Production on Transformers: Bumblebee, the first Transformers spin-off, has wrapped and star Hailee Steinfeld took to Instagram to unveil the first logo for the forthcoming film, which easily captures the '80s setting of the project.
The logo, which you can see below, teases Bumblebee's return to his 1980s Volkswagen Beetle form, and manages to capture the feel of The Iron Giant --- a film producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura compared the spinoff to in previous interviews. The treatment is also, admittedly, a much different take than the logo that was reported back in May.
It's worth noting that most films go through various versions of a logo before their theatrical release, so it's entirely possible that the final logo will be much different when the film is released next year.
The Bumblebee spinoff will mark the first off-shoot from Michael Bay’s Transformers universe, which saw the most recent installment, Transformers: The Last Knight, released back in June. It'll also mark the first live-action film for Knight, who made his directing debut with last year’s Kubo And The Two Strings. The film stars Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), Jorge Lendeborg Jr. (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and wrestler-turned-actor John Cena.
Directed by Kubo and the Two Strings helmer Travis Knight with a script by Christina Hodson, Paramount is expected to roll out Bumblebee theatrically at some point in 2018.
