Transformers: Rise of the Beasts’ first trailer is full of Maximal action - The Verge

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts’ first teaser trailer introduces the Maximals Optimus Primal, Cheetor, and Airazor, and they all look absolutely stunning.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, from director Steven Caple Jr., revolves around ex-military gearhead Noah (Anthony Ramos) and museum researcher Elena (Dominique Fishback), two humans who accidentally become embroiled in yet another conflict between the Autobots and the Decepticons. 

The trailer makes it hard to tell of how the Maximals and Predacons — who are actually from the distant future — accidentally ended up in the prehistoric past due to an incident involving time travel. But it does make it stunningly clear that classic characters like Airazor (Michelle Yeoh), Cheetor, and Rhinox are going to be in the mix as Prime and his allies try to save the planet from destruction once again.
