Optimus Prime To Fight Unicron In ‘Transformers 5’

Voice actor Mark Ryan talked to the press at the UK-based Wings and Wheels convention and gave an update on Transformers 5. Ryan voiced Jetfire and Lockdown in previous films.

According to The Christian Post, the sequel will feature two major plot threads. One story to wrap a film around and a second story arc to lay ground work to expand the universe.

The first story arc will involve Mark Wahlberg’s Cade Yeager, a few Autobots and the Dinobots as they try to save Earth.

The second story according to Darkhorizon, Optimus Prime heads into space to find the creators of his race – a group known as the Quintessons. Optimus will also confront the giant transformer known as Unicron.

Transformers 5 is set to begin shooting early next year, and should be in theaters in 2017.
