When we first met Bumblebee in the Transformers movies he was as Chevy muscle car, a modern, macho upgrade from his toy and cartoon origins. Chevy’s are great and all, but they’ve got nothing on a Volkswagen beetle. Luckily Bumblebee will get to return to his original bug form from the Transformers toys and cartoons in his upcoming solo movie, and today brings our first look.
Just a few weeks after Transformers: The Last Knight rolled into theaters, Paramount is getting that Bumblebee prequel on the fast track. Today we got the news of a rumored mysterious working title, an official title (complete with colon, like all of today’s young adult franchises), and an extremely soon production start date. Like, very soon. Like, within a couple of weeks from now.
