With the Skull Island movie set for 2017, Universal Orlando Resort has announced that Kong will be taking his home to their attractions next year.
In the announcement video (and concept art pics) below, it is revealed that Skull Island: Reign of Kong will open in the summer of 2016 at Universal’s Islands of Adventure and will dramatically put the visitors in the middle of a powerful story enviornment.
“It begins as guests are transported deep into a wild and mysterious world, where their mission is to discover creatures of unknown origin – but where they are soon fighting for their own survival. Their journey will take them through an ancient temple inhabited by hostile natives, a perilous jungle ruled by prehistoric creatures, a foreboding underworld of caves concealing unspeakable terrors – and face-to-face with the colossal Kong himself.”
King Kong and Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson is working closely with the project developers. Mike West, Executive Producer, Universal Creative said: “King Kong is a Hollywood movie legend and a huge part of both our history and our future. He gives us the opportunity to tap into everything that makes our film history so special and everything that makes our theme park attractions so spectacular. We can’t wait to bring him to life in such an epic way.”
We’re not going to lie, this is on our ‘must visit list’.
