Netflix announces Transformers: War for Cybertron



During the New York Toy Fair, Netflix announced a new animated series based on the popular Transformers toy franchise from Hasbro.

Netflix has provided the synopsis for Transformers: War for 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."



According to John Derderian, Netflix’s director of anime, this new series has a lot to offer for Transformers fans old and new.

“In this Transformers origin story, we will explore the expansive universe of Cybertron in a way that audiences have never seen before — to the delight of both existing fans and those coming to the franchise for the first time,” he explained.

Tom Warner, Hasbro’s Senior Vice President for the Transformers franchise, also shared his excitement about the project. “We’re thrilled to work with Rooster Teeth’s new premium studio division to bring an all-new Transformers fan-oriented series to Netflix," Warner said. "Transformers has a rich history of great storytelling and War for Cybertron is an exciting new chapter in the Transformers Universe.”
