WARNING: Below are spoilers for Paramount Pictures' Bumblebee, now in theaters.
The Transformers films have a tradition of post-release scenes that were actually created before the birth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It extends to director Michael Bay from 2007. Three of the extensions also contained such sequences, and now Bumblebee continues this tradition with a sting that will be a preview of the future of the live action series could.
Although 2017 The Last Knight was to provide the stage for an ambitious expansion of Transformers with prequels, sequels and spin-offs whose disappointing box office results brought Paramount Pictures and Habro to the To pull the brake. Bumblebee as what could be a gentle reboot for the franchise.
Director Travis Knight's mid-credits scene in some way completes the character arc of human protagonist Charlie (Hailee Stanfield) for something that could be either a direct sequel or the next phase of the main deal.
EARTH IS HAVING A AUTOBOT
We immediately see Bumblebee (voiced by Dylan O & Brien) and Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen). Entering through a mysterious forest after leaving the background of San Francisco. Optimus thanks his "old friend" for protecting Earth from the pursuing Decepticons Shatter and Dropkick.
He also thanks Bumblebee for supporting the future of the Autbots by disrupting the message that the duo wanted to forward to Megatron and its invasion forces. However, their conversation is interrupted by the sonic boom in the sky. The camera shoots up and shows seven fireballs smashed to the ground, just as Bumblebee did before, indicating that the Autobot cavalry has arrived at their new home. It begins an immediate sequel, as they do not know if Decepticons tracked the seven, whether these flashes are actually Decepticons or if the US government sector 7 has discovered them.
CHARLIE IS IN DRIVING SEAT
Knight then disappears to Charlie, who is driving a seemingly new Corvette through the city, but it is in fact her later father's car, with which she used to be frustrated when she tried to restore. She had used it in an attempt to deal with her grief, but her lack of success only leads to fear and isolation and growing anger toward her remaining family.
These are simple and subtle sequences, as it's only about Charlie's windy roads, the wind blowing through her hair. But it does suggest that after Bumblebee's departure, she had time to restore the Corvette, and her broad smile makes her feel reassured. Charlie is even more confident and happy, two things she thought were never going to be.
Directed by Travis Knight from a screenplay by Christina Hodson, Hummel from Bumblebee, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Pamela Adlon, Jason Drucker, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, Ricardo Hoyos and Gracie Dzienny.
