Concept design

Creation of Kong

King Kong is a movie directorMerian C. CooperInvented.Cooper was fascinated by gorillas at the age of six[2], From my uncle in 1899Paul du ChailluI was presented with a book called "Exploration and Adventure in Equatorial Africa".Chaille is in this bookAfricaIt was written about the indigenous people and animals that I met in[3]..Cooper was a "special size" drawn by Chaille and was fascinated by the gorillas who were called "invincible" and "king of the African forest" by the indigenous people.[4][5]..When Chaille and the indigenous people encountered a gorilla, he described the gorilla as a "dream monster of hell" and a "half-human half-beast."[6]..These depictions made Cooper have a strong admiration for adventure.

Adult Cooper entered the movie industry and said, "(English edition)I encountered a baboon's family when shooting.This encounter gave Cooper an opportunity to devise a movie that featured primates.[7].. A year later, Cooper to shoot a "horrible gorilla movie"RKOMoved to. The idea that "gorillas fight planes at the top of skyscrapers" isNew York Life BuildingI came up with an airplane flying over[8].."I envisioned a giant gorilla at the top of the building in my head, without any conscious effort in thinking," Cooper said.[9]..Also, CooperKomodo dragonIs also influenced by[10]I wanted to fight a dinosaur-shaped dragon and a gorilla.During this time, he was consolidating the idea of ​​a "giant semi-human gorilla hostile to modern civilization."[11].

After the film's vision was set, Cooper wanted to create the gorilla as a "nightmare monster," and in his memo, "the gorilla's limbs are as stiff as a steam shovel, and the surroundings are like a steam boiler. This is a hundred-manpower monster, but even more scary is the face. The head of a half-human half-beast with bloody eyes and jagged teeth hidden under thick hair. "[12].Willis O'BrienPainted a giant gorilla oil painting that threatened jungle heroines and hunters, based on Cooper's vision.[13][14]..But with O'Brien(English edition)When Cooper tried to make an animation, Cooper instructed the gorilla to be a full gorilla instead of a half-human, and O'Brien argued that it should be a human face to attract the emotions of the audience, Degard. Instructed to "make the face almost human"[15]..In addition, O'Brien instructed him to add human features, but eventually toned down and compromised the design.[15]..The final finished design looked like a gorilla, but some of the gorilla's anatomical features had been removed by Degard.[16]..O'Brien produced in 1915, "(English edition)Applying the characteristics and movements of the dinosaurs that appeared in the movie to the movements of gorillas, he describes the dinosaurs as "the ancestors of King Kong."[17][18]..Also, Cooper has a gorillaニ ュ ー ヨ ー クAgreed to stand upright in the scene and make it look more intimidating[19].


Cooper said,Komodo Island""Kodiak Island""KodakI liked the strong-sounding words that start with "K"[20]..When he was contemplating a giant gorilla movieCongoI wanted to get a real gorilla from and fight the Komodo dragon.I became interested in Komodo dragons because my friend Douglas Baden heard about his experience traveling to Komodo Island and meeting Komodo dragons.[21].

When Cooper was planning a movie at RKO, this gorilla was called the "Beast."Producer'sDavid O. SelznickProposed "Jungle Beast" as the title of the movie[22]After deciding on a name for the character, Cooper was trying to give it to the title.CooperDracula,Frankenstein's monsterI was thinking of a "mysterious, romantic, and savage name" like[22].. RKO suggested to Cooper "Kong: King of Beasts," "Kong: The Jungle King," and "Kong: The Jungle Beast" as title candidates.[22]. But,(English edition)By the time he wrote the script, Cooper was thinking of making the title simply "Kong."On the other hand, Selznick made "(English edition)''(English edition)I was afraid that it would be confused with a documentary movie like "King Kong", so I added "King" to the title and named it "King Kong".[23].

Physical characteristics

In the 1933 edition, Kong is considered a prehistoric ape, and RKO's sources refer to it as a "prehistoric monkey."[24]..Although it looks like a gorilla, it has a human facial expression and occasionally anthropomorphic upright walking.(English edition)Describes as "neither a beast nor a human."Kong had great intelligence and strength, and his body was replaced in the movie.Cooper called Kong "40 to 50 feet (12.2 to 15.2 meters)"[25]However, O'Brien adjusted Kong's body length to 5.5 meters on Skull Island and 7.3 meters in New York.[26]..Cooper didn't say anything about changing O'Brien, and by adjusting the size of the miniature and camera, he succeeded in shooting Kong larger than O'Brien's setting. According to RKO materials, Kong is 15.2 meters long.[24].

1975 years,Dino de LaurentiisAcquired the rights to make King Kong into a movie, and the following year, the remake version of "キ ン グ コ ン グ』Has been released.This Kong is depicted as an erect bipedal monkey, more like a human. The 1975 version of Kong was adjusted to look 12.8 meters on Skull Island and 16.8 meters in New York.[27]..Laurentiis acquired the right to produce a sequel 10 years later,King Kong 2』, And Kong in this movie was set to 18.3 meters[28].

"King Kong vs. Godzilla" was a record-breaking hit in Japan, and in response to this, "King Kong vs. Godzilla" was planned, but it has failed due to various circumstances.

In "King Kong vs. Godzilla," Kong's body length is set to 45 meters.In addition, a setting has been added to release electrical energy from the hand to fight.[34].. In "King Kong's Counterattack", the body length was set to 20 meters.This Kong is close to the original, but fighting with power and intelligence as weapons[35]..The Toho version of Kong is not based on Skull Island, but on Faro Island and Mondo Island, respectively.

In 1966, "Operation Robinson Crusoe King Kong vs. Ebirah" was planned as a collaboration between Japan and the United States, but the production was canceled because the American side was reluctant to plan it.[36]..Toho introduced Godzilla in place of Kong and said, "Godzilla Ebira Mothra Nankai Great Duel] Was produced.Therefore, the elements of Kong are reflected, such as Godzilla's favor for women.[37].
