Just two days away from the airing of Mortal Kombat Legacy 2, the official Machinima Facebook page has unveiled its newest character banner, featuring two of its main characters in costume, Mark Dacascos as devout warrior monk Kung Lao, and Brian Tee in a unique portrayal of the classic character Liu Kang. The series comes two years after the success of Mortal Kombat Legacy, with nine episodes that followed the viral success of a leaked 7 minute short film/trailer pitch from director Kevin Tancharoen who eventually got the attention of Warner Bros. prior to choosing him as the helmer of both online seasons and the currently developing film rebooting the 1995 and 1997 installments.
Mortal Kombat: Legacy brings to life the complex and rich history of the gaming world of MORTAL KOMBAT. Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung are obsessed with reigning over various realms (parallel universes) and the winners of Mortal Kombat competitions are granted supreme control over these worlds. The Earthrealm (Earth) is an unconscious participant in this competition and only a few select humans understand the consequences of losing Mortal Kombat and what it will mean to Earth. In a universe with powerful evil sorcerers, cyborgs, Gods and movie stars, this Mortal Kombat digital media series drives a cohesive understanding of what this Universe is all about.
