Little is known about the Bumblebee movie except that Travis Knight, director of the critically acclaimed Kubo and the Two Strings
has been chosen to direct the film. The film is due for release in June 2018. In the meantime, you can see Bumblebee in Transformers: The Last Knight
as his mind-controlled friend and mentor Optimus Prime attempts to murder him.
With this recent rush of trademarks, however, it makes us wonder: is "Cybertronics" a term wrapped up with the Bumblebee movie as well?
