King Kong is a fictional monster resembling a gorilla that has appeared in several movies since 1933. These include the groundbreaking 1933 movie, the film remakes of 1976 and 2005, as well as various sequels of the first two films.
The character has become one of the world's most famous movie icons and, as such, has transcended the movies, appearing in other works outside of films, such as a cartoon series, books, comics, various merchandise, video games and theme park rides.
The rights to the character are currently held by Universal Studios, with limited rights held by the estate of Merian C. Cooper.
