Names like Peter Dinklage and John DiMaggio are well known among scifi/fantasy fans of course. Dinklage is best known for his role as Tyrion Lannister in HBO's Game of Thrones from 2011 to 2019. DiMaggio is perhaps best known for voicing Bender on the long running scifi comedy Futurama. Long time Transformers fans will take special note of David Sobolov's casting. Sobolov played the Maximal Depth Charge in the original Beast Wars series so it is fitting that he is returning to voice a Maximal in this movie!

Previously revealed cast members include Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback, Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime), Ron Perlman (Optimus Primal), Michelle Yeoh (Airazor), and Pete Davidson (Mirage).
