Bumblebee Spin-Off Movie Officially Confirmed

Hasbro has officially confirmed that the Transformers sequel which is scheduled to open in theaters on June 8, 2018, is in fact the long-rumored Bumblebee spin-off movie. That means that the fan-favorite Autobot will be going up against Legendary’s currently untitled Godzilla sequel, which also opens the same day.

During a recent conference call for Toy Fair, Hasbro’s Tom Warner provided the following update regarding the recently-announced Transformers follow-ups:

“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.”
