posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Netflix unveiled a new trailer and cast list for the upcoming Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy: Siege animated series on Saturday. Polygon Pictures is animating the series, and Rooster Teeth is producing. The series of six 22-minute episodes will debut on Netflix this year, and Netflix is teasing two more series, including Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy: Earthrise next.
Netflix describes the series:
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 cast includes:
- Jake Foushee as Optimus Prime
- Jason Marnocha as Megatron
- Linsay Rousseau as Elita-1
- Joe Zieja as Bumblebee
- Frank Todaro as Starscream
