New Warner Bros. Digital Division Announces Mortal Kombat Webseries

Warner Brothers has announced a new digital production division today called Blue Ribbon Content.

According to The Hollywood Reporter; WB Animation veteran Sam Register will head the division, set to launch with a full slate of live-action content based on existing and original WB properties. Among the list is the already announced webseries Justice League: Gods And Montsers, a live-action version of Milestone Comics favourite Static Shock, and a new Mortal Kombat webseries to tie-in with the 2015 release of Mortal Kombat X!

Variety reports the new Mortal Kombat webseries is currently untitled -- making its relationship with established series Mortal Kombat: Legacy unclear. Like Mortal Kombat X - the 2015 shorts will split their focus between klassic and new characters.

The next generation in the Mortal Kombat franchise to be released in association with the upcoming “Mortal Kombat X” videogame, slated to bow April 14, 2015. Blue Ribbon Content and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment are teaming on the series, which will showcase some of the franchise’s popular characters and introduce a new generation of fighters.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy launched in 2011 as a promotional tie-in to Mortal Kombat for home consoles. Kevin Tancharoen's balance between quality and speed of production earned him the job after his Rebirth short went viral. The 2012 follow-up series received mixed reviews.

Legacy II actor Casper Van Dien first shared a photo of his preparation for a third series, back in June. The Johnny Cage actor added fuel to the fire last month, expanding his training with cast mate Mark Dacascos [full story].

Mortal Kombat will have a full slate in 2015! Also announced to tie into the game - a new series from DC Comics and all new high quality action figures! Follow all the major licensing stories in the Media & Merchandise forum!

Neat, but what kind of web-series? Is it live-action, a documentary, animated?

Glad MK is slowly becoming a bigger franchise again. Want these video and comic series to eventually branch off from the games so that we see the original trilogy in full well-written scripts. Then folks like Baraka can finally have a personality that's not filled with "GWRARRRRR!".

Tekken Blood Vengeance was beautiful, but the story was shitting all over the games. It had absolutely nothing to do with the canon lore, except for minor tidbits. MK: Annihilation was closer to the games' lore than Tekken Blood Vengeance was.

Yeah I was talking about the graphics. I don't know much about Tekken so I was just mesmerized by how beautiful it looked.

At least the live movie was about a tournament hosted by Heihachi... like in the games.

Please don't Arrow-nize or Flash-sinize the show. I like my MK web series dark and gritty.

Oh and my initial reaction to an MK web-series announcement relevant to the MKX game :B

Wow

I've never had any interest in Tekken: Blood Vengeance, seeing as how it's heavily focused on that abomination, Alisa.

And I really, really hope this webseries isn't going to be anything like Legacy 2. *Shiver*

I believe it'll be animated in same style as the DC animated movies.

Perhaps they'll show us ALL the new characters and returning characters yet to come.

Yes and great voice actors as well. I can't stress that element of a successful animated series enough.

It took place after Tekken 5 and before Tekken 6 so no shit there's no tourney (Even though it is non canon)

... Have you even seen the movie?
It is about Jin's first time in the tournament, aka Tekken 3. Even Yoshimitsu's costume in the movie is shaped to look like his Tekken 3 one. Don't be fooled about Christie being in the movie, that's just bad writing... along with the rest of the movie script...

But the point is... the movie is bad! But it doesn't pretend to be something else than what the games are about. Tekken Blood Vengeance is beautiful, but the story in the movie is a huge pile of shit. It's like they took a random movie script and just put in Tekken characters to fill each role.

Regarding BV's story I agree. It's not the worst thing I've seen but it could've been better honestly.

I'm more excited for the comic to be honest. But it is cool to see all the media MKX is getting.

To be fair, Tekken 6 wasn't about the tournament either.
