Optimus Prime Confirmed For Bumblebee

The Transformers spin-off gets a heavy-hitting friend!

By Robert Marrujo:: Love 'em or hate 'em, but Michael Bay's Transformers movies have been a bankable constant in Hollywood for years now. Although Bay has claimed to have moved on from the series with last year's Transformers: The Last Knight, the prolific filmmaker is at the very least helping to produce the franchise's first theatrical spin-off with the upcoming Bumblebee movie.

Set in the '80s and directed by Kubo and the Two Strings' Travis Knight, fans have some hope for the project, but one burning question has been whether or not beloved Autobot Optimus Prime would be in the flick. To the delight of many, it has been confirmed by Peter Cullen, the voice of Prime himself, that the character will be in Bumblebee. Check out the footage above to see for yourself.

To what extent Optimus Prime will be in the film is anyone's guess, at this point. Bumblebee and Prime do have a storied friendship, but we'll have to wait and see how much the movie focuses on it.

Bumblebee is slated to release on December 21, 2018.
