Michael Bay Reveals Bumblebee’s New Look in ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’
It looks like Bumblebee is getting a bit of a makeover for the new Transformers sequel — not that it’s the first time. The friendly Autobot capable of stealthily upgrading his wheels has traded in his 2014 Camaro for a newer model, though he’s still sporting his signature colors, of course. Michael Bay revealed Bumblebee’s new look over the weekend, and if you’re a fan of cars — or of Transformers — then you’ll probably want to take a look.
Bay took to Twitter to show off Bumblebee’s new vehicle design for Transformers: The Last Knight, a 2016 Camaro custom concept job:
That’s not the only new addition to Transformers: The Last Knight, as actual knight Sir Anthony Hopkins recently joined the cast, which also features Mark Wahlberg reprising his role as Cade Yeager from Age of Extinction. Josh Duhamel’s Lt. Colonel William Lennox, last seen in Dark of the Moon, is also returning, along with newcomers Isabela Moner and comedian Jerrod Carmichael.
Plot details have yet to be revealed, but the sequel is based on a screenplay by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man) with Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down), with Bay returning to direct — despite his insistence that he was done with the franchise. As for the villain, Megatron was recently confirmed to return because, well, Megatron is always the villain. Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters on June 23, 2017.
