Kong information continues to roll out, but this time it isn’t about vehicles – we’re talking creatures. Scary ones. Universal Creative executive producer, Mike West, has revealed the beasts that we will encounter on Skull Island via the official Universal Orlando blog and they are looking good.
Here are pictures and descriptions of each of the creatures:
These carnivorous arachnids move throughout the swampy underworld of the island’s dark caverns, foraging for dead or injured creatures. The six-legged scavenger uses its crab-like claws to crush its prey before feasting on the remains.
The giant, slug-like Carnictis lacks eyes or facial features. But its gaping, oozing mouth—ringed with sharp, jagged teeth—is a distinguishing feature that allows this slow but relentless creature to feed on dead and wounded beings that have succumbed to the wretched, murky chasms of the island.
One of the largest and most aggressive cave-dwelling inhabitants on the island, the Decarnocimex will attack anything smaller or weaker that dares to cross its path. These vicious insects tear apart their prey with their razor-sharp mandibles and two-bladed forearms.
These are the largest flying predators on the island, with wingspans up to 10 feet. They live in colonies within the island’s interior caverns and are easily provoked. Spearing victims with lethal talons, they use large carnivorous fangs to penetrate anything—or anyone—caught in their jaws of death.
The V. Rex is the largest, most intimidating dinosaur that roams the island’s dense jungles. Despite its large, bulky head and tough leathery skin, it’s an agile predator, changing direction at high speeds and ripping into its prey with razor-sharp teeth.
How can Skull Island: Reign of Kong can any better? Hear it now for the first time – kids are going make the Terapusmordax the hottest Christmas gift this year.
Along with the descriptions of the creatures, Universal also showed off some of the footage from the ride, which has confirmed that screens may be an even bigger aspect than most are hoping.
Regardless of screens, Kong is looking more and more epic each and every day.
