Annual release dates set for Transformers 5, 6 and 7
UPDATE: It has been confirmed that the 2018 Transformers film will be a Bumblebee spin-off movie.
We hope you packed extra Energon cubes, because the Transformers franchise is taking you on a three-year journey. Paramount Pictures has not only set the official release date for Transformers 5, but also for Transformers 6 and Transformers 7!
Transformers 5, featuring a script by Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down), will be directed once again by Michael Bay and is set to crash into theaters on June 23, 2017, where it will open against Warner Bros.’ upcoming Wonder Woman movie. Mark Wahlberg has also confirmed he will return for the film.
Transformers 6 will drop in the next year on June 8, 2018, where it will clash with Legendary’s Godzilla sequel; with Transformers 7 landing the next year on June 28, 2019. Details on both of these films have not been confirmed.
Last year, Paramount began forming a Transformers “writers room” with the purpose of planning out both multi-part sequels in the main franchise and character spin-offs. The only other film confirmed to be in-development out of the franchise brain trust is an animated “origin story” film that will be set on the Transformers’ homeworld of Cybertron.
