Transformers fans who don’t have a Netflix subscription are going to want to roll-out and get one after this first trailer for the upcoming Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy: Siege series has dropped from Hasbro and the streaming network. The new series, created in a partnership with Rooster Teeth animation takes one of the darkest looks yet at the franchise as we get an in-depth look at the war between the Decepticons and the Autobot Resistance led by Optimus Prime. The new series, which is set to drop on Thursday, July 30 is probably one of the moodiest and most mature takes we’ve had on the franchise so far.
Voicing your favorite autobots and decepticons are Jake Foushee (Optimus Prime); Jason Marnocha (Megatron); Linsay Rousseau (Elita-1); Joe Zieja (Bumblebee); Frank Todaro (Starscream); Rafael Goldstein (Ratchet); Keith Silverstein (Jetfire); Todd Haberkorn (Shockwave, Red Alert); Edward Bosco (Ultra Magnus, Soundwave); Bill Rogers (Wheeljack); Sophia Isabella (Arcee); Brook Chalmers (Impactor); Shawn Hawkins (Mirage); Kaiser Johnson (Ironhide); Miles Luna (Teletraan I, Cliffjumper); and Mark Whitten (Sideswipe, Skywarp).
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.
