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

During a Comic-Con 2022 panel, the voice talent lineup was revealed on eOne’s upcoming original animated show; the 26-episode series is set to debut this fall.

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

On hand at 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-in-Chief, 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 who welcomes them in and cares for them, they'll redefine what it means to be a family.

In November, Transformers: EarthSpark debuts in the U.S. on Paramount+ and on select Nickelodeon channels internationally. The new series is the latest entry to the global Transformers franchise.

Check out the first look clip:

The new voice cast lineup is:

  • Sydney Mikayla (Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts): “Robby Malto,” a smart 13-year-old boy with an abundance of moxie and charisma.
  • Zion Broadnax (Day Shift) “Morgan ‘Mo’ Malto” is Robby’s 9-year-old younger sister.
  • Benny Latham: “Dot Malto” is the mother to Robby and Mo, and surrogate mother to the Malto-bots, and wife to Alex.
  • Jon Jon Briones (Ratched): “Alex Malto” is the father to Robby and Mo, surrogate father to the Malto-bots, and husband to Dot.
  • Kathreen Khavari (Dead End: Paranormal Park): “Twitch Malto” is an Earth-born Terran born out of primordial sludge in the cave waters of Witwicky, Pennsylvania, like her brother Thrash.
  • Zeno Robinson (Big City Greens): “Thrash Malto” is an Earth-born male Terran and a cheeky wild child.
  • Danny Pudi (Community): “Bumblebee,” a fun-loving veteran Autobot who serves as a mentor to the Terrans as they learn what it takes to be Transformers robots.
  • Alan Tudyk (Resident Alien): “Optimus Prime,” is a courageous Autobot leader who has forged a new alliance with humans.
  • Rory McCann (Game of Thrones): “Megatron,” is the father of the Decepticon faticon who believes in making any sacrifice 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.

Hasbro, maker of the Transformers: EarthSpark toyline, and a production partner on the animated series, also participated in the panel presentation.
