Kong: Skull Island (2017)
Frequently Asked Questions
No, Kong: Skull Island is a reboot and is not connected to any previous version of the character. This film is set in the same universe as Legendary Pictures' Godzilla (2014) (2014) and in the year 1973. This film is meant to introduce Kong in anticipation of an onscreen crossover featuring him and Godzilla in 2020.
No. While Kong is massive, he is still smaller than Godzilla. However, in this film, it's mentioned that Kong has been around for a long time and will continue to grow. So, assuming the crossover film takes place in the modern day, that would give Kong nearly 50 more years of growth.
