There's a New TRANSFORMERS Animated Series Coming From Netflix and Rooster Teeth
Netflix and Hasbro have partnered with Rooster Teeth develop a new Transformers animated trilogy series that will launch in 2020. The series is called Transformers: War For Cybertron, and it’s said to come complete with a new animation look and style.
John Derderian, Director of Anime for Netflix, offered some details on the series saying that is is a Transformers origin story that “will explore the expansive universe of Cybertron in a way that audiences have never seen before - to the delight of both existing fans and those coming to the franchise for the first time.”
Tom Warner, Senior Vice President for the Transformers franchise for Hasbro added:
“We're thrilled to work with Rooster Teeth’s new premium studio division to bring an all-new Transformers fan-oriented series to Netflix. Transformers has a rich history of great storytelling and War for Cybertron is an exciting new chapter in the Transformers Universe.”
Rooster Teeth is best known for their animated shows RWBY and gen:LOCK, and they will be working with the animation studio Polygon Pictures (Godzilla, Knights of Sidonia). FJ DeSanto (Transformers: Titans Return, Transformers: Power of the Primes) will serve as showrunner on the series, and he will be joined by several writers that include George Krstic (Megas XLR), Gavin Hignight (Transformers: Cyberverse), and Brandon Easton (Agent Carter, Transformers: Rescue Bots).
It will be interesting to see what comes of this. I’m curious to see what the new style of the series is going to look like. Most importantly, I hope that the stories the tell are great and the the characters they introduce us to are cool!
