When Michael Bay rebooted Transformers he had Bumblebee lose his voice and only be able to communicate in beeps and through radio and television blurbs.
The new animated series on Hasbro's The Hub, Transfomers Prime, followed suit, as it was developed by Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman, writers/producers on the movies as well.
Now Hasbro has announced that in the July 26th episode of Transformers Prime, Bumblebee will speak for the first time.
That's not all that was announced as attendees of the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con will get a first listen to Bumblebee speaking during the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters panel this Thursday at 11 am PT.
We're guessing that this means in the new Transformers 4 movie that Bumblebee will be speaking as well.
Transformers 4 has a Summer 2014 release directed by Michael Bay and starring Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller and Kelsey Grammar.
