Ron Perlman and Mark Hamill have joined the cast for the upcoming “Transformers: Power of the Primes,” the upcoming animated web series from Machinima and Hasbro.
Currently scheduled to launch in the second quarter of this year, ‘Power of the Primes’ will close out the trilogy that launched in August 2016 with “Transformers: Combiner Wars” and continued last year with “Transformers: Titans Return”.
Hamill will play Megatronus, the first Decepticon, exiled from Cybertron after murdering one of the other original Thirteen Primes. Perlman plays Optimus Primal. Mikey Way, Jamie King, Gregg Berger and WWE’s Samoa Joe also join the cast for the new season.
Wil Wheaton, Judd Nelson and Kari Wahlgren are returning to voice their characters from previous outings, and once again the new series will be overseen by executive producer F.J. DeSanto, and written by Adam Beechen.
