Netflix, Arad Animation, and 41e Partner for Kong – King of the Apes


Netflix Inc and 41 Entertainment have jointly announced a new series slated for worldwide release in 2016 titled Kong – King of the Apes. The original animated TV series comes from executive producer Avi Arad, who’s been a producer of many movies and TV series based on iconic superhero franchises such as Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, and The Incredible Hulk. His most recent projects also include the wildly popular Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, which started airing last year.

Kong – The King of the Apes will be CG animated and will consist of a full length feature film followed by 12 x 30 minute episodes. The series is set far in the future, with Kong still considered as the strongest creature ever born with many human traits, making him the ultimate iconic hero. The official synopsis:

In KONG, the future looks bright for San Francisco’s Alcatraz Island since its transformation into the most impressive Natural History and Marine Preserve on the planet. But when the star attraction suddenly goes ape and KONG becomes public enemy number one, the villain that framed him is free to unleash an army of gigantic robotic dinosaurs on the unsuspecting world. Ironically, KONG is the only force formidable enough to stop these super-powered dinosaurs and the evil genius manipulating them. But KONG is now the world’s most hunted fugitive. Fortunately, there are three young humans who know the truth and are willing to risk their lives to help KONG evade capture, while he battles to save humankind.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Avi who has made some of the most successful action and adventure franchises today and whose Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventure series has been very popular on Netflix around the world,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer for Netflix. “With 41 Entertainment as our partner on this, we continue to work with some of the finest animation studios around the world to create shows that will appeal to kids of all ages globally.”

“I always loved King Kong. This is a unique opportunity to introduce him in brilliant CGI animation to kids worldwide with the power of Netflix,” said Executive Producer, Avi Arad.
