Kong finally makes an appearance on film. Check out 'Full Moon Lullaby' performed in full by the Australian cast.

It's hard to be in Melbourne and not be aware that something big is about to take place. There are signs on trams and bus stops, billboards and flags lining the streets. The Regent Theatre already looks prepared for opening night of this world premiere musical event. Yes, something very big is indeed about to take place: King Kong. But, in a very cleverly mapped out publicity campaign very few people have actually seen the biggest star himself. He's 6 metres tall, weighs 1.1 tonne and is the world's most advanced puppet. – Allison Hilbig
