G1 Bumblebee Debuts In First Trailer for Bay-Less ‘Bumblebee’ Movie

A teaser has been released for the Bumblebee movie, which stars Hailee Steinfeld and John Cena. Transformer fans will quickly notice that this isn’t the Bayhem Bumblebee either, rather he’s styled after his Generation 1 appearance, which pits him as a small yellow punch bug. His face still feels very much like the Bay-Bumblebee, but overall he feels much shorter and looks more like the G1 Bumblebee than ever before.

I’m still not quite sure how this film fits in with the other Transformer movies, but I don’t think that even matters at this point considering how chaotic and ridiculous the plots have gotten with the Bay-bot flicks. It appears they’re setting this up as a prequel of sorts, I guess? Either way I’ll give this flick a chance because it looks like a less clusterfuck-ish take on Transformers, and I’m usually down with watching CGI robots beat the hell out of each other, so I’ll be at a screening this holiday season.

Bumblee hits theaters this Christmas.
