The Autobots and Decepticons are back in Netflix’s upcoming trilogy- Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy. The three-part arc will follow our beloved characters, both good and bad, as we dive deep into the heart of their Cybertronian conflict.
The first trailer for the animated trilogy was shown over the weekend at Hasbro’s Brand Entertainment Preview Event. You can check out the explosive trailer below:
The trailer promises plenty of intense action sequences and a refreshing stylistic take on the final days of Cybertron.
The first chapter, Siege, reveals Megatron’s plan to unify Cybertron and to eradicate his enemies, including Prime and anyone who dares defy him. Circumstances can change, but Megatron never will.
Check out the full synopsis:
“Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy: Siege begins in 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.”
According to IMDB, Siege will consist of 6 episodes, running for 22 minutes each. Once all 6 episodes have aired, we will enter the next phase of the war… Earthrise. Then the final chapter of the trilogy, currently untitled, will conclude the power struggle between the Autobots and Decepticons.
Despite the exciting trailer, we still don’t know when the first part will air. Hopefully it is soon because it looks fantastic. However, it might take some of us some time to adjust to not having Peter Cullen and Frank Welker return to voice Optimus and Megatron. Having said that, I am fully open to an entirely new voice cast and from what I’ve heard already, I’m really impressed.
