Optimus Prime To Cameo In “Bumblebee”

Actor Peter Cullen has confirmed that “Bumblebee,” the upcoming “Transformers” franchise spin-off, will feature at least one more Autobot than just the titular character.

Cullen, who has voiced Optimus Prime in the original 1980s cartoon and the current live-action film series, spoke with the CineMovie YouTube Channel this week and confirmed we’ll be “hearing his voice in Bumblebee”.

Cullen doesn’t outright confirm he’ll be voicing Optimus Prime so he might be doing another character, but the more likely possibility is an Optimus cameo.

Hailee Steinfeld and Jon Cena lead the cast of the spin-off which comes from “Kubo and the Two Strings” director Travis Knight and has been compared more to “The Iron Giant” than previous “Transformers” films.

“Bumblebee” will hit cinemas on December 21st 2018.
