/Film boss Peter Sciretta was lucky enough to get an early preview of Universal Studios Hollywood’s new Transformers The Ride 3D last month, but for the rest of us, this weekend marks the long-awaited debut of the attraction. General Glenn Morshower (played by Glenn Morshower) led the grand opening ceremony, which doubled as a set-up for the premise of the ride. Michael Bay, who directed the first three films and served as “creative consultant” on the ride, was not present, but sent in a greeting via satellite.
But the real stars of the show were Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, who showed up in car form at the ceremony after having appeared in robot form on the red carpet. Megatron made his presence known as well, “derailing” the proceedings by announcing his intention to steal the AllSpark back. Video footage and photos from the event lie after the jump — along with info on a new Universal Studios potentially being developed in South Korea.
