Steaming service Netflix dropped the first trailer for Transformers: War for Cyberton Trilogy, a three-part anime series from the folks at Rooster Teeth, which previously brought its animation stylings to RWBY and gen:LOCK. The trailer offers a glimpse at Chapter 1, subtitled Siege.
The six, 22-minute-long episodes of begins in the final hours of the civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons that has torn apart the Transformers’ home planet of Cybertron. Megatron (voiced by Jason Marnocha) is tempted to use Cyberton’s source of all life and power, the Allspark, to reboot the battle-weary Autobots in order to unify his people. Led by Optimus Prime (Jake Foushee), our heroes orchestrate a series of counterstrikes that could prevent them from saving their planet by killing it.
Future Trilogy installments will include Chapter 2, subtitled Earthrise. A name for Chapter 3 has not been revealed, but more information will be announced in the future. A premiere date is also under wraps.
