Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Bumblebee, the very first spinoff from the studio’s wildly lucrative Transformers film franchise. Director Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings) will make his live-action directing debut on the pic, which finds Hailee Steinfeld taking on the lead human role in a story that takes place in the 1980s.

On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.

It differs from Michael Bay‘s many Transformers films in that it’s set in the 80s and tells more intimate story, with Bumblebee befriending a young girl. The tone is said to be more in line with a coming-of-age/teen movie, with the titular Autobot featuring as one of the only major Transformers in the film. That’s a stark contrast to Bay’s movies, in which the fate of the entire planet is always on the line.

Written by Christina Hodson, the movie also stars John Cena, Pamela Adlon, Kenneth Choi, Megan Pryce and Martin Short.

Bumblebee opens in theaters on December 21st.
