A trilogy of seasons will chart the history of the Transformers in a new anime series coming to Netflix.
A brand new Transformers animation is coming to Netflix, the first of a three-season show. Its name, Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy: Siege.
Transformers: WfC was first revealed as a brand new toy line at the San Diego Comic-Con of 2018. I know that Transformers is a multi-layered story that crosses different media platforms, so I honestly can’t tell you how it fits into the already dense Transformers universe.
Note: This has series has no relation to the Transformers: War for Cybertron video game released in 2010 for Windows PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox360.
At this year’s New York Toy Fair, Netflix unveiled Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy: Siege. The six twenty-two minute episodes will focus on a critical time in Transformers history.
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 counter strikes on a mission that, if everything somehow goes right, will end with an unthinkable choice: kill their planet in order to save it.
The second season, entitled Earthrise will tell the story of the Transformers leaving Cybertron in search of the Allspark and landing on Earth. This will be followed by an as of yet untitled third chapter.
I think this looks great and I can’t wait to watch it when it airs sometime in June on Netflix.
