Fans of the long-running Mortal Kombat franchise has a new animated movie to look forward to. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be releasing Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms on Digital, Blu-ray, and 4K UHD Combo Pack come August 31, 2021. I am excited!
Even though the recent live-action Mortal Kombat movie didn’t do it for a number of fans (do read my review), I just know Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms will deliver on action sequences and storytelling. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation in coordination with NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, you can own MKL: Battle of the Realms on Blu-ray for US $29.98 SRP (Canada $39.99 SRP) and as a 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack for US $39.99 SRP (Canada $44.98 SRP). It will also be available on Digital.
Pre-order will be available for the Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack beginning on June 28, 2021, and for Digital starting on July 8, 2021.
The description reads:
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. 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.
Joel McHale and Jennifer Carpenter return to their lead roles as Hollywood star-turned-fighter Johnny Cage and all-business warrior Sonya Blade, respectively. Also returning for the sequel are 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 to the Mortal Kombat Legends voice cast are Matthew Mercer (Critical Role) as Stryker & Smoke; Bayardo De Murguia (Tiny Pretty Things) as Sub-Zero/Kuai Liang; Matt Yang King as Kung Lao; Paul Nakauchi as Lin Kuei Grandmaster; Emily O’Brien as Jade; Debra Wilson as D’Vorah.
Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms has been directed by Ethan Spaulding (Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge, Batman: Assault on Arkham) from a script by Jeremy Adams and is based on the videogame created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. Rick Morales (Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, Batman vs. Two-Face) is a Producer along with Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight). Serving as Executive Producer is Sam Register. Ed Boon (NetherRealm Studios) is credited as the Creative Consultant.
