Bumblebee comes to life

Great news Transformer fans. The first image from Bumblebee has arrived.  This time we see Bumblebee back as we remember him from the 1980s.  A VW Beetle and not the Chevrolet Camaro that we have seen in the Michael Bay directed Transformer films.

The film is actually a stand alone film. Like Rogue One was for Star Wars. It’s also a prequel to the 2007 film, Transformers.  WE would expect to hear what happened to his voice as well as other things that happened before the first movie.

On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie, 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.
