When fans first saw that Dinobots were going to be in Transformers: Age of Extinction the excitement grew after the first trailer. But after Age of Extinction was released fans were disappointed by the lack of Dinobots and the overall bad story. The trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight has just came out and so far the 5th film in the franchise is looking promising. And producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura says Grimlock will indeed return for the new movie along with more Dinobots:
“I think everybody wanted to see more Dinobots, including ourselves, you know what I mean? We all were like, “God, we wish we could have found a way in that story to include them more.” So that was one of the hopes/priorities going into this, was to try to find a way to bring them back into the stories.
You’re going to see Grimlock again. So that, to me, is one of the characters in the last movie that didn’t get enough screen time.”
It also seems like Grimlock will be more than just a mindless Transformer.
“He has a personality this time, for sure. A little more personality, that’s for sure.”
