Paramount+ Teases First Look and Cast of Animated ‘Transformers: EarthSpark’

Last week at San Diego Comic-con, Nickelodeon, Paramount+ and Entertainment One (eOne) hosted a special panel that revealed the voice actors for the upcoming Paramount+ original animated series, Transformers: EarthSpark. Fans were also treated to a debut clip which you can watch below.

Attending the event were voice cast members Danny Pudi (Bumblebee), Kathreen Khavari (Twitch), Zeno Robinson (Thrash), co-executive producer Dale Malinowski and executive producer Ant Ward. Mike Cecchini (Editor, Den of Geek) moderated the panel.

The all-new 3D CGI animated series (26 episodes) introduces a new generation of Transformers robots – the first Transformers robots to be born on Earth – and together with the human family that welcomes them and cares for them, they will redefine what it means to be a family.

In November, Transformers: EarthSpark debuts in the United States on Paramount+ and select Nickelodeon channels internationally. The new series is the latest entry into the world Transformers franchise.

Check out the first look clip:

The new voice range is:

  • Sidney Mikayla (Kipo and the Age of Wonders): “Robby Malto”, a smart 13-year-old boy with an abundance of moxie and charisma.
  • Sion Broadnax (Day shift) “Morgan ‘Mo’ Malto” is Robby’s 9-year-old younger sister.
  • Benny Latham: “Dot Malto” is Robby and Mo’s mother, and surrogate for the Malto-bots, and wife of Alex.
  • Jon Jon Briones (Ratched): “Alex Malto” is Robby and Mo’s father, the surrogate father of the Malto-bots and husband of Dot.
  • Catherine Khavari (Impasse: paranormal park): “Twitch Malto” is an Earthling born from the primordial mud in the waters of Witwicky Cave, Pennsylvania, like her brother Thrash.
  • Zeno Robinson (Big City Greens): “Thrash Malto” is an Earth-born male Terran and a cheeky wild child.
  • Dany Pudi (Community): “Bumblebee”, a fun veteran Autobot who serves as a mentor to Earthlings as they learn what it takes to be Transformers robots.
  • Alan Tudyk (Foreign resident): “Optimus Prime” is a brave Autobot leader who has forged a new alliance with the humans.
  • Rory McCann (game of thrones): “Megatron” is the father of the Decepticon faticon who believes in the importance of making whatever sacrifices are necessary for the survival of Cybertronian civilization.
  • Cissy Jones (The owl house): “Elita-1” is the physically gifted and confident second-in-command of the Autobots.
  • Diedrich Bader (better things): “Mandroid”, the villain, was a scientist-soldier in the war, jaded and ultimately, very anti-Cybertronian.
