Beginning in 2014 with Godzilla and continuing with 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters and 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong, Legendary Entertainment’s Monsterverse is an epic universe of interconnected stories that bring together popular culture’s most titanic forces of nature.
To date, the Monsterverse has accumulated close to two billion dollars globally at the box office and is ever-expanding, with the highly anticipated sequel Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire coming up soon.
Monarch: Legacy of Monsters follows the battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking revelation that monsters are real. The series tracks two siblings following in their father’s footsteps to uncover their family’s connection to the secretive organization known as Monarch.
Clues lead them into the world of monsters and ultimately down the rabbit hole to Army officer Lee Shaw taking place in the 1950s and half a century later where Monarch is threatened by what Shaw knows.
The dramatic saga — spanning three generations — reveals buried secrets and the ways that epic, earth-shattering events can reverberate through our lives.
Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is co-developed by Chris Black (Severance) and Matt Fraction (Hawkeye). Matt Shakman (WandaVision) directs the first two episodes.
The series stars Kurt Russell (Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2), Wyatt Russell (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Anna Sawai (Pachinko), Kiersey Clemons (The Flash), Ren Watabe, Mari Yamamoto (Pachinko), Anders Holm (The Muppets Mayhem), Joe Tippett (Mr. Harrigan’s Phone) and Elisa Lasowski (Blood Machines).
Monarch: Legacy of Monsters will be coming soon to Apple TV+.
