Netflix’s War For Cybertron anime trilogy is receiving massive critical acclaim. Many fans claim that the Netflix trilogy manages to capture the essence of the Transformers franchise, something its predecessors failed to do. And from official sources, it is confirmed that the finale installment to the War For Cybertron trilogy is going to be one hell of a ride. And that is because a fan favorite Transformers animated series is also going to be a part of it. The Final entry to Netflix’s Transformers: War For Cybertron will include the universally acclaimed Beast Wars as a part of its mythos.
And whom do we need to thank for leaking out this vital piece of information? Why Hasbro of course!!

The highly acclaimed Beast Wars series premiered in the year of 1996. It was very well-received by the fans because of the use of revolutionary CGI Technology. It went so far as to win a Daytime Emmy Award next year in 1997. Beast Wars later spawned a sequel show titled Beast Machines, that failed to live up to fans’ expectations. Transformers: War For Cybertron is bringing back the Predacons and the Maximals for another bout to decide the fate of Cybertron.
Netflix’sTransformers: War For Cybertron is a fresh and unique take on the battle between Autobots and the Decepticons. The toy line also takes many leaves and cues from other acclaimed series in the entire Transformers franchise. Other Computer Generated anime series by Rooster Teeth (RWBY, Red vs. Blue) are also inspired by the show and distributed by Netflix. The War For Cybertron trilogy will have three entries. The second and third entries titled Earth Rise and Kingdom, are yet to receive official premiere dates.

The fate of the entire universe is at stake.
