Bumblebee Is Getting His Own 'Transformers' Spinoff Movie
Published Feb 12, 2016Since audiences refuse to stop going to them despite their inherent awfulness, we're currently plagued with an onslaught of Transformers movies. Next year, there will be a fifth Transformers movie, with two more to follow. Thankfully, they're flipping the script a little — one of the films will be dedicated to Bumblebee.
The yellow dude who communicates exclusively via radio excerpts will be the main focus of the sixth Transformers movie. The news was revealed by Hasbro leader Tom Warner during a conference call for Toy Fair.
Here's Warner's relevant statement [via Coming Soon]:
This summer we worked closely with a talented team of A-list screenwriters to map out the future of the Transformers cinematic universe, and as Brian announced earlier, things kick off in a major way in 2017 with the release of Transformers 5 in June. And we're working on a spin-off movie centered around Bumblebee for 2018 and the next chapter for 2019.
The Bumblebee movie is slated for release on June 8, 2018. And if you all go see it, we'll probably get another 10 or so Transformers movies after that.
