In the first casting news for the upcoming movie, Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts we have learned that Peter Cullen will not be voicing Optimus Primal. Actor Ron Perlman has been cast for this role. Check out what we know so far below and let us know what you think about the voice casting choice.
The movie will introduce the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons to the existing battle on Earth between Autobots and Decepticons, and Optimus Primal is definitely a Transformer you should be excited about seeing on screen.
The captain of the spaceship Axalon, he once saved Optimus Prime’s life, and while his beast mode was very nearly a bat, he chose to reject that in order to channel the far more powerful gorilla. How much of that backstory makes it into this movie remains to be seen, of course.
Directed by Steven Caple Jr., the movie’s human cast will feature Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback and Luna Lauren Velez
