'Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising': Watch the trailer here first!


This is the way Transformers Prime ends: Not with a bang, but a whole lot of bangs. And clangs. And crazy battles between noble, metamorphic Autobots and the ancient cybertronian life forms known as Predacons.

You’ll see it all in Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising, the epic 90-minute epilogue to Transformers Prime. The feature film premieres on The Hub Network on Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. ET; four days later, it arrives on Blu-ray and DVD. Get a sneak peek at the action to come below; we promise it’ll be a transformative experience.

Will Friedle talks 'Transformers: Prime' and 'Girl Meets World'

In Transformers: Prime‘s three seasons, brash Autobot scout Bumblebee has never spoken a word — thanks to a nasty encounter with Megatron that left him without a voice box.

But as fans learned last weekend at Comic-Con, Bumblebee will finally get a chance to speak his mind in the cartoon’s upcoming series finale. And as a bonus, it turns out that the Transformer sounds a whole lot like Will Friedle — a prolific voice actor (Batman Beyond, Thundercats, Kim Possible) who’s nevertheless best known as Eric Matthews, Cory’s cute but dim brother on Boy Meets World.

Friedle calls the Transformers: Prime gig a dream job — especially since he didn’t know he was up for this particular part. “They were saying they were auditioning for a new character — I think he was called Blue Streak or something,” the actor told EW. Friedle learned that he had actually been drafted to voice one of the franchise’s most beloved figures about a month later. He calls the realization “one of those 8-year-old moments”: “It kind of reaffirms my childhood every time I think about the character.”
