Michelle Yeoh and Pete Davidson to Join ‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts’

Michelle Yeoh and Pete Davidson will be joining the cast of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, as announced by director Steven Caple Jr. in an Instagram posting today. They will play the characters of Maximal Airazor and Autobot Mirage, respectively. The duo will be joining cast members Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback, whose participation had been announced earlier. The film, which is pegged for a theatrical release on June 9, 2023, is based on Hasbro’s Transformers action figures.

Yeoh is known for her recent performance in Everything Everywhere All at Once while Davidson’s recent credits include Bodies Bodies Bodies. Yeoh also appeared in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Gunpowder Milkshake, Last Christmas, and Crazy Rich Asians. She’s soon to appear in Avatar: The Way of Water and in two Netflix releases: The School for Good and Evil and The Witcher: Blood Origin.

Davidson also starred in Meet Cute in addition to his appearances in Good Mourning, I Want You Back, The Suicide Squad, and The King of Staten Island. He will be seen in the upcoming A24 pic Wizards! as well as The Home, Dumb Money, and Bupkis.

Caple’s posting was accompanied by some video footage of the pair engaged in recording sessions for Rise of the Beasts, an action thriller that focuses on the clashes between the Maximals and the Terrorcons as they do battle with the Autobots and the Decepticons. In the new film, Airazor is one of the Maximals and Mirage is one of the Autobots. The late actor Francesco Quinn played Mirage in the 2011 film Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

The producers of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts include Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Michael Bay, Mark Vahradian, Duncan Henderson, and Don Murphy. The executive producers include Hasbro’s Entertainment One in tandem with the Skydance and New Republic Pictures, listed as co-financiers.
