Entertainment Weekly has posted the first trailer for the upcoming Boulder Media Studio series Transformers: Cyberverse. The trailer is a brand new version of the footage shown at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
Additionally, Cartoon Network is also airing a commercial announcing the United States airdate (September 15th) for the show. However, you can check out the first episode by logging into the Cartoon Network app on August 27th (region locked).
“The designs for Decepticons Megatron, Soundwave, Starscream, and heroic Autobots Bumblebee and Optimus Prime are direct homages to the after school cartoons that started airing in 1984.
“When we were designing the look and feel of Transformers: Cyberverse, we were inspired by the classic clean appearance of the original G1-style,” Tom Warner, Senior VP for the Transformers franchise at Hasbro, which is producing the series. “This was the design we initially fell in love with in the ‘80s and it felt like the perfect fit for this new origin story.”
The show features Jeremy Levy as the voice of Bumblebee, and Jake Tillman as Optimus Prime. Ryan Andes voices the dinobot Grimlock, while Sophia Isabella is Windblade, who is helping Bumblebee unlock his damaged memory bank.
On the side of the bad guys, Marc Thopson voices megalomaniacal Megatron, Billy Bob Thompson is the duplicitous jet Starscream, Andes pulls double-duty as cyclopian Shockwave, and Deanna McGovern is Shadowstriker.”
