When one thinks of the Transformers movies, sleeping to them like lullabies would be the last thing to cross their mind. However, the Calm app is an expert at making people fall asleep, and its latest soothing tale is a Transformers history lesson.
The meditation/relaxation app took to Twitter to announce the launch of its new Transformers Sleep Story for kids and adults, with Peter Cullen’s iconic voice narrating the story as Optimus Prime.
‘History of the Transformers’ is just the latest in the app’s extensive library of exclusive stories narrated by various celebrities, from Cillian Murphy to Harry Styles – Calm has something for everyone.
So naturally, it was only a matter of time before the famous franchise collaborated with the app. The “epic tale” is narrated by Optimus Prime as he details the origin of the Autobots and Decepticons.
The description for ‘History of the Transformers’ promises to take listeners “deeper into the MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE themes of the iconic franchise, exploring bravery, leadership, friendship and STEM.”
I am pleased to be bringing TRANSFORMERS to Calm Kids through an imaginative and adventurous bedtime story. I hope through this story that families and kids can get the sleep they need to conquer their days.Cullen
Calm Kids was launched just recently in 2021 in an effort to provide more content aimed at kids and families. The TRANSFORMERS Sleep Story is available exclusively on Calm in the “Sleep” and “Kids” sections.
The app announced the launch of a Transformers-themed Calm Meditation, also narrated by Peter Cullen, later this year.
Cullen first voiced the Autobots leader in 69 episodes of the original series, followed by several spinoffs, animated films, and the Michael Bay films.
The franchise’s upcoming installment, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, has been pushed back to June 9, 2023, and will see the actor return to voice Optimus Prime.
