Although the last Mortal Kombat title release back in 2019, the series is on a high-note currently. For one, the titular live-action movie hit theaters alongside HBO Max back in April this spring. However, there is still more to come to the series in terms of entertainment. For one, a sequel to Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge is on the way.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Ethan Spaulding is to reprise his role for the follow-up alongside Jeremy Adams to screenwrite with Rick Morales & Jim Krieg producing and Sam Register to executively produce. Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon is also to be a creative consultant for the coming animated feature as well.

On Twitter, Boon went to show the cover for the new film, Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle for the Realms. The production is told to ship later this August.

“Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms” picks up shortly after the explosive finale of Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge, the 2020 blockbuster hit that initiated these animated films – which are based on one of the most popular videogame franchises in history,” reads the overview from the press release by Warner Bros. Animation.

“In “Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms”, our team of heroes are 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.”

Recently, it was revealed in an interview with HBO Max executive Brad Wilson that the Mortal Kombat live-action movie is one of the platform’s “top assets” in the first year of it releasing. You can read the full report by heading here.
