First Look at Bumblebee as a VW Bug in Upcoming BUMBLEBEE Movie
A new photo from the set of director Travis Knight's Bumblebee movie has surfaced online. It gives us our first look at Bumblebee as an old-school VW bug. I love that we get to see Bumblebee in his original form this time around.
I'm really hoping that this movie will actually tell a decent story that Transformers fans will enjoy. I trust that Knight will give us something that is at least charming and enjoyable. Here's what we know about the plot so far:
The story is set in the year 1987, where Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.
The movie also has a solid cast that includes Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg, Jason Drucker, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, Ricardo Hoyos and Gracie Dzienny.
I'm not really the biggest fan of the Transformers franchise, but that doesn't mean we can't see a great movie come from it. Hopefully, this Bumblebee movie will give us that.
