"Transformers: The Last Knight" teaser will be out on December 16, 2016, in the "Star Wars" Movie "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" as announced by "Transformers 5" director Michael Bay on a facebook video message. Fans are getting excited to see the action sequences in the movie.

Some of the words attributed to the upcoming "Transformers: The Last Knight" movie are Excalibur, King Arthur, Merlin, Hitler, the Nazis, Mini Dinobots and a three-headed Dragon. In a Sci-Fi action based film about aliens (the Decepticons and Autobots) that can shift their forms into cars, planes and other machinery, it would be hard to imagine integrating historical personas such as Adolf Hitler and Winston Churchill to the movie. But with "Transformers", nothing is impossible. In the upcoming sequel of the "Transformers" franchise, more history from the past would unfold to our protagonists.

Optimus Prime came home to his mother planet and discovered it to be "dead". To bring it back to a habitable haven, he needs to locate a legendary artifact hidden on earth. According to sources, the story plot of the latest "Transformers: The Last Knight " installation would revolve around searching for the Excalibur, keeping it safe from the Decepticons and unleashing its power. The Excalibur is said to be originally owned by the Autobots and, as with the other "Transformer" stories, left on earth for safe keeping. Allegedly, clips from the past on how it was guarded and how it brought war to nations will be included in the plot. Famous personalities on history will also be revealed as guardians of the said artifact. Other problem causing entities, aside from the main antagonist, will be awoken as well.

We will be seeing more of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Drift, Hound, Crosshairs, Hot Rod, and Sqweeks on this time-travel themed "Transformers: The Last Knight" movie . Megatron, Barricade, and Onslaught are just some of the Autobots named. The humans would include Mark Wahlberg (Cade Yeager), Josh Duhamel (Lieutenant Colonel Lennox), Tyrese Gibson (Robert Epps), Stanley Tucci (Joshua Joyce), Isabela Moner (Izabella) and Liam Carigan (King Arthur). Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock, Santiago Cabrera are also part of the cast. Some of the locations for the film includes Cuba, London, Detroit, and Scotland.

The prequel "Transformers: Age of Extinction" grossed nearly $ 1.1B and people are expecting no less for this movie. "Transformers: The Last Knight" will be hitting the big screen on June 23, 2017. A transformer spin-off featuring Bumblebee is set to release on June 8, 2018, while "Transformers 6" is scheduled for a June 28,2019 release.
