    King Kong Series From James Wan Currently in the works at Disney+

    Published on

    The series will be written by Paper Girls creator Stephany Folsom

    King Kong is an icon in Hollywood cinema, with stories being told for decades. Often referred to as the Eighth Wonder of the Wolrd, the massive ape first appeared in 1933, and was last seen last year in Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong. But now, King Kong is going to make his small screen debut, after a recent announcement that Disney+ is creating a live-action series, with The Conjuring director James Wan on board as executive producer. Let’s read in detail below.

    In a report by Deadline, King Kong, which is the series’ current working title, will be an action-adventure that will bring the classic monster story to the new age. Once again, viewers will be taken on a trip to Kong’s home of Skull Island and explore a new origin story of the mighty titan. The series promises to be a grand mythology of the beast, and will be created by Stephany Folsom, creator of Paper Girls. The series will be taking inspiration from the original books by Merian Cooper, and the modern novels by Joe DeVito. DeVito’s work had given more focus on the story, so will likely be the bigger source.

    A different show based on Kong was in the works a while ago, but that didn’t come to be. But Netflix is currently developing an anime series named Skull Island, which is tied into the MonsterVerse by Warner Bros.

    How did Disney get control?

    Another big question is how Disney got control of King Kong when Warner Bros. has been holding on to the rights so tightly. Well, the licensing for the character is a bit complicated, meaning Disney can also work with it. However, it will not be connected to the MonsterVerse. But that doesn’t matter, as we never get tired of Kong.
