The official synopsis of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is as follows:

In 1994, a pair of archaeologists from Brooklyn come into an ancient conflict through a globe-trotting adventure that ties in with three factions of Transformers: the Maximals, the Predacons, and the Terrorcons.

Currently holding the spot as 13th highest-grossing film series, a lot are excited for what comes next for the title.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will go deep in the roots of the Autobots team on Earth as it will see their origins where it would be shown why Optimus Prime, who will don his original G1 design, really wanted to protect Earth.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will follow the iconic Beast Wars storyline which will see the main factions of the Transformers with the Maximals, who are the descendants of the Autobots, and the Predacons, who came from the Decepticons.

The Maximals are on the good side while the Predacons are on the opposite end.

In the center of it all in Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is none other than Optimus Prime who is set to get the G1 treatment with the design of the character.

It will dive deep into the reasons why Optimus Prime will be fighting alongside the people on Earth and this is where he starts his heroic journey.

The Autobots will be getting a bigger role as director Steven Caple Jr. teased in an interview.

Speaking with Box Office Pro (via ComicBook.com), Steven Caple Jr., director of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, teased, "We take the term 'Autobot' and bring it to a whole new level."

Caple Jr. said, "Without spoiling the film? I can't -- but I will say that there is a moment toward the end of the movie that I'm really excited for people to see."

Caple Jr. added, "I can't go into an ymore detail, but it's a very emotionally powerful moment in the third act of the movie that you'll recognize when you see it in a theater."

Caple Jr. further explained, "I pay close attention to all my followers on Twitter -- even the crazy fans out there -- so I'll be looking to see their reaction on social media after the movie comes out."

"I think audiences are going to be blown away by it when they see it on the big screen. Our climactic battle sequence at the end of the film is going to pay off in a big way," Caple Jr. concluded.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is said to be a soft reboot of the series given that it will be starting from the origins, and will be set in the 90s.

This could lead to a potential expansion of the whole Transformers movie franchise.
