It will not have escaped the spectators that the reboot of the King Kong franchise, Kong: Skull Island realized by Jordan vogt-roberts, presents a diverse bestiary in addition to the mythical giant gorilla. In an interview given to JoBlo and resumed by SlashFilm, the director returned to the creation of these creatures and his unconditional love for the universe of Japanese Hayao Miyazaki:

“The creatures were the big challenge in the movie. If Kong is the God of his island, we wanted each beast to be like the God of his own domain. Miyazaki and his Princess Mononoke were big references because the spirits of the creatures in the film inhabited their own environments and couldn’t live without it. Another challenge was to create realistic looking beasts that could exist in a wild ecosystem. Their designs had to be beautiful and scary at the same time. When you see that giant spider or that buffalo, you get stuck on it and say to yourself: “It is the most incredible thing I have ever seen ” and after “Oh my god it’s gonna kill me, I have to save my skin! “ This is what I have always preferred about Miyazaki, he knows how to transcribe the beauty of the world without ever forgetting that nature, real or fictional, is violent, unforgivable and indifferent to human feelings. “
