Transformers: War for Cybertron — Earthrise Trailer Released

war for cybertron

Netflix has been teaming up with the gang at Rooster Teeth to produce a trilogy of Transfomer miniseries chronicling their origin and why exactly they’re on Earth instead of their homeworld of Cybertron. We know they’re here because they wrecked it, but we haven’t seen how.

Rooster Teeth is telling that story. Transformers: War For Cybertron launched last July with Siege, six episodes of metal on metal and robot civil war. Faced with the relentless onslaught of the Decepticons, the Autobots decided at the climax that the only way to protect the Allspark was to hide it somewhere else. Thus begins their journey to Earth, and the second chapters collectively titled Earthrise.

The Decepticons have no intention of letting Optimus get away that easily, especially if he’s got the Allspark with him, and they send their own cruiser after the Autobots. In the meantime, the remaining good ‘bots on Cybetron are trying to hold the line as best they can.

This time, however, it’s not just the Autobots who are fighting to survive. Megatron, believing the Cybertron war is now in the bag with the team scattered, has no clue of the target on his own back. Galvatron is on the way, and burning to take Megatron’s place as Decepticon leader. And…if that’s supposed to be planet-destroyer Unicron in that one shot, it’ll get far worse before it gets better. Turn up the sound and try to listen for complaints about frozen peas.

War For Cybertron stars Jake Foushee as Optimus Prime, Jason Marnocha as Megatron, Linsay Rousseau as Elita-1, Joe Zieja as Bumblebee, Frank Todaro as Starscream, Rafael Goldstein as Ratchet, Keith Silverstein as Jetfire, and Todd Haberkorn as Shockwave.

Transformers: War for Cybertron — Earthrise comes to our planet just before New Year’s. Check it out on Netflix December 30.
