Several New 'Transformers' Spinoff Movies Coming Soon

The next Transformers movie will be a spinoff centering around Bumblebee.

It was recently announced that Paramount is planning on expanding the Transformer franchise into something similar to the Disney Star Wars money machine. But how are they going to make a new Transformers movie every year? Well, Paramount is going to be doing Transformers spinoff movies. As revealed by Hasbro, the first spinoff will be released in 2018 and will focus on Bumblebee:

“This summer we worked closely with a talented team of A-list screenwriters to map out the future of the Transformers cinematic universe, and as Brian announced earlier, things kick off in a major way in 2017 with the release of Transformers 5 in June. And we’re working on a spin-off movie centered around Bumblebee for 2018 and the next chapter for 2019.”

This makes sense since Bumblebee is the most likable of the Michael Bay robots in disguise, but he doesn't talk and is portrayed as a dumb car. But, maybe this could mark the return of Shia LaBeouf to the Transformers series.
