On the run from the Decepticons, Optimus Prime sends Autobot scout B-127 to Earth on an escape pod in order to set up a base of operations where the Autobots can regroup. Landing in the year 1987, B-127 finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Meanwhile a girl named Charlie, who is trying to find her place in the world, discovers B-127 in the form of a Volkswagen Beetle, battle-scarred and broken. While Charlie attempts to fix the Beetle, it transforms into B-127, whom she befriends and nicknames Bumblebee. She then unknowingly unlocks a message from Optimus urging Bumblebee to defend planet Earth.

Bumblebee's alternate mode is a Volkswagen Beetle.

This is the least expensive Transformers movie till date with a budget of $102-128 million.

Parts of the film were shot at the Mare Island Naval Shipyard in Vallejo, CA, simultaneously with 13 Reasons Why. Some of the scenes involved pyrotechnics and helicopters, causing the 13 Reasons Why crew to have to wait between filming takes so that the loud special effects wouldn't disrupt the on-set sound recording.

In this film, the Transformers take on a more classic look of the original cartoon series.

This is the first live-action Transformers that Michael Bay did not direct, but he stayed on board as producer.

This movie is director's Travis Knight first live-action film.
