The first trailer for Bumblebee, the first in a series of planned spinoffs in the Transformers series, was released online on Tuesday.
Bumblebee is directed by Travis Knight, the first man other than Michael Bay to make a Transformers movie. And you can tell. Knight is best known for his animation studio, Laika. And Bumblebee is very much like an animated movie – like a mix between The Iron Giant and a Pixar film.
Bumblebee also stars John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr, and Pamela Adlon. It’s scheduled for a December 21 release.
