Storyline

Fighters from Mortal Kombat tournaments from other worlds and dimensions are invading Earth through dimensional tears, using it as their practice ground, and for more sinister purposes. An elite group of highly trained fighters has been assembled to locate these intrusions and fight off the aliens before Earth is laid waste, and its dimensional structure is destroyed.

Trivia

Therefore Entertainment uses elements of the first Mortal Kombat movie were used in flashback scenes, such as Sub-Zero's defeat at the hands of Liu Kang (seen in Kombat Begins Again), Liu Kang's victory over Shang Tsung (seen in Skin Deep), and Sonya defeating Kano (seen in Familiar Red), though all of them appear toned down in comparison to the movie.

A Better Sequel than the Movie Sequel
16 April 1999 | by GislefSee all my reviews

Yep, the animated series is actually better than Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. Sad, ain't it? There's more character development, and the idea of Earth being invasion, is explored more deeply than in the movie than inspired this series. Watch the series if you want to see the "true" sequel to the original MK movie.
