We’ve already seen hints that ‘Transformers: The Last Knight‘ would show us that the Transformers have a much more integrated history with humanity and the fifth film in the franchise is now slated to tell us their secret history. The mythology has been created as a way to expand the movie into a jumping point in their shared universe which will have at least 14 films at this time. In fact, today we have some footage that will give a hint at what is to come from rethinking the past of the Autobots and Decepticons.

Oh, and did I mention that it is also narrated by Anthony Hopkins? You can check it out right here:

This new history shows that the Transformers have been in every major conflict in humanity’s history and this has been kept a secret, until now. Sir Anthony Hopkins plays Sir Edmund Burton, and he is a man that knows all of the secrets. It will be interesting to see how they explain people not noticing giant robots fighting alongside them for the past 1,000 years and I hope that their justification here adds up.

Are you looking forward to a more extensive history of Transformers on Earth or do you feel that this is too crazy of a concept for the franchise to pull off? Share your thoughts below!


The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).
