Netflix Reveals Trailer for Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy

Netflix and Hasbro, Inc. have given us our first look at their new animated series Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy. This trailer represents the first trailer for a three-part new series that will dive into the world of Transformers. The first chapter, titled “Siege,” will bring us to Cybertron in the closing moments of the brutal civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons. War for Cybertron was created with Rooster Teeth Animation. The trailer reveals a beautifully crafted vision of Cybertron at war, with Optimus Prime and Megatron struggling to save their planet, and their followers, at all costs. The War For Cybertron Trilogy series begins with “Siege,” the six-episode first season. The second installment, “Earthrise,” will follow, and then the third and final chapter.

Here’s the official synopsis for Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy:

It is the final hours of the devastating civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons. The war that has torn apart their home planet of Cybertron is at a tipping point. Two leaders, Optimus Prime and Megatron, both want to save their world and unify their people, but only on their own terms. In an attempt to end the conflict, Megatron is forced to consider using the Allspark, the source of all life and power on Cybertron, to “reformat” the Autobots, thus “unifying” Cybertron. Outnumbered, outgunned, and under SIEGE, the battle-weary Autobots orchestrate a desperate series of counterstrikes on a mission that, if everything somehow goes right, will end with an unthinkable choice: kill their planet in order to save it.
