Bumblebee will be voiced by Will Friedle. The clip is embedded below.

I'll repeat what I wrote on the YouTube comments section of this video:

Wow, he has a mouth! Finally! :KREMZEEK:

His attitude reminds me greatly of Smokescreen. Doesn't sound like Frank Welker like many fellow Seibertronians had predicted.

Also, I notice the video description says the episode in which Bumblebee makes his big thing says 19 July, rather than 26 July. An error, perhaps? :???:

It's Will Friedle, man! He's AWESOME! :michaelbay:

And it's evocative of Johnny Young Bosch's Bumblebee, making it fitting for that Bee to grow up into this one. :-B

I like Will Friedle but I really don't like how it sounds on Bumblebee, maybe it will grow on me.

Boht Preds have wings and dark colors. So, Vertebreak has to be a mistake.

Could be. :-?

That would be very odd, if one of them is Vertebreak: the Lazerback mold doesn't have wings, while both Predacons shown have wings in their dragon modes.

Well I'll be!!! :shock:

I actually like the sound of Bee!! :???:

quite frankly, I was pessimistic, but geez, now I cant wait to see him in the episode! I like Fowler's reaction too! :grin:

I hope he speaks in the movie too! :APPLAUSE:

This was one TFW mind you, if I would have bought any other predacons other then Predaking and Laserback, I could have probably dismissed this as them being half blind ;)

The worst part is that they already have that covered.

Will Friedle, eh? Interesting choice, but one that I approve of. It's about time Will got to voice a TF.

And how!

I'm hoping he returns to play Bumblebee should Bee ever reappear in Rescue Bots. Not just because of my unconcealed enjoyment of that show, but because Will Friedle and Jason Marsden (voice of Kade Burns) are best friends in real life and, whenever the two work together, the two play off each other quite well. So, I'd be down for some Kade/Bumblebee interaction (possibly in an episode that has Cody feeling left out due to Bee hanging out with Kade, causing tensions to arise between the three and interfering with their missions, with the lesson of the episode being about sharing your friends instead of selfishly keeping them to yourself. and Kade hanging out with Bee would give Cody an opeinging to team up with Heatwave as a callback to how the toyline originally partnered Heatwave with Cody). Plus it would give them an excuse to use the mouth that the Bumblebee toy has in the show. 8)

Finally, I hate r2-d2 bee, not talking was cute in the first movie but I'm over it. I also hope this translates over to TF4

Bee doesn't sound half bad. This may be the only thing I'm excited for with this series finale.
