The sixth instalment in the hit Transformers franchise will change gears. It will be a movie about one of its popular characters, Bumblebee.
Paramount and Hasbro have revealed that fans can expect one Transformers film a year starting in 2017, with Transformers 5 scheduled to hit theatres June 23, reported Aceshowbiz.
The Bumblebee film is set for a June 8, 2018, release, with the third of these announced films due out June 28, 2019. Tom Warner, the Transformers franchise leader for Hasbro, further explained the plans.
“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 centred around Bumblebee for 2018 and the next chapter for 2019,” he said.
On the June 8, 2018 release date, the Bumblebee film will clash with Godzilla 2. While it’s unclear if the spin-off will feature any of existing or new human characters, Transformers 5 will bring back Mark Wahlberg as the lead.
