What happens when a group of explorers finds themselves shipwrecked on the dangerous Skull Island? They’ll come face-to-face with legendary monsters and, of course, King Kong himself. But will they make it off of the island alive?
Netflix’s new anime series Skull Island is the first official series in the MonsterVerse, so it’s an exciting time to be a fan of the franchise!
So far, none of the cast members from the 2017 live-action film Kong: Skull Island have been announced, but there could be some surprise cameos in the show that we don’t know about yet! It’s possible actors from some of the other MonsterVerse films could pop up, too, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Skull Island cast: Who voices each character?
Nicolas Cantu as Charlie
Nicolas Cantu is a popular voice actor and YouTuber best known for voicing the character Gumball in the animated comedy series The Amazing World of Gumball. He’s also lent his voice to projects like DuckTales, DreamWorks Dragons: Rescue Riders, Sofia the First, and The Powerpuff Girls. In 2022, Cantu appeared in Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award-winning film The Fabelmans.
Mae Whitman as Annie
If you’re an avid Netflix watcher, you might recognize Mae Whitman from her starring role in the NBC drama Good Girls. She also played Amber in the family drama Parenthood and starred opposite Michael Cera in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. She’ll reprise her role as Roxy Richter in Netflix’s upcoming Scott Pilgrim anime.
Darren Barnet as Mike
Darren Barnet is definitely going to be recognizable to most Netflix subscribers as he plays heartthrob Paxton Hall-Yoshida in Never Have I Ever. Barnet has worked with Netflix several times now. Besides the teen dramedy, he starred in the Netflix projects Love Hard and Samurai Rabbit: The Usagi Chronicles.
Benjamin Bratt as Cap
Most recently, Benjamin Bratt appeared in the acclaimed Peacock show Poker Face alongside Orange is the New Black and Russian Doll alum, Natasha Lyonne. He’s also been cast in the upcoming second season of the Disney+ series Andor. Other projects you might recognize Bratt from include Miss Congeniality, Coco, Modern Family, Traffic, and Doctor Strange.
Betty Gilpin as Irene
It still hurts to think of Netflix prematurely canceling GLOW after all this time, but at least Betty Gilpin has plenty of other projects to get excited about, including Skull Island. She also stars in the Peacock show Mrs. Davis and other notable series like Three Women, Gaslit, Roar, American Gods, and Masters of Sex.
All eight episodes of Skull Island start streaming this Thursday, June 22.
