We have mad love for Bumblebee on the month love.
The Autobots and Decepticons return for another showdown in Transformers: The Last Knight on Sunday 4 February on M-Net (DStv Channel 101) and DStv Now at 20:05.
Michael Bay returns as director of the fifth instalment of the Transformers film series. Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and Anthony Hopkins are part of the cast, which is another reason why you can’t miss out on the movie.
From the little that we know about the flick, there’s something offish happening between the leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime and his comrade in arms, Bumblebee. Here are some interesting facts on our favourite Autobot, Bumblebee.
The Dark Knight connection
Will Friedle is the voice of Bumblebee in the television series Transformers: Prime, Friedle is also the voice of the Batman in the animated movie Batman Beyond: Return of the Joke.
The culprit behind Bee’s voice
Still on the subject of Bumblebee’s voice. During an intense battle between Bumblebee and Decepticons, Megatron shatters his voice box resulting in Bumblebee losing his ability to speak.
Bee the Beatle
Before Bumblebee transforms into the sexy 2008 Chev Camero in the Michael Bay movies, he originally transformed into a Volkswagen Beatle.
He is not the dying type
While Jazz, Ironhide, Ratchet and of course Optimus Prime have all died in the cinematic universe, Bumblebee is only main Autobot who has not died. We will be crossing fingers he once again evades the angel of death in Transformers: The Last Knight.
The star of his own movie
The Bumblebee movie titled Transformers Universe: Bumblebee is set for release in December of 2018.
Watch Bumblebee in action on The Transformers: The Last Knight on Sunday 4 February on M-Net (DStv Channel 101) and DStv Now at 20:05.
