This time around, Bumblebee's vehicle mode is an original Volkswagen Beetle, just like in the cartoons. And it's also apparent from this clip that the unlikely duo will quickly become the best of friends, and will eventually have to do battle with at least one airborne Decepticon - as well as military forces led by John Cena. "Kubo and the Two Strings" helmer Travis Knight is helming the spinoff, which is odd given that "Kubo" was quite good and this is a "Transformers" movie.
Set twenty years before the events of the first film, in 1987, Bumblebee: The Movie follows the autobot - a sentient mechanical self-configuring robotic lifeform - as he takes refuge in a small California beach town junkyard before meeting Charlie.
In the trailer, he is discovered by teenager Charlie, played by Hailee Steinfeld, who he forms a bond with.
Simply called Bumblebee, the movie centered around kids' favorite Transformer will be launched in cinemas this Christmas, starring Hailee Steinfeld as the main character, Martin Short as something's voice and Ford's most loathed customer, John Cena, apparently as the bad guy.
