Bumblebee: The Movie
Transformers Universe: Bumblebee Details In Lorenzo di Bonaventura Interview
ExVee - Monday, June 19, 2017

Collider has posted information from an interview they had with Lorenzo di Bonaventura, where the producer talked about some of the directions and details of next year's Bumblebee-focused prequel movie. Perhaps the most noteworthy is the suggestion of having only a couple of robot character, and spending a lot more time with them, a concept he seems to link to a "departure" from the movies thus far. We've highlighted certain passes below, and you can find a link to the original article as well - keep reading...
“In fact it reminds me a little bit of Iron Giant years ago when I did that movie at Warner Bros. It just reminds me a little bit of that where it was very contained and yet it didn’t feel small.”

“I know we’re doing a spinoff first in the Bumblebee movie, and that is a very distinctive departure from what you’ve been seeing so far… The objective of that movie is to develop more time with less robots in a way, and to go back to 1985 and go back to sort of the original heritage if you would of the Transformers. G1.”

As for the “less Transformers” line, di Bonaventura stresses the distinctiveness of Bumblebee, and just focusing on just one or two Transformers in the course of a film will be a very different kind of dynamic from the previous movies

John Cena was recently interviewed about another movie he's starring in, but the interviewer didn't waste a chance to try to dig some Transformers info out of the actor, who's playing lead in Bumblebee opposite Hailee Steinfeld. Cena's references to conversing with a tennis ball on a stick basically guarantee he's got some screen time interacting with one robot or another, and apart from that, he mostly just talks about what a good job Travis Knight did making the movie look like a Transformers movie but also look completely different from a Transformers movie. yeah, we're mildly confused too. But you can check out some excerpts and a link to the original article below.
While being interviewed regarding Pacific Rim Uprising, Steven DeKnight was briefly asked by Uproxx about his time working with the Transformers Movie Writers Room. There's really no new revelations in this, as he mentions working on what he recalled as a dozen movie pitches, but he did make sure to mention how the upcoming Transformers: Bumblebee was his favorite of what came out of the project. Hopefully that's a genuinely positive sign for the quality of this year's movie, though it's also entirely possible that DeKnight wouldn't even recognize the movie if he saw it today.
