The first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight seems to hint at a G1 Transformers animated series storyline which sees the Quinntesons bring back Optimus Prime to life as a bad guy. Two species at war – one flesh, one metal.
The new Transformers film is exactly what you’d expect from the series – big explosions, big robots, big wars, big destruction and a big world. The trailer seems to hint at a story that involves Unicron (a planet eater), the Matrix of Leadership, and the Quinntesons.
