Skull Island trailer: Monsterverse animated series reaches Netflix this month

Netflix has released a full trailer for the animated Monsterverse series Skull Island, which reaches the streaming service this month

On June 22nd, Legendary Entertainment and the Netflix streaming service will be bringing us “a new epic chapter in Legendary’s Monsterverse franchise” in the form of a Kong animated series called Skull Island. Two weeks out from the show’s premiere, a full trailer has been released online and can be seen in the embed above.

Brian Duffield, writer of the genre films The Babysitter, Spontaneous, Underwater, and Love and Monsters, is a writer and executive producer on Skull Island. The animated series will center on a group of explorers that find themselves on a collision course with strange beasts, terrifying Titans and the most mysterious island the world has ever known!

We had previously heard that the leads of the show are shipwrecked characters who are desperate to survive the most dangerous place on Earth, the island that is home to colossal monsters, including the iconic “megaprimatus” Kong.

The voice cast includes Nicolas Cantu (The Fabelmans) as Charlie, Mae Whitman (Family Guy) as Annie, Darren Barnett (Never Have I Ever) as Mike, Benjamin Bratt (Poker Face) as Cap, Phil LaMarr (Pulp Fiction) as Sam, Fryda Wolff (TrollsTopia) as Island Girl, and Betty Gilpin (Mrs. Davis) as Irene.

Jacob Robinson of the production company Tractor Pants is executive producing Skull Island alongside Duffield, Brad Graeber, Jen Chambers, and Thomas Tull. The animation is being handled by Powerhouse Animation, the studio behind Netflix’s Castlevania anime series. This project is separate from Netflix’s previous animated Kong show, Kong: King of the Apes, which ran for two seasons on the streaming service.

In addition to the film Kong: Skull Island (watch it HERE), the Monsterverse also includes 2014’s Godzilla, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and Godzilla vs. Kong. There is a Godzilla TV series in the works at Apple TV+, and the Godzilla vs. Kong follow-up Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is set to reach theatres and IMAX on March 15, 2024.
