While Optimus Prime and Megatron may be the heavyweights of the Transformers movies, there is no denying that the real star of the Transformers movie franchise is the Autobot Bumblebee. Introduced to movie audiences back in 2007 as Sam Witwicky's battered yellow 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, Bumblebees devout loyalty to his human charge, unflinching bravery among his fellow autobots and a small dose of cheekiness has concreted the characters position as a favorite among fans.
So it will come as no surprise that after announcing the release dates for their next three Transformers movies creators Hasbro have also confirmed that the sixth movie in the billion dollar movie franchise, due in theatres June 8th 2018 will focus heavily on Bumblebee. This should be good news for fans of 2007's first instalment in the franchise, which featured Bumblebee more prominently than any of its sequels

More about Transformers: The Last Knight (movie)
The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).
There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
Directed by Michael Bay, Transformers: The Last Knight's release date is June 23rd, 2017.
