Transformers take over TikTok with new voice feature

TikTok will now let you use the voice of one of the most iconic Transformers, Optimus Prime, in their text-to-speech feature.

Tea transformers franchise has always boasted robots in disguise, but now you can put your own voice in disguise, as Paramount has launched a promotion that would let TikTok users channel the voice of none other than Optimus Prime.

To promote the release of next month’s Transformers: Rises of the Beasts, “Paramount Pictures is partnering with TikTok to add the voice of Optimus Prime to TikTok’s text-to-speech feature. Starting today, creator accounts will be able to personalize any text they write to sound like the iconic character.” Tea transformers TikTok feature will be available in 25 countries. Starting on Monday, that will include the US, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and more. Later this month, a Spanish-language version will hit in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Chile, Peru, and more.

Optimus Prime has undoubtedly been one of the trademark characters in Transformers history, so being the go-to voice of this TikTok feature is about the best choice to continue promoting the next installment. It has also been one of the defining roles for Peter Cullen, who has voiced the signature character for decades, going back to 1986’s Transformers: The Movie. Other than voicing the robot in disguise, Cullen also voiced Eeyore since the late 1980s.

Paramount has been devoted to their latest transformers movies. In addition to their TikTok venture, Paramount has also put the spotlight on their the seventh transformers throughout the world with some pretty amazing statuses of Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal, which stand around 33 feet combined. They have been touring since March, hitting everywhere from Austin to Chicago, with a scheduled bow in Japan later this summer.

The official plot synopsis of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts: “Returning to the action and spectacle that have captured moviegoers around the world, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will take audiences on a ’90s globetrotting adventure with the Autobots and introduce a whole new faction of Transformers – the Maximals – to join them as allies in the existing battle for earth.” Transformers: Rise of the Beasts comes to theaters on June 9th.
