‘Monarch: Legacy of Monsters’ Monsterverse Series Presents Official Titan Preparedness Plan

3 min read

In a moment where I was delighted that it was finally happening, Apple TV+ previously ordered a live-action series from Legendary Television that ties into the Monsterverse films that it’s been working for the past several years. I’ve said for a while that a good Monarch-based TV series would be a fantastic route to explore and it looks like this may be it. Details are light at the moment but it ties into things that began in 2014 with Godzilla and continued in 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong.

We learned late last year that it was going under the name Godzilla and the Titans but that was recently changed as it was formally titled with Monarch: Legacy of Monsters. The series is set for ten episodes and Apple TV+ and it has a November 17th, 2023 premiere date for the first two episodes.

We got the full trailer recently at NYCC and the latest piece of promotion from the show is a fun one with this preparedness plan. “Titans are here. Be prepared with the official Titan Preparedness Plan.”

The previously revealed cast includes:

  • Kurt Russell
  • Wyatt Russell
  • Anna Sawai
  • Ren Watabe
  • Kiersey Clemons
  • Joe Trippett
  • Elisa Lasowski
  • Mari Yamamoto

Monsterverse films have accumulated close to two billion dollars globally at the box office and the next thing up that we know about is a new anime series, “Skull Island.”

The series will be produced by Legendary Television and executive produced by co-creators Chris Black (“Star Trek: Enterprise,” “Outcast”), who will also serve as showrunner, and Matt Fraction (“Hawkeye”), alongside Safehouse Pictures’ Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell, and Toho Co., Ltd. Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita will executive produce for Toho. Toho is the owner of the Godzilla character and has licensed the rights to Legendary for this series as a natural byproduct of their long-term relationship on the film franchise.

Plot Concept: Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking revelation that monsters are real, Monarch: Legacy of Monsters 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 (played by Kurt Russell and Wyatt Russell), 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.
