War rages on Cybertron, and things look bad for the Autobots. The Decepticons have broken through the front lines, contact has been lost with the capital, and Ratchet, Brawn, Arcee, Cliffjumper, Wheeljack, Ironhide, and several other survivors are pinned down under Decepticon assault until Optimus Prime arrives to momentarily repel their foes. Prime looks for scout B-127, who appears only a moment after. The arrival of Soundwave, Starscream and Shockwave on the battlefield, as well as the surge in Decepticon forces, prompts Prime to order the Autobots to fall back to a launchpad. He instructs the Autobots to board escape pods and flee from the planet. He also gives B-127 a secret mission: go to Earth, a well-hidden planet Prime has identified, and establish a base for the Autobots to regroup and strike back. As the Seekersunder Shockwave's command begin attacking the launchpad directly, Prime leaps into the horde of Decepticons to buy B-127's pod some time to escape. The year is 198...

As a prequel to the rest of the live-action film series, Bumblebeeincludes set-up elements for several of them: 1. Ancillary media dating back to 2007 has credited Megatron with inflicting the injuries that caused Bumblebee to lose his voice (with both the Aligned continuity family and the Cyberverse cartoon adapting the idea for their continuities), but internal to the films themselves, no specifics were ever provided, with "damage in battle" being the only reason given for the little Autobot's muteness. Bumblebeetells the on-screen version of the story, revealing that Blitzwing was the culprit. 2. Meanwhile, Megatron himself is notably absent from the film's Cybertron-set prelude since, per the first movie's events, he is frozen on Earth at the time. 3.

Two albums were released for the film: 1. Bumblebee (Motion Picture Score) - showcasing composer Dario Marianelli's score for the film. 2. Bumblebee (Motion Picture Soundtrack)- featuring the film's diegetic music as well as Hailee Steinfeld's end credits song, "Back to Life."
Coming off the notoriously poor reception to The Last Knight, Bumblebee had a ways to go in terms of redeeming the Transformers film franchise for both Paramount and the general movie-going public. However, the film was positively received by critics, who generally praised Travis Knight's restrained directorial approach, Hailee Steinfeld's acting, the Generation 1-styled robot designs, and Charlie and Bumblebee's dynamic, comparing the film to its spiritual predecessors, E.T. and The Iron Giant. The film currently holds a 92% and a "Certified Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. After making $500,000 at 325 theaters from its December 8 preview screenings, Bumblebee made its domestic opening alongside Aquaman, Welcome to Marwen, and Second Act, and proceeded to gross $21 million over its first weekend, finishing third behind Aquaman and Mary Poppins Returns.
