Apple TV+'s “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” teaser trailer shows all of the kaiju actions

Apple TV+ has just dropped the inaugural teaser for their new series, Monarch: Legacy of Monsters. Slated to make its global debut on November 17, the 10-episode drama is a veritable ensemble piece featuring stars like Kurt Russell, Wyatt Russell, Anna Sawai, and Kiersey Clemons, among others. This series comes as a scion of Legendary's Monsterverse, an entertainment landscape that is both fascinating and terrorising in its scope.

Taking place in the wake of the cataclysmic fight between Godzilla and the Titans, the storyline veers into the mysterious corridors of the Monarch organisation. It is through the lens of two siblings, tracing their father's cryptic involvement with Monarch, that the audience is pulled into this secretive world. The narrative has an intriguing duality - set both in the 1950s and half a century later - where the focal point seems to be Army officer Lee Shaw, played by both Kurt and Wyatt Russell. The stakes? The future of Monarch and what it guards. Across three generations, the series aims to unpack buried secrets and expose the far-reaching implications of epic, life-altering events.

Since the 2014 release of Godzilla, the Monsterverse has seen a meteoric rise in its cinematic footprint, also featuring titles like Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and the recent box office juggernaut Godzilla vs. Kong. Cumulatively, these films have raked in close to US$2 billion worldwide, proving that humanity’s mythical monsters continue to capture imaginations - and wallets.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters will be available exclusively on Apple TV+ this Nov 17.
