A surprising Mortal Kombat 11 announcement was just the beginning. Revenge of the Fans reports, that Warner Bros is working on the animated Mortal Kombat movie. Warner Bros took ownership of Mortal Kombat rights in 2009 and been staffing for the new feature film since 2011. While most rumors said, that we’ll most probably get a live-action movie first, it looks like Warner Bros Animation department was quicker.

According to the report, there are many famous names involved in the animated Mortal Kombat feature. Joel McHale and Jennifer Carpenter are leading the line and lending their voices for the movie characters. However, there is no information regarding which characters they will be voicing.

Additionally, the cast includes many more experienced talents – Steve Blum, who voiced Bo’ Rai Cho, Reptile and Sub-Zero in Mortal Kombat X, Kevin Michael Richards who voiced Goro in the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie, as well as Patrick Seitz who voiced Scorpion in a few previous Mortal Kombat games.

While we still lack detail regarding the animated Mortal Kombat movie, some additional news might be revealed this week. NetherRealm Studios are planning a live stream on January 17th, which will reveal Mortal Kombat 11 gameplay and characters. Maybe the upcoming animated movie will get its time under a spotlight as well…
