Bumblebee no doubt is the most loved character from the Transformers franchise and the announcement of a standalone movie was in fact a welcome one.
It seems like the movie looks to go back to the franchise's roots to remind people why they fell in love with the Transformers in the first place.
I cant wait to see Bublebee in his new avatar i mean even way before Bumblebee cruised around as a souped-up Chevrolet Camaro, here the loyal Autobot hero took the form of a classic Volkswagen Beetle.
This prequel movie looks set to be considerably different in tone, too, with the franchise’s first female lead character; Pitch Perfect star Hailee Steinfeld is set to share the silver screen with the Autobot Bug.
Also there’s a new actor coming to the “Transformers” world…and his name is John Cena and it has certainly got the excitement levels soaring already.
The new approach is causing a buzz on social media
The Bumblebee Trailer has heart, comedy, humanity and a sense of awe. This maybe the cinematic universe I didn’t know I needed. Add in its from the director of #KuboAndTheTwoStrings and I am IN! #BumblebeeMovie #Bumblebee #Transformers https://t.co/KGoeup2bJ7 via @YouTube— Joe Vallero (@jvallero3) June 6, 2018
I can’t believe I’m about to say this. #Bumblebee actually looks good, which I know isn’t much when you compare it to the rest of the Transformers movie.— jason76z (@jason76z) June 6, 2018
A new era of visual clarity and women as rounded characters. Can’t really argue with at— Shane Dobbie (@fortunesfool73) June 5, 2018
