Transformers has been a franchise that all of us have grown up with. We’ve all seen their show, gone to the theatre to catch their films and begged our parents to buy their toys.
Its concept of robots in disguise has sent us on multiple searches looking to confirm if our car can transform into an alien robot.
The Autobots under Optimus Prime and Decepticons under Megatron have been battling for ages. This battle to protect or rule Cybertron has often reached our planet and made it a battlefield.
Transformers: War for Cybertron is a trilogy that will take the series back to its origin to tell its viewers the tale of how these aliens lost their home planet.
Netflix announced that the first installment of the Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy titled “Siege” will debut on the OTT platform from July 30th.
The show was initially set to debut in June but got delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Actress Linsay Rousseau who is the Voice of Elita-1 had previously commented through her Instagram post that:
“due to the quarantine, they didn’t finish the foreign dubs for the show,”
She also revealed that Netflix needed to complete all the foreign dubs before premiering the show to release it simultaneously in all languages.
The series is being animated by Polygon Pictures who had previously animated the franchise’s popular shows Transformers Prime and Transformers: Robots in Disguise. It is also being produced by Rooster Teeth.

- Jake Foushee as Optimus Prime

Netflix describes Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy: Siege as:
“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.”
