Monster Hunter Animated Movie For Netflix Gets First Trailer

Legends of the Guild comes to Netflix this August.


The first trailer for Netflix's new Monster Hunter movie, Legends of the Guild, has arrived. The trailer introduces viewers to the main character, Aiden, who is defending his village from a dragon.

Aiden is voiced by Dante Brasco, who played a major role in the Steven Spielberg movie Hook and is also known for his voiceover career, most prominently in the role of Prince Zuko in Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild comes to Netflix on August 12. It's directed by Steven F. Yamamoto, who has done visual effects for Transformers and is making his directorial debut with the film.

"A young man named Aiden, who calls himself a hunter, protects his isolated village. One day, he learns that his village is threatened by an Elder Dragon, a monster cloaked in mystery. Needing to find a way to save his village, Aiden leaves his home and sets off on a journey into the unknown alongside Julius, a first-rate hunter and member of the Hunter's Guild, and his companions," reads a line from the film's description (via Eurogamer). "Thus begins an original story that shines the spotlight on characters in the world of Monster Hunter who have remained in the background until now."

The movie was produced by Pure Imagination Studios. It's the second Monster Hunter movie in under a year, following the live-action Monster Hunter film starring Milla Jovovich. GameSpot's Monster Hunter live-action movie review said it was a "monstrous miscalculation."
