Preceded by Mortal Kombat: Rebirth

With the "concept trailer", Mortal Kombat: Rebirth director Kevin Tancharoen, who, without the studio's participation in the making of the short, showed Warner Bros. (who holds the rights to Mortal Kombat) what he would do, if given the chance to make a new Mortal Kombat feature film.

Warner Bros. took notice of Tancharoen's work and the positive attention it got, and though a movie was not the result, a 9-episode Mortal Kombat webseries titled Mortal Kombat: Legacy is. Tancharoen, Michael Jai White, Jeri Ryan, and Matt Mullins reprise their roles from the short as Jax, Sonya Blade, and Johnny Cage respectively. All actors are either American or Canadian.

Bloody Disgusting writes, "The only plot details we could conjure up is that a few Earthlings will fight to save the planet from Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung, two Gods ruling over parallel universes, or something to that effect.[1]

About the seriesEdit

The series features one or two-part episodes focusing on one character or a group of characters each. The episodes detail the origin stories of many popular MK characters, the events more or less following the established canon, with dramatic changes to some details.

Contrary to the ultra-real, gritty, crime-story tone seen in MK: Rebirth, Legacy is more Tancharoen's take on the established storyline, including much of the east-Asian inspired mysticism and fantasy elements present in the games (except episode 6, where Tancharoen recreated his own vision from Rebirth). The characters also follow the aspects and storylines of their videogame counterparts much more closely than the interpretations seen in Rebirth. [2]

Mortal Kombat Legacy Season 2 Announcement

Season 2 Announcment

In an interview with Movieweb, Tancharoen revealed several elements in the future of Mortal Kombat: Legacy. On the  creative agenda, he has spoken to Warner Bros. about a second season, stating he is always working on stories and would prefer to work with the same cast and crew. Season two would concern the tenth Mortal Kombat tournament, as was portrayed in the original video game, but with a different story and outcome to that seen in the game and the first film. Also concerning a second season, he spoke about the prospect of introducing Goro and the method for which he could be portrayed believably, and better than in the film.

The introduction of Kabal was also raised. He also has hopes for a movie, confirming he has a "very detailed treatment, that plots out the entire storyline". Regarding a movie, he told IGN that it would not focus on trying to include as many franchise characters as possible the way the second film did. Warner Premiere’s general manager Eva Semple David mooted television as a possible medium on which the series could continue.

Season 2 has been announced by IGN, with director Kevin Tancharoen stating personally in a video to fans that all of the scripts are done.[3] The director also confirmed more fight scenes and improved special effects in the upcoming season to focus on the actual Mortal Kombat tournament of the original game, in response to the fans who were let down by the setup of the first season. Characters confirmed for this season are as follows: Kano, Liu Kang, Raiden, Johnny Cage, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Sonya, Kung Lao, Kitana, Mileena, Jax, Baraka, Stryker, Shang Tsung, Quan Chi, Ermac and Kenshi. Kevin also stated on twitter that the feature film is still in development and that season 2 would not affect it. On Febuary 17, 2013 a trailer was released showcasing all the confirmed characters.[4] At the 2013 San Diego Comic Con, Tancharoen noted that they couldn't get Jeri Ryan back as Sonya Blade due to her busy schedule but hope to include her in Season 3. Others that won't be seen will be Goro - he said they wrote a script for him but couldn't include it due to budget constraints. Kabal, while not joining the fray this year, was announced for Season 3, which hasn't been officially announced but certainly is sounding likely. [5] On September 13, 2013 the official launching date for Season 2 was set on 26 September, 2013. On March 27, 2014, Tancharoen told Nerd Reactor that both he and Warner Bros are still planning season 3 with him directing. [6] Casper Van Dien posten a photo on his Facebook account of himself with the post message "It has begun! #MKL3 training at 6000 feet above Sea Level".[7] Van Dien later tweeted on Twitter page that Caity Lotz may joined the cast.[8] Van Dien then posted a photo of him and co-star Dacascos with the message "Training for Mortal Kombat with @Mark_Dacascos."[9]

TriviaEdit

  • Episode 3: Johnny Cage - Ed Boon makes a cameo appearance as Ed Goodman.
  • Episodes 7 & 8: Scorpion & Sub-Zero -  Scorpion's Spear appears in the episode, used to pull Sub-Zero to him. He even yelled "GET OVER HERE!" in Japanese when he used it.
  • In the second season, some of the quotes are in fact battle cries from Mortal Kombat (2011).
  • Episode 9: Cyrax and Sektor - In the first trailer, Cyrax and Sektor were shown without CGI graphic effects, but later, on July 24, 2011, the scene appeared with computer graphics.
    • Kano also makes an appearance without his cybernetic eye implant, suggesting this episode precedes episode one.
    • The cyborgs Hydro, Cyrax, and Sektor all share Cyrax's primary design from Mortal Kombat (2011).
    • Roughly all of the text on the computer monitor detailing the helmet design is taken in verbatim from this document.
