New ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Trailer: Isabella Moner Builds Bots and Fights Like a GirlEmma Stefansky |
If you’re a Transformers fan and you go see Beauty and the Beast this weekend, you’re in for a treat. If you don‘t go see Beauty and the Beast this weekend, you’re still in for a treat, because we have the new Transformers: The Last Knight trailer right here! Isabella Moner, who plays the new character Izabella in the movie, takes center stage in the new trailer, which is certainly a much less apocalyptic look at the movie than we’ve seen so far.
The new trailer actually looks kinda fun, if still full of dangerous and terrifying giant robots. Izabella lives with her homemade bot Sqweeks (and apparently a few tiny baby Dinobots too?? I’m kinda screaming???) in a world where Transformers seem to be commonplace, for better or for worse. We get a few new looks at our friends Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, as well as their eventual battle royale, but a lot of that King Arthur stuff is absent. It’s mostly Izabella telling us in voiceover how her life has changed with the advent of the robots while shots of her looking cool play over the exposition.
It’s actually an unexpected, but pleasant, surprise that Paramount decided to market the movie to its young girl fans like this. (Needless to say, don’t read the comments on the video.) This, coupled with the new footage shown at the Kids’ Choice Awards, shows that Paramount is making an active choice to market this movie to a younger, and probably more female audience.
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; Bumblebee; an English Lord; and an Oxford Professor.
Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters June 23.
