Nickelodeon, Paramount+ and Entertainment One (eOne) brought Transformers: EarthSpark to Comic-Con 2022, where those in the audience learned who will be voicing their favorite Autobots and Decepticons, as well as viewing new footage from the animated series. The San Diego Comic-Con panel brought the three companies together, along with Hasbro, to give fans more details on this new iteration of the Robots in Disguise. Live-action and voice-acting veterans can be found in Transformers: EarthSpark's voice cast, with big names voicing the Autobot leader Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. On hand for the panel were Danny Pudi (Bumblebee), Kathreen Khavari (Twitch), Zeno Robinson (Thrash), co-executive producer Dale Malinowski and executive producer Ant Ward. Mike Cecchini (Editor-in-Chief, Den of Geek) moderated the panel.
Transformers: EarthSpark is a 26-episode animated series that introduces a new generation of Transformers robots — the first Transformers robots to be born on Earth — and together with the human family who welcomes them in and cares for them, they'll redefine what it means to be a family. It debuts exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S. in November, and on Paramount+ and select Nickelodeon channels internationally.
