Ahead of the home entertainment release of Bumblebee, Director Travis Knight talks about the first Transformers spin-off movie Bumblebee.
Michael Bay has brought Hasbro’s Transformers to the cinema in a big way over the last decade. The tales of Cybertron’s Optimus Prime, Megatron and, of course, fan-favourite Bumblebee have made a huge dent at the box office. Now it’s time for the yellow bug to get his own film. Bumblebee goes back to the 80s, complete with G1 (Generation 1) Transformers such as Shockwave, Soundwave and Ravage and a kicking soundtrack. It may well be the film fans since the 80s have always wanted to see.
Knight talks about how he worked with Michael Bay, and how he protected the film as a protector of the film. With a mute titular character Knight talks about how his animator’s knowledge helped him bring Bumblebee to life.
The film also stars Justin Theroux, The Maze Runner’s Dylan O’Brien, Angela Bassett, Peter Cullen, Megyn Price and Pamela Adlon.
Bumblebee is available now on Digital and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on 13th May, from Paramount Home Media Distribution
