Empire Magazine has revealed the first official look at the upcoming Transformers spin-off film, which will follow the beloved and fan-favourite Autobot, Bumblebee.
The image gives us our first look at the films human star Hailee Steinfeld, as she stands alongside Bumblebee. Of course, the classic Autobot is also featured in the image, although he appears different than many might expect. Instead of the slick yellow Camaro disguise, Bumblebee has taken the form of a rusted Volkswagen Beetle.
Check out the image below:
The Bumblebee spin-off is being directed by Travis Knight (Kubo And The Two Strings), who recently sat down with Empire to discuss the film.
“I wanted to approach this massive, expansive franchise and really focus in on a tiny corner of the canvas. Everything I’ve tried to do at Laika, searching for an artful blend of darkness and light, intensity and warmth, humour and heart, I wanted to bring to the Transformers franchise.”
Bumblebee is slated to hit theatres on December 21, 2018.
