Fellow Seibertronian Stuartmaximus has found a youtube video from CineMovie which has Peter Cullen confirming that you will hear his voice in the upcoming Bumblebee Live Action film. He is short and to the point with his "yes" as you can see below.
We do not know if that means the film will begin in current times and be told as an older tale or if we will hear the voice through narration or even if Peter Cullen will be voicing Optimus Prime at all, though it is what everyone would assume.

I can see this as a cameo from when he contacts Bee, a flashback from a battle on Cybertron, or Cullen mimics Stan Lee.

Always thought that Prime would have a small cameo in this film.

They don't even need to show him it could probably be just his voice like the narrations from the first few films.

Maybe he could be voicing Ironhide like in the G1 cartoon?

But Ironhide in the movies doesn't sound like G1 Ironhide.

Yes, but the point here is not a "it's not like muh G1" general statement, it's saying that Movie Ironhide not sounding like G1 Ironhide is evidence against Peter Cullen voicing Movie Ironhide like G1 Ironhide.

I doubt that Cullen would voice Ironhide since we have Jess Harnell for that and the big guy doesn't land on Earth until 2007.

Unless that one art piece in TLK retcons Ironhide as having been on Earth in the 19th Century.

Maybe Optimus is already on earth then leaves at some point.

My guess would be opening & ending narration possibly a flashback or transmission giving bee new orders

Maybe people got used to him to voice Optimus,but the fact that Peter Cullen still returns to the role should not be taken for granted.

The transformers community can get very ungrateful and will always ask for more. its just a thing to expect now.

We have another small update from the set of Transformers Universe: Bumblebee, as fellow Seibertronian Scottimus Prime has pointed us towards the Instagram account of lead actor Hailee Steinfeld and the latest image posted - featuring a similar wheel and dashboard layout for Bumblebee as we first saw him in the 2007 live action movie! Check it out below.

Funny seeing that again, when I saw the first TF film as a wee little boy, I always thought that pressing the Autobot insignia would cause Bumblebee to transform. Maybe it was because it looked like a separate piece when Sam lightly pressed it.

It was a separate piece, yes. It was the button for the car's horn.

We have some more news from the current location of Transformers Universe: Bumblebee before moving to Long Beach next week, featuring some more agent-looking types - rumoured to be part of Sector 7 as previously seen in the news - Jorge Lendeborg Jr, Hailee Steinfeld, and John Cena (also via Just Jared and a number of Instagram and Twitter accounts) revealing the latter to be part of the S7 crew, and his character's name to be Burns. A reference to Rescue Bots, perhaps? Or just a coincidence? Join the discussion in the Energon Pub for more!

with the whole Burns thing, it wouldn't be the first time that the live action films have shoehorned references from the various transformers shows/properties ect in there, so it comes as no surprise really

I wonder who the grumpy looking kid in the metal band shirt is supposed to be.

But we all know who Burns is...

Yeah I had to...sorry not sorry
