According the the Hollywood Reporter, the plot of the upcoming film will go as follows: "The story is set in the year 1987, where Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug."

Hailee Steinfeld is also slated to star in the film which is slated for a December 21, 2018 release date to put it opposing Warner Bro's upcoming Aquaman film.
