Season 2 will up the ante when it comes to story development, fight sequences and yes, fatalities. The first fatality debuted at the “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” Comic-Con panel in a fight between Kitana, Johnny Cage and Milena. I won’t tell you who wins.
“Mortal Kombat: Legacy’s” director, Kevin Tancharoen has been a fan of Mortal Kombat since he was 10 or more specifically “before you could take Super Nintento home.” His love for “MK” led him to make the short film “Mortal Kombat: Rebirth.” The film got the attention of Ed Boon and Warner Bros ushering in Season 1 of “Legacy.” After the success of season 1, Tancharoen and crew knew the next season had to be bigger, better, and bloodier. Season 2’s biggest achievement, according to Kevin, is the linear narrative. Season 1 focused on stand alone origin stories whereas season 2 will focus on the “Mortal Kombat” tournament itself. A cohesive story will mean characters will be meeting each other, and forming bonds and rivalries. For Samantha Jo, who plays Kitana, this means season 2’s fights, drama, and of course, the fatalities will be “amplified.” Even for the video game’s creator, Ed Boon, season 2 still has an element of surprise.
“Mortal Kombat: Legacy” will stream exclusively through Machinima this fall.
