In the film, the Cybertonian Goddess of Life, Quintessa, uses her power to transform Optimus Prime into Nemesis Prime. Prime’s new directive is to lead her to Earth and stop all in her way, which pits him against his fellow Autobots. However, Quintessa isn’t all that she seems.
During an interview with Comicbook.com, Transformers: The Last Knight producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura opened up about the post-credit twist and what it means for future franchise installments.
“You never know, that’s part of what the discovery is gonna be. But actually, if you look at the mythology, the mythology of The Quintessa is that she very well and was probably human. So when you go back in time and go through that 6 billion years of mythology, there’s certainly a current of thought within it that says she was a human character and perhaps was actually the first one who built the Transformers. So ironically, if that’s accurate, then humans built Transformers.”
If Quintessa was originally human and was the one who created the Transformers, what does that mean for human-Transformers relations? And how does that fit into the timeline? If Transformers were around during the age of dinosaurs, where did Quintessa come from? Looks like Transformers 6 will have a lot of explaining to do.
“The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).
There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.”
Transformers: The Last Knight is now playing.
