Transformers: The Last Knight introduces new Autobots

Last week we got confirmation that Hot Rod will finally be brought to life in the Transformers movie franchise, and he won't be the only new addition to the Autobot roster. In addition to returning bots Drift and Crosshairs, the Transformers Twitter account unveiled an image of Wall-E lookalike Sqweeks, who is described as having a "small frame" but "big heart".

I like that Michael Bay is bringing in characters fans will appreciate, but I'm a little wary of how he'll utilise them. The Dinobots are one of the best things in the Transformers franchise, and they got about 10 minutes of screen time in Age of Extinction. Here's hoping Sqweeks and co get more time to shine this time round. 

Directed by Michael Bay and starring Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Anthony Hopkins, and Peter Cullen, Transformers: The Last Knight will roll into cinemas on June 23, 2017.
