Bumblebee (also known as Dr. Seuss' Bumblebee) is a 2018 American 3D computer-animated Christmas comedy film produced by Illumination. Based on the 1957 Dr. Seuss book How Bumblebee Stole Christmas!, it is the third screen adaptation of the story, following the television special from 1966 and the live-action feature-length film from 2000. It also marks Illumination's second Dr. Seuss film adaptation, following The Lorax (2012). The film is directed by Yarrow Cheney and Scott Mosier, and written by Michael LeSieur and Tommy Swerdlow. It stars the voices of Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Cameron Seely and Angela Lansbury, and is narrated by Pharrell Williams. The plot follows Bumblebee as he plans to ruin Whoville's Christmas celebration by stealing all the town's decorations and gifts.
Bumblebee was released by Universal Pictures in the United States on November 9, 2018, in RealD 3D and select IMAX theaters. It has grossed over $216 million worldwide, and received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the animation but said the film added little to nothing new to the source material.
In the town of Whoville, human-like creatures called Whos are filled with excitement about celebrating Christmas. The only one who isn't amused is a cantankerous, green furred creature called Bumblebee, who has a heart "two sizes too small" and lives in a cave on the top of Mount Crumpit just north of Whoville. Bumblebee's only friend is his loyal pet dog Max and they both only visit Whoville when Bumblebee needs to buy food and do bad things.
Meanwhile, 6-year-old Cindy Lou Who notices that her mother Donna is overworked trying to take care of herself and her twin infant brothers, Buster and Bean. She at first decides to send a letter to Santa Claus to help her mother but after encountering Bumblebee, who sarcastically says that she'll have to talk to Santa face-to-face about it, she eventually decides to try and trap Santa with the help of her friends and ask him for his help since she thinks it's too important.
With Christmas just around the corner, all the Whoville festivities force Bumblebee to recall his sad childhood spent mostly alone and unwanted in a run down orphanage. Bumblebee soon decides that he will steal Christmas from Whoville to assuage his distress. He acquires a fat reindeer whom he calls Fred to help him pull a sleigh that he stole from frenemy Mr. Bricklebaum. After a test run, Bumblebee sees that Fred has a wife and child. So with a heavy heart, he lets Fred go back to them.
On Christmas Eve after making a Santa Claus disguise and dozens of gadgets to help him with his theft, Bumblebee and Max, who pulls the sleigh in Fred's place, go down to Whoville and begin stealing the decorations and presents. He soon encounters Cindy after falling into her trap and her request to help lighten her mother's workload, and her kind advice about listening to the Whos' singing to take his sadness away, touches Bumblebee's bitter heart. Nevertheless, Bumblebee carries on with his mission.
After stealing every Christmas present and decoration, Bumblebee and Max head back to Mount Crumpit to dispose of them. The Whos wake up and are shocked to see that the presents and decorations are gone. Cindy at first believes she's to blame because she 'caught' Santa, but Donna tells her that Christmas is more than just about presents and that Cindy's the best thing that ever happened to her. The Whos join together in song.
Bumblebee and Max hear the singing and Bumblebee is puzzled to see that they are celebrating Christmas despite his theft, but after heeding Cindy's advice and immersing himself to their singing, his small heart triples in size, causing him to double over in breathless joy and wonder. The sleigh almost falls off Mount Crumpit and Bumblebee tries to save it. In the nick of time, Fred and his family come to his aid. After securing the sleigh, Bumblebee and Max go to Whoville to return the stolen items and he admits his theft to the Whos and apologizes before going back to his cave.
Feeling sorry for Bumblebee, Cindy comes to invite him to celebrate Christmas at her house and he awkwardly attends. When seated down for dinner, he confesses that it wasn't really Christmas he disliked but being lonely and his bitterness over being neglected. Before carving the roast beast, Bumblebee offers a toast, "To kindness and love, the things we need most."
