The Transformers franchise, which brings the popular action figures to life, has become one of the most beloved action adventure films of our generation. In the seventh installment in the series, director Steven Caple Jr. sets a unique vision for the Autobots' next adventure alongside actor Anthony Ramos. Ramos stars in Transformers: Rise of the Beasts as Noah Diaz, a veteran and technological expert enlisted to help the Transformers along with Elena and Reek played by Dominique Fishback and Tobe Nwigwe.

The two chatted with EBONY correspondent Jenn Rodriguez about working on Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and how they're making history with this installment of the saga.

"I'm the first Black person in the franchise to direct any of the Transformers movies with the first Puerto Rican lead and Dominique as the first Black co-lead. Wow, as I'm processing everything, it's a legendary moment," said Caple Jr. proudly.
