It looks like Apple TV+ is going after Godzilla and the Titans in an enormous deal that stretches all over Legendary’s Monsterverse.

The film’s setting is an American city as it follows Godzilla and the Titans fighting off each other and could destroy San Francisco in the process. However, there has been a new discovery – giant monsters do, in fact, exist. 

In the series, a family’s adventure to discover hidden secrets and a legacy tie them with an organization called Monarch. However, the title is still not revealed. 

The production of the series will be left in the hands of Legendary Television, with Matt Fraction and Chris Black serving as executive producers alongside Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell from House Pictures. In addition to this group, they’ve added Hiro Matsuoka, who works at Toho Co Ltd., while Takemasa Arisa plays a role in production too. 

The Japanese film production Toho has licensed the rights for this series to Legendary, as they own Godzilla. This is a natural offshoot of their deep-rooted affinity for the film franchise.

When “Godzilla v Kong” was released, it became one of the first major blockbusters in this new era. This sparked the discussion for expanding the universe with the series. 

Legendary is already hard at work on another upcoming movie in the Monsterverse, but they spotted the potential for an entirely new series and started negotiating with interested buyers.

It has been reported that Apple became interested in the series as it looks into securing additional branded IP. The company later agreed to work on developing this project, paving the way for an overall successful partnership. 

The Monsterverse films have been earning an impressive sum of money, about $2 billion at the global box office. It began with 2014’s “Godzilla,” followed by 2017s’ “Kong: Skull Island,” then 2019’s “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” and continues today through 2021 with “Godzilla v. Kong.” 

The series will be released worldwide on Apple TV+. Together with upcoming dramas like the one based on Hugh Howey’s New York Times best-selling trilogy “Wool”; “Foundation” based on the novels by Isaac Asimov; “Invasion” by Simon Kinberg and David Weil; and “See,” a post-apocalyptic series featuring Jason Momoa, Dave Bautista, and Alfre Woodard.
