Transformers One Trailer: Unveiling Optimus Prime and Megatron’s Untold Friendship


Buckle up, because the official trailer for Transformers One has landed, bringing the first fully-animated Transformers movie to the big screen in nearly four decades! This exciting new trailer offers a glimpse into the past, revealing the bond between Optimus Prime and Megatron before their bitter rivalry.

Get ready to meet Orion Pax (voiced by Chris Hemsworth) and D-16 (Brian Tyree Henry), the pre-war versions of Optimus Prime and Megatron respectively. The trailer opens with a playful banter between the two, showcasing their camaraderie before they became sworn enemies. We’re also introduced to B-127 (voiced by Keegan-Michael Key), who hasn’t yet earned his iconic Bumblebee nickname, and Elita-One (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). Director Josh Cooley (known for his work on Inside Out and Toy Story 4) has described the film as an “origin story” for the beloved Transformers, delving into the events that ultimately fractured their once-unified world.

In an interview with IGN, Cooley offered a cryptic tease about the plot’s driving force, hinting at “something happening on their planet (Cybertron) that they both have two different reactions to.” The trailer itself provides a subtle glimpse of this brewing conflict. We hear Orion Pax ask D-16, “Don’t you want to see what’s out there?” only to be met with a firm response: “There’s a reason no one goes to the surface.”

Despite their disagreement, Orion Pax and D-16 venture to the surface together, with the trailer showcasing a sense of awe on the faces of all four characters. Lighthearted moments follow as the group explores their newfound surroundings and discovers their abilities to transform for the first time. The trailer offers a few chuckles as their initial attempts aren’t exactly smooth, but their excitement about their powers is undeniable.

The trailer’s launch itself was a unique event. The footage was revealed from a spacecraft soaring a staggering 125,000 feet above Earth, adding a touch of real-world spectacle to the unveiling. This innovative approach mirrors the excitement surrounding the film’s return to its animated roots, a stark contrast to the live-action dominance of recent years.

Mark your calendars, because Transformers One is set to hit theaters on September 13th. Get ready to witness the rise of two iconic leaders, the forging of unlikely friendships, and the events that ultimately set them on a collision course!
