Sentinel Prime will live long and prosper in Transformers 3
During post-production for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Michael Bay was attempting to get Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek) to voice the title character, The Fallen, but that never came to pass. However, fans can now rejoice as Entertainment Weekly is hearing that Nimoy has signed on to voice Sentinel Prime in Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon. We got our first look at the character during the “announcement trailer” (here), and will apparently play a big role in the film. Sentinel Prime is also the predecessor to Optimus Prime, but it’s unknown how his existence will be explained as it was mentioned that Optimus was the last of the “Primes” in the previous film.
This will be the second time Nimoy has been attached to a Transformers film. The first being the animated film Transformers: The Movie as the voice of Galvatron.
