*** The film originally tied directly in to what ''Film/TransformersTheLastKnight'' presented - Bumblebee being active on Earth for several decades prior to the 21st century - and would have opened with Bumblebee already on the run from Sector Seven after having been hunted down. However, the opening was instead reanimated to include the opening battle scene on Cybertron and presented Bumblebee's arrival as a recent event.
