■GACKT’s comment

「It has an unexpected development. The whole episode is a continuous surprise!
It’s 20 times more fun than the 「Jurassic」 series.
It’s not just ‘King Kong’, it’s a fight between a gigantic creature and mankind.
A movie where nature and emotions are brought to their extremes.
There are also some scenes that represent a Tribute to the Studio Ghibli animation.
Surely, it is a unique movie.
I’d like for everyone, all fans of this movie, and also to all the young people tha don’t know about King to experience it’s incredible high quality.
I really look forward to be involved in this movie through the voice of the protagonist.
Don’t miss the Japanese dubbed version!」
