Santiago Cabrera Transformers 5 filming London and Stonehenge
Santiago Cabrera Transformers 5: The Last Knight filming London and Stonehenge. More filming has been happening all over the UK, including location shoots at Rievaulx Abbey, Alnwick Castle, Bamburgh Castle, and sites in Wales. Also, filming has occurred in Newcastle, Oxford, Tower Bridge, streets around the financial district, the London Eye and yes, even at the famous Stonehenge monument in Wiltshire. A ‘fake’ Stonehenge was also built near the real monument. The fake site was used for shooting scenes with explosions – nothing destructive would be allowed near the real Stonehenge! Several cast members posted pictures and videos from Stonehenge…

Santiago returned to social media after a break with this tweet from a location shoot, and a new Instagram post. Production continued near the replica Stonehenge. in the photo below and at the real Stonehenge the next day. It has not been revealed what plot points bring the Transformers to the mythical site of huge stones near Salisbury, England but speculation has suggested that the movie storyline involves King Arthur and his Knights in a time-travel situation. The movie poster shows a large (perhaps Excalibur) ancient “sword” – so who knows?

Additions to the cast include Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock, Santiago Cabrera and Anthony Hopkins.
The plot is rumoured to tie into Arthurian legend. Optimus Prime returns to his his home planet Cybertron to find it a wasteland. He realises that he is to blame for the destruction and learns that he can restore his world with a mysterious artifact. There is speculation that the legendary sword Excalibur might be the artifact in question which seems reasonable, given that a sword features in the logo for the new movie….
