WATCH: Discover Bumblebee's origins in 'Transformers' spin-off
MANILA, Philippines – The new Transformers spin-off is here and it’s giving us a look into a certain famous yellow autobot’s origins.
In the first trailer that was released for Bumblebee, Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) finds an old VW bug only to discover that it’s not what it seems.
The bug transforms in her garage into the eponymous Bumblebee, scared and unable to speak. The two share a moment, before the video above cuts to scenes of their action-packed adventures together.
Towards the end of the 150-second video, we even see how Bumblebee learned to communicate through his radio – with Charlie’s help.
Bumblebee was produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Michael Bay and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Brian Goldner, Mark Vahradian, and Chris Brigham. It was directed by Travis Knight.
Bumblebee will be in Philippine theaters in January 2019. – Rappler.com
