The enigma juggernaut that is Transformers: The Last Knight rolls on with the second full trailer, which is embedded below. Now we’ve heard a lot about this movie: it’s got Nazis! It’s got King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable! It’s got Optimus Prime going bad! It’s got Sir Anthony Hopkins! It’s got Goonies! Well, sort of. This new trailer focuses on none of the other “What the…?” stuff that’s been introduced before, but on a young girl named Izabella and her precocious friends who seem to live in a Transformers demilitarized zone, and the only one there to help them is Mark Wahlberg!

The new character played by Isabela Moner is indeed the focus of this new trailer, and it looks like she lives in Syria and is surrounded by cute little baby Dinobots, a cute-ish pile of scrap named Squeeks, and a roving band of murdering Decepticons making life a living hell for what looks like a loveable group of urchins led by Izabella. She’s tough, she’s scrappy, she’s tech savvy, and she seems far too trusting of (human) strangers. Check out her story in the new trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight

So that’s Wahlberg back as Cade Yeager from the last movie, Age of Extinction, the whereabouts of his own child and why he’s now out collecting orphans is not revealed, at least not in the trailer. Admittedly, it’s nice to see a female lead in a Transformers movie that isn’t arm candy in tight pants or leaning luxuriously over a motorcycle, but the enduring mystery of this movie is how all these various plots are going to intersect into something resembling a coherent plot. Stanley Tucci and Sophia Myles also return from Age of Extinction, while Josh Duhamel and John Turturro return from the first three Transformers films.

Transformers: The Last Knight opens in theatres everywhere on June 23.
