Netflix has been absolutely overrun with original anime series lately, and a new collaboration with production company Legendary Entertainment will add two more. Two series based on Kong: Skull Island and the recent trilogy of video game reboots Tomb Raider will be hitting the streaming service sometime in the future.
Skull Island was the second film in Legendary̵
Since the animated Godzilla films are set in the distant future and are not produced by Legendary, it seems unlikely that they would get a similar universe with King Kong … although this new Kong series is explicitly set in the same “MonsterVerse” as the live action movie. It is produced by Powerhouse Animation, which has done a great job on other Netflix anime projects such as Castlevania and Blood of Zeus.
Tomb RaiderThe recent games were met with great acclaim and were good enough to form the basis of a reboot movie in 2018 (unrelated to Legendary Pictures). The anime series picks up the story after Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Newcomer production studio Tractor Pants will deliver the series, with Tasha Hui from The Witcher: Blood Origin written and executive producer roles.
