This new featurette wants you to know that the upcoming Bumblebee movie is a throwback to Transformers: Generation 1 (also known as Generation One or G1, the children’s toy line that ran from 1984 to 1992):
Bumblebee – Generation 1 Aesthetic
“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.”
Are you for a blast from the past then?
Release date: December 21, 2018 (in theaters).
