Comic-Con: Paramount Animation and Hasbro to Bring Chris Hemsworth and ‘Transformers One’ to Hall H

Paramount Animation and Hasbro Entertainment are bringing “Transformers One” to San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H, the studio announced Tuesday.

The panel discussion and exclusive footage presentation from the movie will also have Chris Hemsworth, Brian Tyree Henry and Keegan-Michael Key, along with director Josh Cooley and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura in attendance. The film is the fist animated “Transformers” movie in nearly 40 years.

The Hall H panel will kick off the convention on Thursday, July 25, at 11:45 a.m. PT. Fans who attend the panel will receive an exclusive poster.

Paramount was the only motion picture studio to host a panel last year with “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.”

The animated movie recently screened at this year’s Annecy International Animation Film Festival. TheWrap’s Drew Taylor wrote: “It is exactly what it has been described as — an origin story for how two young robots went from being besties to mortal enemies, ultimately known as Optimus Prime and Megatron. The animation style previewed in the early trailer; a kind of painterly, 1980s lunchbox aesthetic, is very much present in the final film — all vibrant colors and shiny surfaces.”

Additional cast includes Scarlett Johansson, Steve Buscemi, Laurence Fishburne and Jon Hamm.

“Transformers One” will open in theaters on Sept. 20.

Deadline first reported the news.
