The upcoming standalone Bumblebee spinoff of the ever-popular Transformers franchise is surprisingly intriguing. For one, this will be the first film within the series that will not have Michael Bay in the director’s chair. Instead, Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight will be bringing this new Bumblebee adventure to life.

While not much is known in terms of plot details for Bumblebee, Michael Bay has said that the film will be a prequel. The script for Bumblebee has been penned by Christina Hodson.
Here’s the synopsis for Transformers: The Last Knight.
The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).
There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
Directed by Michael Bay and starring Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Stanley Tucci, Laura Haddock, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Santiago Cabrera, Jerrod Carmichael, Liam Garrigan, Peter Cullen and John Goodman, Transformers: The Last Knight opens in theaters on June 23, 2017.
