Back in 2020, Warner Bros. actually released a Mortal Kombat movie (Mortal Kombat Legends Scorpion’s Revenge) that’s better than the one we received earlier this year (the live-action Mortal Kombat movie).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Joel McHale and Jennifer will reprise their roles as Johhny Cage and Sonya Blade, respectively, in Mortal Kombat Legends Battle Of The Realms.
Other returning actors include actors Jordan Rodrigues as Liu Kang, Patrick Seitz as Scorpion & Hanzo Hasashi, Artt Butler as Shang Tsung & Cyrax, Robin Atkin Downes as Shinnok & Reiko, Dave B. Mitchell as Raiden, Kintaro & Sektor; Ikè Amadi as Jax Briggs & One Being; Grey Griffin as Kitana, Satoshi Hasashi & Mileena; and Fred Tatasciore as Shao Kahn.
New voice actors include:
- Matthew Mercer as Stryker and 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.
Returning filmmakers include director Ethan Spaulding, screenwriter Jeremy Adams, producers Rick Morales and Jim Krieg, executive producer Sam Register and creative consultant Ed Boon, who tweeted about the news himself.
Fans of the franchise will be happy to learn that the sequel will be R-rated, just like its predecessor.
Excited to finally share the news of another Mortal Kombat animated film. By the same team that made Scorpion's Revenge!
