The first installment of the Transformers: War for Cybertron trilogy is all set to land on Netflix in 30July.
Transformers: Siege, the first chapter of the series tells the story of the hours of the great civil war of Cybertron. The Autobots and Decepticons have ravaged their homeworld of Cybertron in the war; in an attempt to tip the balance, Decepticons leader Megatron decides to use the Allspark to reformat his enemies.
With their backs against the wall, the Autobots have no option but to destroy their home planet in order to save it. The first chapter will feature six, twenty-two-minute episodes.
The series, which will debut as a part of a trilogy that will be split into installments of six twenty two minute episodes each, is something of a prequel to the events of the original series, following Optimus Prime and Megatron as they lead their two armies in a war on their home planet of Cybertron. The plot is suggested to take these main characters eventually to Earth, possibly by the end of the first act. Part two, which is currently named Earthrise, will then follow, after which part three (yet to be named) will draw a conclusion to the Netflix Original.
