Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy – First “Siege” Trailer from Netflix arrives

Netflix and Hasbro, Inc., in partnership with Rooster Teeth, has released the first teaser trailer for Chapter One of the highly anticipated Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy, premiering on Netflix.

The Series raises the stakes of the Autobot and Decepticon war with Chapter One having six, twenty-two minute episodes, complete with a new animation look and style that presents the Transformers bots like you’ve never seen them before.

The Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy plunges us deep into events that live at the heart of this legendary franchise, with SIEGE shining a spotlight on a critical timeframe in Transformers history on Cybertron.

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.

Rooster Teeth (RWBY, gen:LOCK) is producing the original series for Netflix, and Polygon Pictures (GodzillaKnights of Sidonia) is serving as the animation studio.

Transformers veteran F.J. DeSanto (Transformers: Titans ReturnTransformers: Power of the Primes) is serving as showrunner on the series with several contributing writers, including George Krstic (Megas XLR), Gavin Hignight (Transformers: Cyberverse), and Brandon Easton (Agent Carter, Transformers: Rescue Bots).

(PPI) President and CEO. “The Transformers universe has so many rich characters and engaging stories. Getting the opportunity to be part of the team bringing the robots in disguise to life in this new trilogy is unbelievable.”

Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy marks the inaugural production for our Rooster Teeth Studios division and we’re proud to be partnering with and entrusted by Hasbro and Netflix,” said Matt Hullum, Rooster Teeth co-founder and Chief Content Officer.

  1. Please make captions available for posted trailers.

    • Hi Amy, thanks for this. I’m sorry the lack of caption has caused problems. The trailers presented are from the official film companies where possible. We don’t have the facility, or the budget to add captions ourselves to material embedded from official sources. I will try and make sure that in future I post captioned versions. Have you tried following the links to see if captioned versions are presented on the official sites?
