Skull Island: Kong and the MonsterVerse Get Animated in Netflix’s Teaser Trailer
Check out the first teaser trailer for the animated Skull Island series in the Kong/MonsterVerse, now available on Netflix starting June 22.
Netflix and Legendary Pictures have released our first look at the new Kong/MonsterVerse animated series Skull Island. The highly anticipated new series has been in development for quite some time now. And although we’ve seen a few fleeting teaser images, it’s been a minute since we heard anything major. But thankfully, that all changed today. Kong is back! And he’s ready to take on the hordes of monsters dominating the hollow earth.
The Skull Island animated series will center on a group of explorers that find themselves on a collision course with strange beasts, terrifying Titans, and the most mysterious island the world has ever known! An island dominated by the Eighth Wonder of the World…King Kong! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Grab your mosquito spray and venture to Kong’s domain below!
As if the new trailer wasn’t enough to have us roaring like a Titan, the streamer also shared the first poster for the series. And as expected it is packed with monsters, kaiju’s, titans, humans…and KONG! Check it out below.
The voice cast includes Nicolas Cantu (The Fabelmans) as Charlie, Mae Whitman (Family Guy) as Annie, Darren Barnett (Never Have I Ever) as Mike, Benjamin Bratt (Poker Face) as Cap, Phil LaMarr (Pulp Fiction) as Sam, Fryda Wolff (TrollsTopia) as Island Girl, and Betty Gilpin (Mrs. Davis) as Irene. Powerhouse Animation will produce the animation for the series after a successful spell with Netflix’s Castlevania anime series.
The new series is the next installment in Legendary’s shared MonsterVerse. The kaiju-packed creature universe boasts the brilliance of Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla, Godzilla King of the Monsters, Godzilla vs Kong, and the recently announced Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire. The latter of which will roar into cinemas in March 2024.
In the meantime, MonsterVerse fans can get their kaiju fix when Skull Island roars onto Netflix on June 22.
