First “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” Trailer Reveals Apple TV+’s Godzilla-Sized New Series

Apple TV+ has revealed the first teaser trailer for their upcoming series Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, which continues exploring the Titans featured in Legendary’s Monsterverse films, those colossal monsters that include Godzilla and King Kong, and Monarch, the shadowy organization that tracks them. 

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is led by the father and son duo of Kurt and Wyatt Russell, with a story spanning three generations and centered on two siblings who are following in their father’s footsteps to unearth their family’s connection to the Monarch organization, that secretive cabal that has been keeping tabs on the various Titans. The two most well-known Titans are the aforementioned Godzilla and King Kong, but they’re hardly the only beasts worth keeping an eye on. Others include Mothra, King Ghidorah, Rodan, Scylla, Behemoth, and more. 

The Russells play the same man—Lee Shaw—portrayed by Wyatt Russell as a young man in the 1950s and then by Kurt Russell in the show’s present. Shaw is the key individual who holds secrets that are a major threat to Monarch. The series is set after the events in 2014’s Godzilla

The cast also includes Anna Sawai, Kiersey Clemons, Ren Watabe, Mari Yamamoto, Anders Holm, Joe Tippett, and Eliza Lasowski.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters was co-developed by Matt Fraction (Hawkeye) and Chris Black (Outcast, Star Trek: Enterprise), with Matt Shakman (WandaVision) helming the first two episodes.

Check out the trailer below. Monarch: Legacy of Monsters stomps onto Apple TV+ on November 17:
