Continuation: King Kong vs. Godzilla (続 キングコング対ゴジラ,   Zoku Kingu Kongu tai Gojira) is an unmade 1963 direct sequel to King Kong vs. Godzilla.

Plot

Just a year after their epic showdown on Mount Fuji, King Kong and Godzilla do battle once again.

History

Following the huge financial success of King Kong vs. Godzilla in 1962, Toho immediately began production of the next Godzilla film. Hoping to repeat the success of the previous film, Toho initially decided to produce a direct sequel pitting King Kong against Godzilla once again. Shinichi Sekizawa wrote a screenplay for the film, which had the simple working title of Continuation: King Kong vs. Godzilla, and submitted it in 1963. However, the film was quickly scrapped, and the specifics of the screenplay are not known.[1] The idea was replaced with a film pitting Godzilla against a giant version of Frankenstein's monster, titled Frankenstein vs. Godzilla, which was itself split into two different films, Mothra vs. Godzilla and Frankenstein vs. Baragon.
