Interview With Bumblebee Movie Writer Christina Hodson

Den of Geek has published a short interview piece with Christina Hodson, writer for Transformers: Bumblebee. In the interview, Hodson talks about how this movie will make a good entry point for newcomers in the audience, but still carry with it plenty to keep the existing fans satisfied. Another theme is the desire to bring a strong female character to be the lead in one of these movies, something that has not necessarily been achieved in prior installments of the franchise.

Like the first Transformers film, which featured a friendship between Bumblebee and Sam as its emotional core, Bumblebee is all about the friendship between an Autobot and a human.

“I had a really clear sense in my mind of who [Charlie] was as a person and what they would mean to each other,” [Hodson] says. “That was always the North Star that guided everything.”

“This is really an origin story for Bumblebee,” she says, “but the character traits are all the same. They're all there. His loyalty, his kindness. He's fun-loving and really he's been the one who has always had that special bond with humans, whether it's Sam or someone else; that was something that I wanted to lean into a bit and see where and how that began.”
