Robots in Disguise, also known by fans as Transformers: Robots in Disguise is a science-fiction/action film based on the Transformers toy line, and is a reboot/remake to the Transformers movie franchise, will premiere at Summer (insert year here), and released by Warner Bros. Pictures, MGM, Bad Robot Productions, and Hasbro. The Autobots, Decepticons, human characters, settings, backstory, etc. will be slightly different. With four films, each film will be released yearly.


When archaelologists unearth an ancient alien warship full of dormant Autobots and Decepticons, government attention was sure to be reached. However, few by few, the ship's captives keep disappearing day by day, stirring confusion and chaos. It is said that the warring robots were searching for one thing: the Warp Key! The Warp Key is an ancient relic that can open up the Space Bridge. And Megatron wants that key to unleash his armada on any planet he wishes to conquer, and his current target even today is Earth! So, in a Nevada countryside, farm boy Jarrod and younger sister Tori find the massive Warp Key in their farmland, take it home without their parents recognizing, and unwittingly creating chaos when various creatures from a few different dimensions pop out. When they send them back, little do the kids know that someone unworldly is watching over them. Is it the Heroic Autobots or the Evil Decepticons watching them? With Megatron absent, will anyone avoid Starscream getting his hands on the Warp Key? How will the world be safe when the two warring robot groups make Earth their final battleground?
