Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy – Siege is premiering on Netflix on July 30th.
Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy – Siege is the first film in Netflix’s Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy and is set to release on the streaming platform on July 30th. From the information available, the trilogy will focus on the final hours of Cybertron, before the Transformers make their way to Earth and the ultimate decision to destroy Cybertron is made. The trilogy is poised to be full of action and drama. Here’s the official read out from Netflix
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. I can’t find much more information other than that. I also don’t feel like much more information is needed. [via Netflix]
This trailer is pretty epic. The animation has a perfect blend of drawn and CGI that gloriously captures the advanced beings the Transformers are. The stakes are extremely high and it is felt in the narration and in the harrowing scenes. The action also seems amazingly choreographed, which is something I feel the Bay films did really well. Something about these massive machines having the fluid combat of seasoned martial artists really amps of the cool factor.
There are two downsides to this trailer, that aren’t deal-breakers in any way; really just personal noticing. First, not enough Bumblebee. This the first trailer and really is no reason to think it will affect the film in any way. If anything, there probably won’t be too much Bumblebee as his role really expands after Cybertron in most lores. Again, just a personal notice that really has no effect on anything. Second, not the original voice cast. Again, not a deal-breaker, but considering the Gen 1 designs, it would have felt fitting to have as much of the original casts as possible to add that extra layer of flare.
Even with my unreasonable wishes, Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy – Siege, looks to be an epic chapter in Transformers history. I can’t wait to watch it!
