Beast Wars: Transformers (Beasties: Transformers) debuted in 1996 and ended on March 7, 1999. The series served as the flagship of the Transformers: Beast Wars franchise. The series featured the Maximals and Predacons, descendants of the Autobots and Decepticons respectively, and was set in the future of the “original” Transformers continuity; however, it was eventually revealed that they had traveled back in time before the series began and were actually on a prehistoric Earth some time in between when Optimus Prime and Megatron first crash-landed on Earth and the time when they awoke. Beast Wars was set up as a sequel to the first Transformers series.
Bumblebee, the sixth installment in the Transformers series was released in 2018. The film was the lowest-grossing installment of the franchise with $468M worldwide.
