Transformers Movie Franchise Expands With Bumblebee Spin-off Movie in 2018

Yes, the character who's toys peg-warmed on store shelves everywhere in the last four Transformers movies will now peg-warm even harder with a spin-off movie coming in 2018.

We knew that Paramount was going to expand it's Transformers franchise. Well yesterday we had the second salvo of the upcoming barrage with the announcement that after next year's Transformers 5, we'll be getting another Transformers movie the following year starring, Bumblebee. Transformers 6 (oh god we've reached that point? *shudder*) was announced for 2019. 

As for why Bumblebee? The plucky yellow Autobot has been a mainstay in the live-action Transformers franchise other than Optimus Prime and Megatron (though he's currently Galvatron now, it's still just freaking Megatron to me dammit!). It still perplexing how they'll fashion an entire movie around the character and what villains it can use as Michael Bay have ruined used Shockwave, Soundwave, Lockdown, and Starscream. Plus well the last movie did end with the Dinobots running loose in China, and honestly that seems like a better spin-off movie set-up to me than anything Bumblebee could do. I guess Paramount truly does see $$ signs and possibilities for the character.

Whatever the case, the next Transformers movie, Transformers 5 hits June 23, 2017 once again directed (for the truly final time "he means it this time") Michael Bay.
