Meet Squeeks, an all-new and crucially non-CG Autobot that will be wheeling its way into Transformers: The Last Knight in little over a year’s time.
Posing alongside franchise newcomer Isabela Moner, the rusty moped bears some resemblance to Wall-E what with its bug-eyed appearance, and at the very least, we’re hoping that Bay is ramping up the cute factor with Squeeks as opposed to the racist abominations Paramount called Skids and Mudflap.
Following up on shots of robots in disguise – including Barricade and a new-look Bumblebee – Michael Bay has now turned the attention to a brand new Autobot that will make its debut in The Last Knight. No mention of how instrumental Squeeks will prove to be in the final cut, nor if it’ll muscle its way into an action scene or two, but for now, you can feast your eyes on the director’s latest status report, below.
Transformers: The Last Knight has been pegged for June 17, 2017. Further down Paramount’s slate, there’s also word of Transformers 6 deploying into theaters on June 8, 2018 when Bumblebee will take center stage. Finally, Transformers 7 – or whatever title the studio slaps on the sequel – is on course to drop on June 28, 2019.
