WATCH: The Monsterverse grows in new trailer for Skull Island anime series

June 12th, 2023 by Marc Comments

The first TV series based in the Monsterverse is almost here as the trailer drops for anime series Skull Island featuring everyone’s favourite giant primate, King Kong!

Following on from the story set up in Godzilla (2014), Kong: Skull Island (2017), Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) and Godzilla vs Kong (2021), this is the first time the franchise has landed on the small screen but certainly isn’t the last as we already have Kurt Russell’s live-action Godzilla and the Titans series on the horizon.

It really does seem like you can’t keep a good monster(verse) down.

Welcome back to his island.

The next chapter of the Monsterverse begins. The anime series centers on a group of characters who find themselves shipwrecked on a dangerous and mysterious island. This island is home to a variety of bizarre creatures and terrifying monsters, including the mighty King Kong. Their primary goal is to escape from this perilous environment and survive the challenges that await them.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
