Bumblebee has got a makeover for the latest instalment of Transformers. This is not the first time the friendly autobot has got a new look. Bumblebee sported a new design in Transformers: Age Of Extinction along with Optimus Prime.

Michael Bay has shared the first glimpse of Bumblebee's new look for Transformers: The Last Knight on his Twitter account. This comes just days after the director teased a new meaner look of Megatron.

Bay shared the image of the silent autobot on his Twitter account on 4 June with the caption: "Bee is back! @generalmotors really got it done with this custom-built 2016 Camaro. #transformers." It is clear from Bay's tweet that Bumblebee gets a redesign in the form of a custom-built 2016 Camaro, which comes from the stable of car manufacturing giant General Motors.

The new design is a lot sleeker than the previous forms of the autobot and will sport its signature colours — yellow and black — since the franchise kicked off in 2007. Moreover, as the Bumblebee spin-off movie is marked for 2018, it makes sense that the autobot gets revealed first with its new look.

So far the makers of the movie have been tight-lipped about the plot of the film. But we do know that Sir Anthony Hopkins will have a role in the movie, although the role itself is unspecified at the moment. The other cast members includes Mark Wahlberg, who will be reprising his role as Cade Yeager from Age Of Extinction, Josh Duhamel as Lieutenant Colonel William Lennox, Isabela Moner plays Izabella, while Jerrod Carmichael has an unspecified leading role.

Production of the fifth film of the franchise is currently underway in Cuba. The movie will release in US theatres on 23 June 2017.
