As announced, the Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms trailer picks up after the events of the 2020 animated hit, Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge. Based on the popular videogame franchise, the films feature all the strange and cool warriors from the beloved violent fighter.
As the Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms trailer shows, Shao Kahn is all about kicking-ass and putting Earth’s best fighters in their place. Watch below as he goes up against Lui Kang, Raiden, Sonya, Kung Loa, Jax, Striker and Johnny Cage in battle. It’s all going down in another Mortal Kombat tournament.
In Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms, our team of heroes is besieged by the enemy forces of Shao Kahn – forcing Raiden and his group of warriors into a deal to compete in a final Mortal Kombat that will determine the fate of the realms.
Now our heroes must travel to Outworld in order to defend Earthrealm and, simultaneously, Scorpion must find the ancient Kamidogu before it’s used to resurrect the One Being – which would mean certain destruction of all things in the universe.
Time is short and the stakes are high in this action-packed continuation of the Mortal Kombat journey.
The new instalment will reunite director Ethan Spaulding, screenwriter Jeremy Adams and the voice cast of the 2020 film, which includes Jennifer Carpenter as Sonya Blade, Jordan Rodrigues as Liu Kang, Joel McHale as Johnny Cage, Patrick Seitz as Scorpion / Hanzo Hasashi, Artt Butler as Shang Tsung & Cyrax, Robin Atkin Downes as Shinnok & Reiko, Dave B. Mitchell as Raiden, and Kintaro & Sektor, among others.
As you can see in the Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms trailer, the movie will also add new characters and, of course, new voice actors, including Matthew Mercer as Stryker & Smoke, Bayardo De Murguia as Sub-Zero/Kuai Liang, Matt Yang King as Kung Lao, Paul Nakauchi as Lin Kuei Grandmaster, Emily O’Brien as Jade and Debra Wilson as D’Vorah.
Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge earned $2,634,695 from home video sales, $508,501 from domestic DVD sales and $2,126,194 from domestic Blu-ray sales. It’s no surprise then that Warner quickly ordered a sequel.
Again, as the Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms trailer reveals, the next instalment in the franchise arrives August 31, 2021. That’s pretty soon!
Count us in. We can’t wait for more kick-ass animation action.
