Prepare yourself for action and destruction, because Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is about to awaken from the depths of Apple TV+ like Godzilla answering the siren song of Tokyo Bay.
This series is the latest chapter in a tale as old as time—well as old as the Atomic Age that is—where Godzilla stands tall as the big daddy of all the Kaiju, the cinematic titan who first breathed atomic fire onto the movie scene in 1954.
Enter The Monsterverse
Since Godzilla’s introduction, this towering metaphor for the nuclear age has smashed box offices along with its fair share of miniature cityscapes and military defenders. Evolving from a destructive force of nature to a defender of Earth (depending on which of the 30-plus films you’re watching), Godzilla has battled more monsters than you can shake a Mothra at.
In this new Apple TV+ exclusive, the series will carry the torch of Legendary’s and Toho’s Monsterverse.
The Monsterverse has already given fans the gritty Godzilla in 2014, the Vietnam-era Kong: Skull Island in 2017, the titanic Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019), and the heavyweight duel Godzilla vs. Kong (2021). Each instalment has woven a rich tapestry of lore for fans and newcomers alike.
The interesting thing about Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is it that the story takes place across multiple timelines, following two siblings who sift through the ruins of monster-ravaged cities to stitch together their father’s mysterious ties to Monarch.
