February 19th, 2019 by Marc Comments

With the news of the Ghostbusters/Transformers crossover coming this summer (here) and then the confirmation that, as hoped, Bumblebee is in fact the start of a new Transformers franchise (here) we almost forgot this cool bit of TF news…

It’s been confirmed that Netflix has ordered an animated Transformers prequel series, War For Cybertron and it will arrive early next year.

The series will be created by Netflix, Hasbro and Rooster Teeth with Polygon Pictures as the animation studio.

“In this Transformers origin story, we 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,” said John Derderian, Director of Anime for Netflix.

“The Transformers brand is a global phenomenon and we are thrilled to partner with Hasbro, Rooster Teeth and Polygon to bring this exciting new series to our members around the world on Netflix.”

The series promises to be unlike any Transformers we’ve seen before… and that sounds good to us.

Prepare to roll out…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
