King Kong makes his return, this time in a CGI animated series, which will follow the exploits of King Kong over 30 years into the future. Here is the official synopsis and artwork for Kong – King Of The Apes.
Kong – King Of The Apes will be a feature-length animated film that will be followed by 12 half-hour episodes. The story will not be about King Kong’s time on Skull Island, but will be set in the year 2050, and deal with Kong being framed and hunted by giant robotic dinosaurs. Okay…. sure why not. (Clearly this one is aimed for a younger crowd).
“Set in 2050, Kong becomes a wanted fugitive after wrecking havoc at Alcatraz Island’s Natural History and Marine Preserve. What most humans on the hunt for the formidable animal don’t realize, though, is that Kong was framed by an evil genius who plans to terrorize the world with an army of enormous robotic dinosaurs. As the only beast strong enough to save humanity from the mechanical dinos, Kong must rely on the help of three kids who know the truth about him.”
