PlotEdit

After capturing King Kong on Skull Island, Carl Denham ferries him across the Indian Ocean, around the continent of Africa, planning to eventually take him to New York City. But trouble befalls the tramp steamer Wanderer, and she is forced to make landfall in Africa, home of Tarzan; whom Denham had met once some years before. Kong escapes and roams the jungles, unintentionally causing havoc amongst its population as he slaughters numerous African wildlife and desecrates the elephant graveyard. Hearing reports of a giant gorilla on the loose, Tarzan investigates and prepares himself. An inevitably climactic showdown in a thunderstorm is joined between the Lord of the Jungle atop a herd of elephants and the King of Skull island with Carl Denham trying to recapture Kong and scheming to do the same to Tarzan.
