The Transformers series has continued to stray far from the boy-and-machine heart of the 2007 original over the last decade, instead venturing down increasingly grey and doomy, knights-dragons-dinosaurs territory.

Indeed, Bumblebee will set itself apart from Michael Bay's five (!) Transformers films in that it is set in the 1980s and tells a smaller scale story, with the titular Transformer befriending a young girl.

Loyal, resilient and tough, Bumblebee is arguably the most popular Autobot after Optimus Prime and he's getting his own film.

'A driver don't pick the vehicle, the auto pick the driver, it's a mystical bond between man and machine, ' intones a voiceover, quoting the words of Uncle Bobby the used vehicle dealer from the first Transformers film. But the franchise looks like it's about to return to the lighter, Amblin-inspired coming-of-age themes of the first film with a new spin-off. Charlie had previously spoken to Collider.com about the movie and her role. "[She's] incredibly unique and strong and has - something I love about her is that a lot of people tend to underestimate her knowledge and she continuously proves herself and what she knows and creates this incredible relationship with this Transformer", she said.

Bumblebee was directed by Travis Knight, an animator on Coraline, ParaNorman, The Boxtrolls, Kubo and the Two Strings, who makes his live-action directorial debut with the first Transformers spinoff. Bumblebee opens in theaters on December 21st. "When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug".
