Kong: King of the Apes
"Snake in the Grass"
One day while at home on the banks of the Usumacincta river in Mexico where she lived in the care of her aunt Maria, Fransisca called her great-aunt Anita in San Fransisco. Fransisca asked to move to America and live with her in order to help her employer Lukas Remy on his endeavors to save endangered wildlife. During the call, Panchi showed Anita a bird passing by perched on a log, but the log turned out to be a Giant Anaconda, that attacked and swallowed her phone. That evening, she found the rescue crew, consisting of Remy himself, Doug Jones, and Danny Quon just as their companion Kong began facing off with the snake. It quickly retreated, and using Lukas' phone, she was able to contact Anita, and reveal that her aunt Maria had agreed that she was old enough to come live with Anita, as she had been promised. Just after this was decided, they were attacked by a Biono-bot Tyrannosaurus and pterodactyl, which set the jungle on fire, which kept the team from being able to prevent them from taking the snake. It was night when they finally reached where she had been taken to on Alcatraz Island, where the snake had been turned into a cyborg biono-bot, and was made to fight Kong. Danny then had the idea to overload her power source by making her swallow the chopper's battery. Panchi helped him get it out, and after the operation proved successful, they rode on Kong's back as he swung across the bottom of the Golden Gate Bridge to return home, where Amy Quon performed surgery to remove the snake's implants, and even retrieved Panchi's holophone. She graciously accepted it back, only to find it covered in slime, which prompted Kong to projectile snot all over them. Lukas and Jonesy then worked to get the snake back into the wild, while Panchi settled into her new home.
"Kong in 3D"
