In Transformers: Age of Extinction, when

Optimus Prime enters the ship, and uses the sword to free Grimlock,

he says something to him in another language. There's a clip on YouTube (spoilers).

I noticed that a similar language is used when

Lockdown commands his wolf transformers to hunt down the ship’s intruder.

Was this language previously used in the Transformers universe, apart from the Michael Bay films?

    Probably Cybertronian. We hear the Decepticons speaking it briefly in the first movie. – System Down Oct 3 '14 at 3:31

  • Could have been cause there was a spoiler in the title, just a guess though. – Jared Oct 9 '14 at 2:30

This could be Cybertronian language. As tfwiki says in Cybertron "conversations originally flowed in odd electronic syllables past strange metallic lips". This is the kind of sound we here in the movie.

    The problem with a wiki link is that literally anyone can write literally anything. There's no proof that this information is correct. – Valorum Nov 15 '14 at 23:27

I think that Optimus Prime was speaking a Native American language. Though I've only heard it in other movies, perhaps Lakota Sioux?

    Welcome to the site and thanks for posting. Your question went into the first answer que for review. As a first time poster I'd recommend you check out other peoples posts to kind of see how it's done. Grammar, sentence structures, etc. matters here. It appears that this is not a problem. To get a correct answer or upvotes it helps to add quotes from the movie, one of the writers, etc. If you had some canonical proof of this then it would be a good answer. However as it stands now it's more appropriate as a comment instead of an answer. Please research, & edit it to make it more authoritative – JMFB Jun 29 '15 at 3:33
