The opening scene description of Transformers The Last Knight has been revealed and it is reportedly epic with a massive battle set in the medieval time. The film is set to unfold the fate of Optimus Prime whose lifeless body was last seen drifting in space.

Paramount Picture invited a selected few to watch the IMAX preview of the film, which includes the opening scene. Flickering Myth reveals that the fifth sequel of the Michael Bay-directed film begins with a flashback featuring a massive medieval battle between King Arthur and his knights and an anonymous group which seeks a magician named Merlyn.

The scene continues when Merlyn discovers a staff with Transformer markings on it. The exclusive preview then jumps to show Optimus Primewho appears dead but is simply floating in the space and seeking redemption from his creators. The scene then moves to show a bunch of children in a football ground as they discover a still alive transformer but later they were attacked by the security bots.

Isabella Moner's Izabela comes to their rescue and helps them escape death. Soon Bumblebee and Mark Wahlberg's Cade helps them run away from the place. The scene description by the website claims that Cade will play a key role in eliminating the threat that has almost destroyed the earth.

Anthony Hopkins' character, Sir Edmund Burton, will inform Cade that according to an ancient prophecy he is the chosen one, the last Knight who can bring Earth back to life. Hopkins' character gives a Transformer medallion to Cade which instantly attaches itself to his arm.

Bay is yet to reveal whether Optimus is the hero or the villain of the film as the trailers of the fifth sequel are showing him only in the negative light. In the previous teaser, the Autobot leader was seen fighting Bumblebee while a defenceless Cade lies helplessly on the ground.

Transformers: The Last Knight releases in theatres on 23 June 2017.
