If you are a devotée of "Mortal Kombat," you'll be happy to know there is an upcoming sequel to the animated films "Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge," and "Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms." The new film is called "Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind," which is another mouthful of a title. IGN has revealed the cast and synopsis for the film.
It's almost the 30th anniversary of the original title from Midway Games and NetherRealm Studios, which is coming up on October 8, 2022. There have been nine games in the franchise, with the most recent being "Mortal Kombat 11." It came out in 2019 and is still extremely playable, in my humble opinion. The games almost seem secondary, though, compared to the numerous live-action films, animated films, comics, music, card games, and more.
"Mortal Kombat" is a violent, gross, and wonderfully cheesy franchise that doesn't take itself too seriously. There are very graphic Fatalities, things called Babalities where you can turn a character into a baby, in-jokes, hidden characters before that was a thing (looking at you, Jade), and so, so much blood. It's a delight. Let's take a look at all the new info on "Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind."
Where And When To Watch Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind
"Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind" will be released on digital and Blu-ray later in 2022. The film will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, which specializes in direct-to-video animated feature films such as this.
What We Think Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind Will Be About
IGN reports that Kano is making everything about him (as he always does) in the new film. He's ready to take over Earthrealm and is destroying towns with three Black Dragon mercenaries. Kenshi, a playable character in the games, is a blind swordsman from Japan in Earthrealm. He isn't ready to surrender to Kano, though. This appears to be the origin story of how a young and undisciplined Kenshi lost his vision, as the site says the blinding happens as Kano and the mercenaries attack him. Kuai Liang, who is currently retired, decides to train Kenshi, despite his misgivings. You may know him by another name: Sub-Zero, one of the game's original fighters.
This sounds really cool, and considering we're also going to see characters like Shang Tsung, Kabal, Kobra, and Tremor, fans who are obsessed with the lore of the franchise are going to be very happy.
What We Know About The Cast And Crew Of Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind
"Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind" is directed and produced by Rick Morales, returning after the first two animated films in this series. Writer Jeremy Adams is back after giving us the screenplays for those titles.
The voice cast for this film is pretty great. Manny Jacinto ("The Good Place") voices the lead role of Kenshi, with David Wenham who played Faramir in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy voicing everyone's favorite jerk Kano. Ron Yuan, the voice of Scorpion in "Mortal Kombat 11," will play Kuai Liang/Sub-Zero. Keith Silverstein (Vector in the "Sonic the Hedgehog" games) is Kabal. Courtenay Taylor (Jack in the "Mass Effect" games) will play Kira. Yuri Lowenthal (Sasuke Uchiha in "Naruto") will voice Kobra. Artt Butler (Captain Ackbar in "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," and Shang Tsung and Cyrax in the last two animated "Mortal Kombat" films) will voice Shang Tsung and Lin Kuei. Imari Williams (Boulder in "Transformers: Rescue Bots") is the voice of Tremor.
Additional voice actors include Patrick Seitz, Lei Yin, Sumalee Montano, Debra Wilson, and Keston John.
