We've heard a couple of things about the 2018 Bumblebee solo project from Paramount, written by Christina Hodson and directed by Travis Knight, but it seems we finally have confirmation that the movie will indeed be a prequel story of sorts, according to Michael Bay himself. In an interview with MTV, which you can watch below, he states among other things that:
"It'll go a little younger, and it will deal more with his character and it's just about him."


While Bumblebee may not be the sole character in the movie it might be the case that he's the only Cybertronian around. But he may also meet a character we will discover in The Last Knight, if the reports and rumours from the Super Fan footage are to be believed... Let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

Cool cool. Is that Bumblebee figure used in the news picture a posable figure or a statue?

No it will always be the same even without Bay all the other people are still going to be there and the movies will always end up like his.


Bay's influence will be there forever and no whining or complaining will ever change that.

Just keep that Shia Leboof guy away from the 'prequel'. Now there's somebody who's gone round the twist...

Here's some buzzworthy news for a Sunday: Hasbro has applied for a new symbol with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) this past week, to be used with ' Toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms ' and featuring the description: 'The mark consists of A stylized design of a bee.'

With 2018 bringing us the Bumblebee spin-off movie, directed by Travis Knight and written by Christina Hodson, there is sufficient ground to speculate that this symbol may indeed have something to do with the Cybertronian yellow scout. Check it out below, and let us know what you think!

Bumblebee has already had a logo for 10 years it's on his airfreshener in his car mode in the 2007 movie.

Also this would make a great unit patch marking for World War II bee too.

I know this is super picky but it really bugs me that the antennae aren't symmetrical.

Licensing Expo 2017 is currently underway and Paramount is there to showcase their wares. They want to remind you and everyone that there is a Bumblebee solo film coming out next year and got a poster up for the occasion. It is Bumblebee's face with the words "Transformers Universe: Bumblebee" below followed by the release date of June 2018.

The image below was found on Comingsoon.net.

Fellow Seibertronian SnoopDawg has sent us a notification of a new piece up on The Hollywood Reporter - which may be entirely unfounded, so grab your salt packs - about next year's Bumblebee spinoff movie from the Paramount Transformers cinematic universe. Apparently, 20 year old True Grit cast member Hailee Steinfeld is in talks for the movie, as a 'tomboy who also holds a job as a mechanic after school'. Check out the full piece here, and an extract below!

Hailee Steinfeld is in negotiations to star in Paramount's Transformers spinoff Bumblebee.

Travis Knight, who directed the stop-motion movie Kubo and the Two Strings, is helming the project.

Bumblebee is the yellow and black striped Autobot that appears as one of the main characters in the Transformers film series.

Plot details are being kept on the dark side of the moon but it is known that Steinfeld will play a tomboy who also holds a job as a mechanic after school. Christina Hodson (Shut In) wrote the script.

The movie project is the first spinoff in what the studio hopes will be a Transformers Cinematic Universe that will include prequels and offshoots from a line of movies that have generated over $3.7 billion worldwide with the latest one, Transformers: The Last Knight, set to hit theaters June 23.

Huh. They really like their female mechanics. Kubo was good, so I have higher expectations for this one.

Long live Michael bay helming the mainline movies instead of this nonsense already starting in the spin off.

We knew Hailee Steinfeld was in talks to be in the Transformers Spinoff Bumblebee movie but now it is confirmed. Not only that, but the film will be starting to shoot soon. Of course, it has to, since the film is still scheduled to come out next year, but it's good to know things are on track.

Here is what Hailee had to say to News.com Australia:

“I am so excited to know that is the next movie I am working on,” she said as the news broke last week.
“Obviously I’m coming to Australia and when I come back, we start shooting.”

Bee bounces off male characters better. Not looking forward to this and looking at who is writing it should probably not encourage much excitement with this lame person as the lead.
