Bumblebee won’t be the only Chevy to star in the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction movie. The film will also feature the award-winning 2014 Corvette Stingray along with the Chevrolet Trax and Sonic, but the Camaro will still serve as the movie’s centerpiece.
The fifth-generation Camaro first made its big screen debut as Bumblebee in the 2007 film Transformers. It was then also featured in the movie’s sequels, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Two Camaro’s will star in Age of Extinction, one a heavily modified vintage 1967 Camaro SS and the futuristic concept Camaro.
“The Transformers movies have been a great partnership for Chevrolet by allowing us to introduce our vehicles to new fans, young and old, around the world,” Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Global Chevrolet, said in a statement. “Now for the fourth time, you’ll see a Camaro as a heroic Autobot, a fitting role for one of the stars of Chevrolet’s lineup.”
In addition to providing vehicles for the movie’s production, General Motors also allowed the movie’s creators to use some of its facilities for filming, including the Warren Technical Center, the Milford Proving Ground and the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant.
