The original 1933 film has had two official remakes, along with numerous spin-offs, sequels, crossovers, and spoofs. Retellings in other media range from a DirectToVideo animated feature in TheNineties (''The Mighty Kong'' for those curious) to an Australian stage musical in 2013 (a Broadway production of this version has been announced, though the opening date is currently in limbo). The three major films (and their sequels) are:

King Kong has been the basis for two attractions at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal Orlando Resort]]. The first attraction, known as ''Ride/{{Kongfrontation}}'', was among the opening day rides at Universal Studios Florida in 1990. Based off the 1976 remake, the ride had guests board the Roosevelt Island trams and come face-to-face with the giant ape during his rampage in New York. The ride was suddenly closed in 2002, a decision that lead to much backlash from both fans and the general public. In response, a new King Kong attraction would eventually be built at the neighboring park, Universal's Islands of Adventure, in 2016. This new ride, titled, ''Ride/SkullIslandReignOfKong'', is loosely based off of the 2005 remake and follows an expedition to Skull Island that quickly goes awry as guests get several close encounters with the island's inhabitants before coming across Kong himself in a battle between him and a Vastatosaurus Rex trio.

*** Weta Workshop actually filmed a brand-new version of the Spider Pit Sequence as an extra for the de luxe DVD edition, using authentic stop-motion techniques, in black and white and Academy AspectRatio, to match the look of the film as closely as possible. They even created the sound of a monster's roar by slowing down one of Fay Wray's screams from the original movie..
