Featurettes, Peter Cullen, and Interviews with Cast, Director of Rise of the Beasts

Here are a bunch of new videos to help promote Transformers: Rise of the Beasts hitting theaters on June 9. Below are a series of links to cast and producers interviews along with behinds the scenes B-roll. For the interviews, its just cutting together the interview answers together while leaving out the questions as can infer the question as they usually repeat it right at the beginning of the answers which is something anyone that does PR is usually taught to do on day one. The behind the scenes is also just combination of snippets of B-Roll as they filmed the movie on studio sets, on the streets and Machu Picchu.

One minor correction feel need to make about who the real, long term voice actor of Optimus Primal is. Director Steven Caple Jr spoke of Ron Perlman as being the voice of Optimus Primal before. This is true as Perlman voiced the characer for a minor role in the Machinima web series "Transformers: Power of the Primes" in 2018 which was essentially a 70ish minute movie broken up into 10-12 minute parts for the Transformers: Prime Wars Trilogy. However, the true, decades long voice of Optimus Primal from Beast Wars, Beast Machines, and more (while also voicing Optimus Prime in Energon, Cybertron and other media) is veteran character actor Garry Chalk who been everywhere (440 roles listed in IMDB). His contribution to Transformers history should not be forgotten or replaced to promote this movie.

Speaking of legendary voice actors, the first embedded video below is Peter Cullen speaking about returning to his most famous role and working on this new movie. The second video discusses the approach taken to create the score for the movie with Tobe Nwigwe and Jongnic Bontemps. I was not able to embed this so click here for a short clip of Stratosphere transforming and clumsily landing. Thanks to Feris O. for the links.
