After not getting much of the expected box office response, the studio behind the franchise decided to go for a prequel with its sixth installment, taking the director’s hat from Michel Bay to Travis Knight.

Big fan of how chunky the Transformers look in the new Bumblebee movie. I might actually see this one. pic.twitter.com/BxWYn5t7Qf

We've got to be honest. #Bumblebee looks great.
Travis Knight's style is all over this trailer, and seems to have his trademark heart that he infused in 'Kubo'. We have been fooled before with this franchise, but this film seems to be the first winner in a very long time. pic.twitter.com/zoj704jg7J

Set in the 80s, the Hailee Steinfeld starring prequel is expected to be a reboot of the entire franchise.
