Fans of the long-running Mortal Kombat franchise have a new animated film to look forward to this year. Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind will be released on Digital on October 9, 2022. It will be followed by a 4K UHD and Blu-ray debut on October 11, 2022. I’m excited!
Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind has been made by Warner Bros. Animation in coordination with NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Games. The premise is about a “shattered hero” needing to “overcome battle-inflicted blindness” to save Earthrealm.
From Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, the 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack can be yours for USD $29.99 SRP (CAD $34.99 SRP). You can buy the Blu-ray+Digital for USD $24.99 SRP (Blu-ray CAD $29.99 SRP). The Digital version will be available for $19.99.
Take note; the 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in 4K with HDR, a Blu-ray disc featuring the film in hi-definition, and a digital version of the movie. Do know that Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind will also be available on Movies Anywhere.
The description reads:
Inspired by the worldwide video game sensation now celebrating its 30th anniversary, Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind finds vicious, power-mad Kano determined to take over Earthrealm, one soul at a time. Assisted by a trio of cold Black Dragon mercenaries, he embarks on a brutal assault from town to defenseless town. The choice is simple: Kneel or be annihilated. But when the cocky and talented but undisciplined Kenshi doesn’t take a knee, Kano and his clan destroy the young warrior, taking his eyesight and his confidence. Under the tutelage of reluctant, retired Kuai Liang, the only one powerful enough to challenge the malevolent Kano, Kenshi finds renewed hope and a clear path to redemption. But will it be enough to stop Kano from decimating all of Earthrealm?
The cast includes Manny Jacinto and David Wenham as Kenshi Takahashi and Kano, respectively. Returning from previous installments of the film series are Patrick Seitz as Scorpion, Artt Butler as Shang Tsung, and Debra Wilson as Graji. New to the MKL films is Ron Yuan as Kuai Liang, Imari Williams as Tremor, Yuri Lowenthal as Kobra, Courtenay Taylor as Kira, Keith Silverstein as Kabal, Sumalee Montano as Kindra, and Lei Yin as Peter & Sento.
Here’s the action-packed trailer!
The film has been produced and directed by Rick Morales (Mortal Kombat Legends franchise, Injustice) from a script by Jeremy Adams (Justice Society: World War II), who also penned the screenplays for the first two films in the series. All three movies are based on the iconic video game created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. Jim Krieg is a Producer. Sam Register and NetherRealm Studios’ Ed Boon serve as Executive Producers.
The Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind Special Features for Digital, 4K UHD Blu-ray Combo Pack, and Blu-ray are:

- Deleted Animatics – Get a behind-the-scenes look at a few intriguing scenes that were included in the initial assembly of the film, but didn’t quite make it to the final cut.
- Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind Audio Commentary (Audio Only) – Join producer/director Rick Morales and screenwriter Jeremy Adams for a feature-length audio commentary revealing the creative choices used to bring the all-new animated feature to the screen.
The upcoming movie has an approximate running time of 82 minutes. It has been Rated R for strong bloody violence and gore throughout, and brief language.
I’m so here for the Mortal Kombat Legends animated franchise continuing in such a fashion. Give me a new MKL movie every year. Do make sure to read my review of 2020’s MKL: Scorpion’s Revenge and 2021’s MKL: Battle of the Realms.
As for the lead of the latest installment, Kenshi Takahashi made his debut way back in 2002 during Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. I would never have guessed the creative team would give Kenshi his own animated movie, but I’m not complaining.
