Chicago fans can visit the Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Globe Statue Tour as the Autobots are at the Navy Pier entrance through May 26.
The Transformers on display include two Autobots (Optimus Prime and Mirage) and a Maximal (Optimus Primal). Previous US stops also included Las Vegas and Austin, TX, where they were on display in connection with this year’s SXSW Film and TV Festival. It is surprising, however, the Bumblebee is not among the current Autobots included on the Global Statue Tour.
Depending on the time of day, Navy Pier could have a crowd. If you are looking to visit Navy Pier, I would recommend visiting during an off-peak hour. If you live out of town, there is currently road construction on Lake Shore Drive. Please check the construction schedule and plan your trip accordingly.
Additional cities on the tour also include:
- London, UK: May 29 – June 9
- Mexico City, Mexico: May 24 – June 8
- New York, NY: June 2-8
- Seoul, South Korea: Early June
- Tokyo, Japan: Early August
Steven Caple Jr. directs the upcoming Transformers: Rise of the Beast from a screenplay written by Joby Harold and Darnell Metayer & Josh Peters and Erich Hoeber & Jon Hoeber. Harold also wrote the story.
