Bumblebee was a critical success. It has left fans eager to see the Transformers franchise go into a new era. We hear that part of that revolution might happen on Netflix. Netflix, Hasbro, and Rooster Teeth earlier announced a partnership on the upcoming animated series Transformers: War for Cybertron. Now we have a little more information on how that series will be brought to life. At San Diego Comic-Con, Hasbro designer John Warden revealed what fans can expect in War for Cybertron.
Hasbro, Netflix and Rooster Teeth in a partnership
“You know, it’s really exciting to be part of Transformers history right now because the toys are super exciting to work on,” Warden said. “But having partners to work with, you know, Wizards of the Coast to do a customizable card game, the great comic books, the stories being told in comic books, and now with our partnership with Netflix.”
“We’re able to bring to life the story of the War for Cybertron trilogy, and if you think about being able to tell those stories of the Autobots and the Deceptions and the battlefields.” Warden continued. “ It’s their last moments on Cybertron. The decisions that are made, and being able to bring the story to life on that medium, I mean. Everything we do is, we’re very story-focused, and I think trying to find other mediums – whether it’s video games or Netflix – it just makes everything about our franchise stronger. Because not only are we talking to the G1 fans like me, but we’re also talking potentially to a whole new group of fans out there, and it’s just an exciting time to be a part of it.”
“New animation look and style”
“We’re thrilled to work with Rooster Teeth’s new premium studio division to bring an all-new Transformers fan-oriented series to Netflix,” Tom Warner, Hasbro’s Senior Vice President for the Transformers franchise had said when the series was first announced. “Transformers has a rich history of great storytelling and War for Cybertron is an exciting new chapter in the Transformers Universe.”
