In search of purpose, she finds an old, beat-up Volkswagen in a friend's junkyard which is then given to her as a present. While repairing the car, she accidentally reactivates the Autobot B-127 whom she gives the name Bumblebee sending an electric pulse which attracts the unwanted attention of the enemy Decepticons. Bumblebee is then tasked with protecting Charlie and Earth from an imminent attack. Directed by Travis Knight.
