Transformers Universe: Bumblebee, also variously labeled "Transformers 6", "The Bumblebee Movie" and "Bumblebee: The Movie" in Hasbro's presentational material, will be the sixth movie in the live-action film series, and is currently expected to be released on December 21, 2018. The concept for the film was developed during the writers room assembled in the lead up to Transformers: The Last Knight and will be written by Christina Hodson and directed by Travis Knight. Unlike previous films, Transformers Universe: Bumblebeewill focus on just one member of the Autobot team (Bumblebee, in case you hadn't guessed) and takes place during 1987. It will be produced for a lower budget, at around $70 million, less than half the budget of the first live-action film.
