Fans can’t wait for the upcoming animated series Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, which was teased by a groundbreaking first look but won’t come out until at least 2023. In the meantime, fans may want to watch the new animated series Skull Island on Netflix all at once. The trailer shows this is a spin-off of Kong: Skull Island and looks much like that movie.
Brian Duffled wrote the upcoming Netflix show Skull Island, featuring well-known voice actors like Nicolas Cantu, Betty Gilpin, and Mae Whitman. The show will be available in English and Japanese, but Netflix hasn’t said anything about the cast in Japan. Skull Island should be worth your time, even if you have not seen the other MonsterVerse movies. So, here’s everything we know about the show, including what it’s about, who’s in it, when it’s coming out, and a trailer.

Skull Island: Release Date
I am pleased to inform you that the highly anticipated MonsterVerse anime series, Skull Island, has an official debut date of June 22 on the popular streaming platform Netflix. Fans of the franchise can look forward to immersing themselves in a thrilling and action-packed adventure set in the eponymous location, as they follow a diverse cast of characters through exciting and dangerous situations. Mark your calendars and get ready for an unforgettable journey into the world of Skull Island!
Skull Island Plot
The story is about a group of eager explorers who lose their ship and end up on a deserted island called “Skull Island.” When they get there, they find the island full of strange animals and people who don’t like that they are still alive.
Annie, a member of the group, is taken by someone. Charlie, the anime’s main character, and the rest of the group set out to find Annie. No matter how hard they try, it seems like nothing can leave the island because the sea is full of monsters like the Kraken, which is seen tearing apart a helicopter that was supposed to help the explorers. So, how will the group get back home, or better yet, how will they get to safety?
The plot summary for the anime can be found on the official website of Legendary Entertainment. Here’s how it goes:
Skull Island is a thrilling animated adventure series that follows a group of good-hearted explorers who fish a drowning girl out of the ocean, having no idea that they’ve found themselves on a collision course with Skull Island — the most dangerous place on Earth — the mysterious home to strange beasts and terrifying monsters, including the greatest titan of them all: Kong.

The series feels like a retelling of the 2017 movie Kong: Skull Island. Many creatures try to catch the new explorers, but Kong saves them. Even though the teaser didn’t say so directly, it’s safe to assume that Kong is friendly based on how things work in MonsterVerse.
