Bumblebee cast grows
Jason Drucker, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow and Gracie Dzienny are among the young actors joining the cast of the film Bumblebee, a spinoff from the hit film series Transformers. Hailee Steinfeld (right) and Jorge Lendeborg Jr will also star in the film, which Travis Knight is directing, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Bumblebee is the yellow and black striped Autobot that appears as one of the main characters in the Transformers film series. Plot details for the spinoff have not yet been released, but the story will reportedly follow Steinfeld’s character and a group of her friends as they team up to help Bumblebee. This loyal Autobot is one of the most popular characters in the Transformers franchise, even though it is not as strong as others. One of the main talking points around the spinoff has been how would Bumblebee’s life be without Optimus Prime, the noble leader of Autobots.
