Last summer, director Kevin Tancheroen unleashed his trailer for Mortal Kombat Rebirth. He showed a much darker and grittier version of Mortal Kombat than we’ve seen in the past. Quickly, the video went viral and fans wanted more. We haven’t heard anything about it til now. Here’s more about the episode:
When Jax realizes time is of the essence to save Sonya, a fellow lieutenant in the Outworld Investigation Agency, from Kano’s deadly hand, he holds nothing back in this action-packed, two-on-one battle to keep a shipment of stolen Robotic Defense Program material out of Kano’s hands. But can Jax and Sonya do it? Kano is a ruthless, evil leader of the “Black Dragon” international crime organization, and anyone who’s tried to take him down has never lived to tell about it!
The week before the Mortal Kombat 9 video game comes out, a new live action web series “Mortal Kombat Legacy” directed by Kevin Tancheroen has been released. The Waner Bros.-backed series is rated TV-MA for profanity and violence. Some of the same people from Mortal Kombat Rebirth are back Jax (Michael Jai White) and Sonya Blade (Jeri Ryan) along with new characters Kurtis Stryker (Tahmoh Penikett) and Kano (Darren Shahlavi). The first video has plenty of action alongside special effects. (Supposedly episode 2 will have Sonya Blade kicking ass and a showdown between Jax and Kano.) A total of nine episodes have been created for Season 1. Confirmed characters for season 1 include Johnny Cage (Matt Mullins), Scorpion (Ian Anthony Dale), and Kitana (Sam Tjhia). Mortal Kombat Legacy just started and Season 2 is expected to have Liu Kang and Kung Lao. Stay tuned for the future episodes.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy brings to life the complex and rich history of the gaming world of MORTAL KOMBAT. Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung are obsessed with reigning over various realms (parallel universes) and the winners of Mortal Kombat competitions are granted supreme control over these worlds. The Earthrealm (Earth) is an unconscious participant in this competition and only a few select humans understand the consequences of losing Mortal Kombat and what it will mean to Earth. In a universe with powerful evil sorcerers, cyborgs, Gods and movie stars, this Mortal Kombat digital media series drives a cohesive understanding of what this Universe is all about.
