RKO wanted to cash in on more Kong after the first film’s success and got the ball rolling on the sequel almost immediately. In Son of Kong, Denham returns to find a new monster to bring back to the states to fix his problems. He and his crew encounters a smaller albino ape who they figure has to be Kong’s son.
Wasei Kingu Kongu: Japanese King Kong (1933)

Japan hopped on the King Kong movies wagon really early. In anticipation of the release of the original film overseas, they shot a comedic short to amp up audiences. Tokyo-based Shochiku Studios created a silly black and white short about a man who dresses up as King Kong for a theater to impress his girlfriend. There is no footage available from this film and, sadly, it’s considered lost.
Edo ni Arawareta Kingu Kongu: King Kong Appears in Edo (1938)

Kong’s second Japanese appearance is in another lost film from the late ’30s. King Kong Appears in Edo is a period piece where the giant ape takes on Samurai’s in the feudal era. He’s used to kidnap a girl who’s father is looking for her with an army. In this film Kong is more minute and the size of a Yeti. Nothing much is known about this film outside of stories from actors and interviews about it.
