The panel started with the director Travis Knight ( Kubo and the two strings ) solo on stage, discussing his animated background, the love of the original G1 Transformers and how he wanted to do something different and more intimate with Bumblebee . A video of featurette played on the process, pointing out that Bumblebee is a story of "maturation" for both the Autobot holder, and Charlie Watson (Hailee Steinfeld).
Knight explains that coming from the background in animation, you start with "blank canvas" and can build whole worlds. With Transformers he says that it can be inconsistent visually with all that metal breaking together and that is why with his drawings everything has his own colors and his silhouette so that the audience can better define the characters. And of course, all the designs returned to the G1 wave of the original Transformers. They are a "modernization", a hybrid of old school animated aesthetics and the live-action Bumblebee we've known for years.
"You do not want Charlie's hand to look like this Bumblebee represents the first real action movie for Knight who says that the process of accomplishment is much slower in the animation, but with similar teams and processes.An important element of VFX movies is animation, so there is an obvious analogy, says Knight who says he treated the animators as actors since they bring key characters. to life
Bumblebee is an original story
Bumblebee is an original story.He has always been the only Transformer with the strongest connection to humanity "This film actually answers this question," We'll see why he becomes the character that he becomes in the other films, and as to why Bumblebee is alone here on Earth, Travis has slightly ducked this question in explaining that he is a pe This is the frame that they have been watching for this character in this movie.
Do we have the opportunity to see Cybertron? Yes. "And let me tell you, that's awesome", Knight pointed out with happiness. Bumblebee is also written to work for movie buffs who have not seen others.
Haelee Steinfeld and Jorge Lendeborg Jr. then joined Knight on stage to talk about their Bumblebee allied characters.
- Charlie Watson (Steinfeld) is a typical and misunderstood teenager who has experienced a significant loss in his life. She yearns for freedom and friendship. "She sees that in a car that works," says Steinfeld
Memo (Lendeborg) is a geek, likes Larry Bird and Gobots and has a crush on his neighbor Charlie. in the exotic robot adventure Bumblebee. He is shy and through the bow we see him developing trust, sincerity.
More info about Bumblebee Decepticons
Shatter (voiced by Angela Bassett, red color) and Dropkick (blue color, Justin Theroux) are the two Decepticons after Bumblebee shown above. And these are different. They are more complex in design and that is because they are triple. They are muscular cars but also flying cars, as all G1 Decepticons fans know.
- Shatter also turns into a jet harrier – inspired by Nightbird of the G1 era who is a ninja style Decepticon. in a chopper – inspired by Megatron.
You can see notes of these vehicle parts on their designs. Look at the shoulders and lower chest of the Blue Decepticon Dropkick and you can see the helicopter parts with the muscle car stick doors on the sides of the back. The same goes for the spray pieces in Shatter's shoulders and above the knees.
Starscream is actually Dropkick
The funniest part of the panel (apart from all that John Cena said and done) was Travis Knight proclaiming that he was going to break hearts. with a precision when he revealed that the Decepticon jet of the Bumblebee trailer and the CinemaCon images are not Starscream as everyone guessed. It's actually Blitzwing
As for the other antagonist, but on the human side we have Agent Burns – the character of John Cena – who thinks he's right in everything he's doing. "He knows he's right"
Bumblebee SDCC 2018 Images Description
The film begins with military units pursuing Bumblebee through a forest while Bumblebee cuts trees to slow it down. Bumblebee is approaching a clearing to see that it is the side of a mine in a cliff wall or mountain. It is a dead end and the units surround it as one crushes it by knocking it down. Agent Burns (Cena) is at the back of a Humvee-esque vehicle with a turret of cable fire and Bumblebee seems ready to surrender (he turns off his battle mask). And just as it happens a jet fighter is flying in the sky and Burns questions that have called in the air force.
This is of course Blitzwing flying and attacking, apparently killing most of the soldiers with a barrage of missiles. He crushes on Bumblebee who picks him up as they fly against the side of the mountain, scraping it all along. Blitzwing apparently manipulates Bumblebee easily and speaks, condemning him to "death" as he fires machine guns from his arm on Bumblebee. While Bumblebee is about to eclipse, Blitzwing catches it, supports it – it's there that it highlights how much the Decepticon is bigger compared to our little hero – and drops it off the edge.
Bumblebee falls down and seems to faint beside a river and we see from his point of view that he loses his memory core. While he stops, he spots the VW virus in a nearby encampment and that is how he gets that form.
In the next scene, Charlie (his 18th B-Day) wakes up in his caravan – all dressed in & # 39; 80s – brushes his teeth while listening to a walkman then goes through a dump in search of precious or useful pieces and finds the car under a tarp (after overturning the boats). She makes a deal with the landfill owner to work for him for a year if she can run the car and keep it. She tells him that it's his B-Day and he allows her to have it.
In her garage – as seen in the trailer – she discovers that he is a robot who acts like a scared child. It is a touching scene and it is clear how Charlie is looking for a connection from a friend. Bumblebee can not speak but can understand it. They immediately bond and Charlie says that he looks like a drone and that's how he gets the name (also, when she first found it there was a hive under one of the wheels)
There are some other scenes after that, but The key is Shatter and Dropkick do business with the army (Sector 7) and tell them that there is a fugitive from their planet that they hunt (Bumblebee). The leader of sector 7 sees an opportunity to work with them.
We also see Optimus Prime briefly in a hologram, embracing an awesome G1 design. A sequence even has Bumblebee resembling its G1 design while half-transformed inside a tunnel hunting sequence. This film takes place 20 years before the first Michael Bay's first film. We also have a preview of Hoover Dam which also connects to the first movie.
