Move over Godzilla, Kong is now getting his own Anime on Netflix too!
Netflix has announced Skull Island, a new anime series set in the Legendary MonsterVerse. It will be produced by Powerhouse Animation, the studio behind Castlevania.
The series will involve a shipwrecked crew landing on an island full of monsters, where one king rules them all. That ‘king’ is likely to be Kong himself, considering Skull Island is the giant gorilla’s home.
Skull Island has been featured in numerous films, starting in the 1933 movie King Kong. Most recently, it was the setting of Kong: Skull Island, and modern film fans will also recall it being a large part of Peter Jackson’s King Kong. The Kong: Skull Island version of the setting is officially part of the Legendary MonsterVerse, and so may well be the starting point for this show, which is also an official part of the universe.
