Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Academy Award-winning director Peter Jackson brings his sweeping cinematic vision to the iconic story of the gigantic ape-monster. Lavishly illustrated, this book reproduces the amazing artwork, design sketches, and digital models that helped bring Kong to life.
"Weta Workshop ... responsible for designing Skull Island and its fantastical inhabitants for Peter Jackson's epic King Kong, the artists at Weta Workshop have created a rich and diverse world of wonders and terrors to thrill audiences everywhere. Hundreds of drawings and sculptures were created to populate the mystery island, building a comprehensive menagerie with complex ecosystems and forbidding habitats. Though only a handful will appear on screen, presented within these pages is a vast collection of creatures and lore, each lovingly depicted with production art and new illustrations created especially for this book." -- Inside back cover.
