Bumblebee is the sixth installment in the Transformers franchise and the first one not directed by Michael Bay (thank god.) Instead of Bay, Travis Knight seats in the directing chair. Before Bumblebee Knight had only directed animated films, so this is quite an ambition jump. Christina Hodson wrote this film and has also written the upcoming Birds of Prey film.
