jr., will serve as a soft reboot for the Michael Bay series which originated in 2007.
Davidson has been cast as Mirage, an Autobot whose disguise is a silver-blue Porsche 964. This character did appear in 2011's Transformers: Dark of the Moon, voiced by the late Francesco Quinn. Yeoh will lend her voice to the Maximal known as Airazor. This character's disguise is a peregrine falcon, following the custom of Maximals disguising as animals.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will be set in the 1990’s and will show audiences some serious robot action that should result in one of the more artistically proficient recent Transformers films. With a New York setting for some of the action in the new picture, the other main cast members of the upcoming epic adventure film are Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback. This movie is set to be unveiled in theaters on June 9, 2023, although release dates are, as past experience has proven, sometimes subject to change.
