It’s time for the Autobots to roll out again. Netflix has recently stated that they’re partnering to make a new Transformers animated series that will show fans the origin of Cybertron and of the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. Titled War for Cybertron, Netflix will be teaming up with Polygon Pictures (Transformers: Robots in Disguise) and the digital studio Rooster Teeth (RWBY) to make this new series. Rooster Teeth will help produce it, while Polygon will be the animation house working on the series.
F.J. DeSanto (Transformers: Power of the Primes) will serve as series showrunner, which makes sense considering he’s already been the showrunner for two other Transformers shows. The new series will also feature a new animation style that no other series has had before, which seems interesting since past iterations have run the gauntlet from 2D to 3D animation. So just how exactly the series will look, and even what it will be about; and which classic characters will return, remains to be seen.
Besides some tentative pieces of information, any real meat about this new project is sparse, but that’s to be expected since the show still seems to be in very early pre-production from the sound of it. DeSanto has had success with smaller Transformers animations on the Internet, but it’s yet to be seen if he can handle something as big as this. Also, Polygon Pictures did make Robots in Disguise, but since that series was released to lukewarm reactions there’s no real telling how they’ll do when making this new show for Netflix. All we do know for sure is that Netflix’s track record has been very good with animations, especially with their recent releases of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and The Dragon Prince. Heck, even Rooster Teeth has had moderate success with their anime-inspired action show RWBY, so their collective experiences making and supporting a long-running series could help make this new Transformers cartoon a surprise hit. Transformers: War for Cybertron releases in 2020.
