Fans are on their way back when Bumblebee hits theaters and a new featurette reveals how fun this movie will be for fans of Generation 1 and have a first look at Arcee and Cliffjumper to boot.
The new Bumblebee feat starts with director Travis Knight, who grew up to love the classic Transformers. "I'm a child in the 80's. I grew up playing Transformers action figures, and I grew up watching the animated series," Knight said. "Going back to my experience as a child, Autobots were always cars, Decepticons were always flying."
"Simplified, squares things like the toy, and it encourages G1 aesthetics," says visualization monitor Jason Smith, with production designer Sean Haworth who adds "Every detail we could get from the comic we used on the characters. "
You will notice that in a particular stage of the discussion about returning to the more classic designs, Optimus Prime takes the battlefield and, if you look carefully, you'll see that he is in another memorable Autobot Cliff jumper. Cliffjumper's bright red paint job can be seen at the bottom left of Optimus, but Cliffjumper can also be on the right side of Optimus later in the sequence as a red Autobot appears along with a pink Autobot that can be very good Arcee, although hard to see her face. You can see the images for yourself over and over.
