Published

on

Apple TV+ today unveiled plans to take the stage for the first time ever at CCXP as it brings its highly anticipated new series “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters,” based on Legendary’s Monsterverse, to the largest comic and entertainment convention in the world held in the São Paulo Expo in Brazil. Beginning Thursday, November 30, and ending with a can’t-miss panel conversation and live Q&A on Sunday, December 3, the thunderous lineup of CCXP23 events and experiences for “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” will include unforgettable fan experiences for thousands of attendees. 

“Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” showrunner and executive producer Chris Black, and executive producers Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold will join thousands of their closest fans at the Thunder Stage at CCXP23 on Sunday to give insight into the world of “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters,” and unveil exclusive content.

Plus, on the show floor throughout the duration of CCXP23, fans will have the chance to step into the Monsterverse realm as they enter an immersive fan experience and photo opportunity for “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters.”

Premiering globally on Apple TV+ with the first two episodes on Friday, November 17, “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” recently took the stage to a packed house at New York Comic-Con, where the series held its first public screening to rave reviews proclaiming “’Monarch: Legacy of Monsters’ looks absolutely awesome, in every sense of the word.” 

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. 

“Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” is co-developed by Chris Black (“Severance,” “Star Trek: Enterprise,” “Outcast,”) and Matt Fraction (“Hawkeye”). Matt Shakman (“Wandavision”) directs the first two episodes. 

Hailing from Legendary Television, the series is executive produced by Black, Fraction and Shakman alongside Joby Harold (“Obi-Wan Kenobi,” “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts”) and Tory Tunnell  (“Spinning Out,” “Underground”) from Safehouse Pictures, Matt Shakman (“Wandavision”), Andy Goddard (“Carnival Row, “Downton Abbey”), Brad Van Arragon (“Yellowjackets, “Carnival Row”), and Andrew Colville (“Severance,” “Star Trek: Discovery”). Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita executive produce on behalf of Toho Co., Ltd., the owner of the Godzilla character. Toho licensed the rights to Legendary for “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” as a natural byproduct of their long-term relationship with the film franchise.

Legendary Entertainment’s Monsterverse is an epic entertainment universe of interconnected stories that bring together popular culture’s most titanic forces of nature. Witness humanity’s greatest battle for survival as we fight for our world in the face of a catastrophic new reality—the monsters of our myths and legends are real. 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,” 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.”
