During the Hasbro Brand Entertainment Preview Event at the New York Toy Fair today, the trailer for Chapter One of Netflix and Rooster Teeth’s Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy was released, giving us fans our first look at the upcoming animated series.
The first chapter – titled Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy: Siege – will consist of six twenty-two minute episodes, and explores a critical period in the history of the war between the Autobots and Decepticons.
Official Description: 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.
The trailer can be viewed on the TRANSFORMERS OFFICIAL YouTube channel.
