After the train wreck that was Transformers: The Last Knight, it looks like the Hasbro Cinematic Universe will be shifting gears a bit when they bring the fan favorite character ‘Bumblebee‘ to the big screen in his own stand alone movie. Today we have the first official synopsis for the film which gives us a look at what we might expect to see. Check out the details below and share your thoughts AFTER THE JUMP.
“On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.”
Bumblebee is produced by Transformers franchise veterans Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Michael Bay, along with executive producers Steven Spielberg, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian. Chris Brigham will also produce. The screenplay is written by Christina Hodson and directed by Travis Knight.
Bumblebee stars Hailee Steinfeld, Pamela Adlon, John Cena, Stephen Schneider, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Jason Drucker, Kenneth Choi, Ricardo Hoyos, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, and Grace Dzienny.
