Earlier this month, Warner Bros confirmed that there was another Mortal Kombat movie in the works with Scorpion's Revenge, an animated experience that is meant to be the ultimate homage to previous Mortal Kombat cinematic experiences. At the time of the initial reveal, we didn't have any concrete details other than some of the cast, but now we've got all the deets for what Scorpion's Revenge entails.
The full-length animated feature film will be produced by Warner Bros. Animation in conjunction with NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. As for when the new Mortal Kombat experience will arrive, Scorpion's Revenge is slated for an April 12th release as a digital purchase with a 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blue-Ray on April 28th.
As for Scorpion's Revenge narrative details, Warner Bros. tells Prima Games: "Based on the worldwide hit game created by Ed Boon & John Tobias, Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge spotlights the once-in-a-generation tournament between the champions of Outworld and Earthrealm – a competition that will ultimately determine the fate of Earth and all its citizens. Lord Raiden, protector of Earthrealm, must gather the greatest fighters of his realm to defend it from the evil Shang Tsung in the battle to end all battles - Mortal Kombat!"
The cast includes both new and familiar voices for some of our favorite Mortal Kombat kharacters. Joel McHale (Community, The CW’s upcoming Stargirl) and Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) are at the forefront of this incredible cast as the voices of Hollywood star-turned-fighter Johnny Cage and all-business warrior Sonya Blade. The cast also includes voices from franchises like Mass Effect 3, World of Wars, Batman: The Killing Joke, Cowboy Bebop, Star Wars Rebels, and so much more.
“Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge is a riveting, no-holds-barred action-fest that delivers all the authentic combat, drama and humor fans expect coupled with edgy animation and an outstanding voice cast,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Senior Vice President, Originals, Animation and Family Marketing. “This film is unlike anything Warner Bros. has produced before, and fans should be prepared for the thrill ride of their lives.”
Mortal Kombat: Scorpion's Revenge officially drops on April 12th, including streaming services such as Apple TV, Amazon, FandangoNOW, PlayStation, Vudo, Xbox, and more. For physical copies of the new Mortal Kombat movie, that will be arriving on April 20th.
