Hailee Steinfeld has revealed our first look at her character, Charlie Watson, who’ll be the main star of the upcoming Transformers Bumblebee spin-off.

Earlier this month Paramount revealed the cast and plot of the upcoming Bumblebee spin-off, revealing that Steinfeld will be in the starring role. They also revealed that the movie will have more of an eighties vibe than previous entries into the series with Bumblebee once again reprising his non-transformed VW Bug appearance.

The movie has also been compared to the Iron Giant, and will see much less Transformer action than we’re used to, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Thing have been a little… crowded over the years.

Now we know the cast and plot, it’s now time to take a closer look at the movie and thanks to a Tweet from Steinfeld, we know that Charlie Watson will look like, and it’s channelling that 80s rocker vibe.

I mean, I’m certainly into the theme so far.

Now that the movie has begun production, it’s likely that we’ll see a few more images like this over the coming months. I’ll be interested to see what John Cena looks like in the movie and what type of role he’ll be taking.

For those that missed out, here’s the plot for the movie:

“On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee 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.”
