In Transformers: Robots in Disguise, a Cybertronian prison ship has crashed on Earth, unleashing its Decepticon inmates on Crown City. Bumblebee must learn to fill the shoes of Optimus Prime as team leader in order to recapture the destructive bots before they terrorize the city. His new recruits, the stern Strongarm, rebellious Sideswipe, and bombastic Grimlock, need to function as a well-oiled machine if they are to succeed. Transformers: Robots in Disguise airs on Cartoon Network. Transformers: The Last Knight is slated to premiere in theaters June 23, 2017.
