    Bumblebee Meets Charlie’s Dog Conan – Exclusive Image
    Bumblebee Meets Charlie’s Dog Conan – Exclusive Image

    Previous Transformers movies have been high on clanging robot mayhem, and low on cuteness – aside from Sam Witwicky’s mischievous chihuahua Mojo, the franchise hasn’t been too concerned with four-legged friends. But that looks set to change in Bumblebee – the ‘80s-set spin-off prequel will see the beloved Autobot form a friendship with 18 year-old Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), and her little dog too. Bumblebee, meet Conan.
    Named after Arnie’s iconic action hero (“with the proper pronunciation like the awesome Barbarian, not the awesome talk-show host,” confirms director Travis Knight), the canine companion is just another thing for Bumblebee to try and get his metal head around when he joins forces with Charlie. “When Bumblebee encounters this creature, he tries to figure out how to communicate with him,” Knight tells Empire in the upcoming Review of the Year issue. “Him just trying to exist in a normal human domicile does not go very well.”

    From the trailers, Bumblebee is looking like a warmer, more Amblin-esque entry into the series, and is the first live-action Transformers movie not to be directed by Michael Bay. Read Empire’s Bumblebee trailer breakdown with Travis Knight here, and read plenty more about the film in the December issue of Empire, on sale on 1 November.

    Bumblebee arrives in UK cinemas on 26 December.

    With a name like Conan, I thought he'd be well...bigger. Like a mastiff or a dane. Not a Jack Russel. Cute.

    One of the more charming aspects of the 2007 film was when Bots were doing things like trying to hide in Sam's yard. Glad to see things like that again.

    Looks a little like Wishbone, the dog I mean. So cute! My dog would shriek and run away in fright. Like she did with the squeegee on the pole! Haha!

    Bumblebee: Finally I can talk. Little four-legged goat do you know how hard it is to pretend not being able to speak in order to sell more toys?
    Conan: Yeah I feel ya. It's pretty ruff.

    I believe the scene will play out as follows: Upon meeting Bumblebee, Conan will make love to Bumblebee's foot. Then pee on it. Conan (with Ving Rhames as his voice actor) will then call Bumblebee a "jive turkey" or "sucka".. which would cue "who let the dogs out" causing Bumblebee to do the chicken dance.

    There wont be. If there was the test screenings would have lowered the positive test screenings.
