Knights of Sidonia anime studio Polygon Pictures is returning to the bottomless Transformers well to kick off a new Netflix original trilogy. The first one has them teaming up with Rooster Teeth (RWBY), which is in charge of producing Transformers: War for Cybertron: Siege, consisting of six 22-minute episodes.
Siege is coming to Netflix this year, and two more series have already been teased after it, including Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy: Earthrise. Check out the trailer for Siege while we wait for it to premiere:
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.
