It seems like Netflix is in love with their anime spin-offs because now Kong Skull Island will be getting one. The new anime series will be called Skull Island and will continue the stories of the myths on the island.
Here’s what Deadline said:
Skull Island will be a new chapter in Legendary’s Monsterverse franchise and much like the 2017 Jordan Vogt-Roberts- directed movie Kong: Skull Island, the animated series will follow the adventures of shipwrecked characters that are trying to escape from the mysterious dangerous titular island home to prehistoric monsters, including the titan, Mr. Kong.
Legendary’s Monsterverse kicked off in 2014 with Godzilla and then Kong: Skull Island followed by Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019. Things will come to a head in the next Monsterverse chapter with Godzilla vs. Kong which recently released a catastrophically jaw-dropping trailer. The new animated series will continue the story of these monsters and myths.
Brian Duffield (Underwater, The Babysitter) who will write and executive produce the anime series alongside Jacob Robinson who will executive producer under his company Tractor Pants. The animation studio behind Skull Island is Powerhouse Animation which is the company behind Castlevania and Blood of Zeus.
It’s going to be cool to see what monsters are on Skull Island. Also, Powerhouse Animation being involved is going to be great because the Castlevania anime series looked good. Skull Island being an anime is an interesting call, and I was surprised this wasn’t an HBO Max series. I guess we’ll wait and see what new info will come out for the series.
