The next Transformers film will hit theaters on June 23, 2017, with two sequels following in 2018 and 2019, respectively, distributor Paramount announced.
2017's untitled Transformers 5 will face Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman at the box office. On June 8, 2018, when the sixth Transformers film premieres, it will be joined by Godzilla 2. Transformers 7 debuts on June 28, 2019, and is currently the only movie occupying that date.
In October, co-producer Hasbro revealed that four more Transformers films were in the works. Paramount did not mention the previously confirmed ninth Transformers movie among its release schedule for the series.
Director Michael Bay announced he'd come back to helm the fifth installment last month; this was despite previously expressing his desire to leave behind the popular franchise. Mark Wahlberg, star of Transformers: Age of Extinction, will also return.
Last year, Paramount announced that the franchise would take a "writers' room"-style approach for future entries. Multiple screenwriters from projects like Iron Man 3 and The Walking Dead are working on the upcoming Transformers movies with the goal of crafting an expanded cinematic universe. That universe will include the live-action movies as well as the toys, comics, games and animated series.
