Kong: King of the Apes is an American Netflix-exclusive animated kaiju series co-created by Netflix, Arad Animation, and 41 Entertainment that was released to Netflix on April 15, 2016.

Synopsis

Season 1

"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."[1] The show content only differs from this pre-release synopsis in that the "three kids" are in fact two kids and three adults.

Season 2

Kong: King of the Apes was renewed for a second season set to premiere in 2017. It will feature Lukas Remy, Danny Kwan, and Francisca in a prehistoric underground world, where they must face real dinosaurs and giant insects.

Trivia

  • Kong: King of the Apes shares some connections with the previous animated series featuring King Kong, Kong: The Animated Series, due to its production company, 41 Entertainment, splitting off from BKN International, who produced the previous series.

I find it interesting how all three animated series featuring Kong chose to portray him as a big friendly giant who befriends children and battles a mad scientist. The similarities between the last two series kind of make sense though, since King of the Apes is basically a spiritual successor to The Animated Series and shares the same writer.

While the comedy, or attempts at comedy rather, can be childish at best, and the sometimes blaring environmental message, the series is actually pretty dark in the drama.

That said, its written for children by people who have no clue what children are like, so... take that as you will.
