Probably known as one of the most iconic figures in the Transformers lineup, everyone’s favorite lovable yellow VW bug takes center stage in a new film. Starring Hailee Steinfeld in the “Shia LaBeouf/Mark Wahlberg unnecessary human in a giant robot movie” role, the film is a prequel to the Transformers movie universe, with a throwback 80s setting.

Bumblebee hits theaters on December 21st, 2018.

On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.
