The first trailer for the upcoming animated Mortal Kombat movie, Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge, is here! Despite the name, the trailer for the R-rated animated film seems to largely follow the basic premise of the franchise with a tournament between worlds featuring a whole mess of different fighters. Oh, and that includes Goro.
Other classic Mortal Kombat characters featured in the first-look trailer include Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Liu Kang, Kano, Sonya Blade, Johnny Cage, Shang Tsung, and more. It's honestly a fairly stacked lineup, and while there's mostly character introductions with some brief action, the trailer actually looks pretty good, overall.
Here's the voice cast, courtesy of IGN:
- Joel McHale as Johnny Cage
- Jennifer Carpenter as Sonya Blade
- Jordan Rodrigues as Lui Kang
- Patrick Seitz as Scorpion & Hanzo Hasashi
- Steve Blum as Sub-Zero
- Artt Butler as Shang Tsung
- Darin De Paul as Quan Chi
- Robin Atkin Downes as Kano
- David B. Mitchell as Raiden
- Ike Amadi as Jax Briggs
- Kevin Michael Richardson as Goro
- Grey Griffin as Kitana & Satoshi Hasashi
- Fred Tatasciore as Demon Torturer

Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge is set to release Spring 2020 on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital. There is currently no specific release date announced for the animated film, nor do we know exactly how much it will cost. Pure speculation based on these sort of direct-to-home video releases would place it around the $19.99 range, but who knows for sure. The upcoming live-action Mortal Kombat movie is set to release on January 15, 2021, a release date that was recently moved up by several months.
