|1. When is the show set to come out?|
Well, it should be shooting in April/May and airing in the fall. If all goes as planned...
2. Are any actors from the movies going to be on the show? If so, which ones?
Formal casting has not begun but I suspect the actors will all be new.
3. Who are some of the new characters that are going to be in the show?
Initially, the centers on Kung Lao and his quest to repeat as champion of the MK tournaments five hundred years ago. Rayden is a regular, as is Shang Tsung and Shao Kahn. New heroes will be introduced over the course of the series as Kung Lao gathers a group of fighters to join him in the tournament.
4. Will there be anything that uses a lot of special effects like were used with Goro and Motaro?
As long as there are incredible creatures and characters in the MK world you can expect equally incredible effects.
5. Anything really cool or special you would like to share about the show?
The series will be doing something very cool: showing you the origins of many
villains. For instance, in the first two shows Shang Tsung "creates"
Scorpion with his sorcery. Expect a bunch of this in episodes to come.
