It's been a long time coming, but the first trailer for Netflix's Skull Island animated series has finally been released (via Toonado.com).
Brian Duffield (Underwater) executive produces and writes the series, while Jacob Robinson also executive produces. In terms of confirmed cast members, Mae Whitman will play Annie, a woman who is rescued from a group of explorers that stumble across the treacherous Skull Island.
Also lending their voices to the series are Darren Barnett as Mike, Benjamin Bratt as Cap, and Betty Gilpin as Irene.
The official synopsis describes Skull Island as a "thrilling animated adventure series, follow[ing] shipwrecked characters desperate to escape the most dangerous place on Earth - a mysterious island home to prehistoric monsters, including the greatest Titan of them all, Kong."
Both the trailer and poster showcase the sort of threats these survivors will encounter when they visit Kong's home, but the King himself is understandably put front and centre.
Skull Island is all part of Netflix's plan to expand the MonsterVerse, with a live-action Apple TV+ series on the way along with Godzilla vs. Kong sequel Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.
We're definitely intrigued to see what gaps this particular story fills in and how it informs the rest of the stories being told. The animation style is similar to the DC Animated Universe movies and definitely appears to do these monsters justice!
Skull Island premieres on Netflix on June 22.
