TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura On What To Expect From The BUMBLEBEE Movie

Transformers: The Last Knight has been unleashed on the world, and now the focus will be shifted to the solo Bumblebee movie. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura recently sat down to discuss the spin-off.

In between Transformers: The Last Knight and the next film in the series, Paramount will be releasing a standalone Bumblebee movie. So far, few details have been released about the film, but what we do know is it will be set in the 80's, it will have a young female lead and Travis Knight will direct.

While doing the press rounds for The Last Knight , series producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura spoke with Collider about what to expect from the movie. "The objective of that movie is to develop more time with less robots, and to go back to 1985 and to go back to the original heritage, if you would, of the Transformers, G1. So, it has a very distinct idea in it, and whatever is going to happen with the chemistry is what's going to happen. But it really is a young female lead opposite of Bumblebee, and I think that Optimus is going to be jealous that Bumblebee has his own movie," said di Bonaventura.

During the set visit for Transformers: The Last Knight, it was revealed that Bumblebee may be the only robot in his solo movie. While being pressed on that di Bonaventura stops just short of confirming this info. "There are less Transformers, dramatically less," He said. "We hired, purposely, Travis Knight who's a very distinct filmmaker. You can't compete with Michael [Bay], you're going to loose. Also, the audience want's something different all the time, let's keep them interested. So, they're going to get a very emotional, complex story. A very tight story, in terms of its location, in terms of its storytelling. In fact it reminds me a little bit of The Iron Giant when I did that movie at Warner Brothers. It just reminds me a little bit of that, where that it feels contained, but it doesn't feel small."

Bumblebee is scheduled to be released on June 8, 2018.
