After the events of the Frozen Kingdom and the Undersea Kingdom, young Howard finds himself at home. The walls of reality are thinning making the world vulnerable to dangers from beyond.

Development[edit | edit source]
Shout! Factory announced their title releases at SDCC '18, which included Howard Lovecraft and the Kingdom of Madness. The Howard Lovecraft series is based on the graphic novel written by Bruce Brown. In an interview with WIRED, the author stated his inspiration came from the writings of American horror author H. P. Lovecraft as well as many of the character and setting names. This is the third and last installment of the trilogy. The final film in the series brings out a creature that "has long been foreshadowed" in the previous installments.
