More quotes from Bumblebee

Trivia: The film was originally made and marketed as a prequel to the prior "Transformers" films directed by Michael Bay. After the film was released to a much warmer critical and audience reception than the prior films, it was confirmed that instead of a prequel, "Bumblebee" will instead serve as a sort-of "reboot" of the series, and that future films will serve as direct sequels to it, without necessarily acknowledging the continuity of the Bay films.
