Starring Hailee Steinfeld as Charlie, Paramount launched the trailer with the touch of nostalgic VW beetle to serve as new Bumblebee when she tries to repair the car where it all started with the eye. The idea is to capture the audience with 80s feel. Bumblebee hugging Charlie surely bestows emotional touch to the film.
Steinfeld’s human costar John Cena who plays a member of the secret government agency Sector 7, also makes a brief appearance in the Bumblebee teaser.
Directed by Travis Knight who is best known for Kubo and the Two Strings and the script is written by Christina Hodson. Some additional members include Peter Cullen, Kenneth Choi, Pamela Adlon, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., and Martin Short. This is the first franchise of Transformers which Michael Bay won’t be directing.
Bumblebee is set to release this Christmas.
