The King Finally Gets His Throne In Amazing New KONG: SKULL ISLAND Concept Art

Stunning concept art from Kong: Skull Island has been revealed which focuses on some of the movie's key scenes along with the King sitting on a throne as he's worshipped by the island's inhabitants.

Thanks to io9, we have a brand new batch of amazing Kong: Skull Island concept art by designer Eddie Del Rio. Many of these pieces will be instantly familiar to you as director Jordan Vogt-Roberts clearly lifted a lot of shots and went on to put them on screen almost exactly as they were originally designed. 
That points to there being an extremely collaborative process behind the scenes, but two of these are particularly interesting. As you can see, in one version of the movie, it appears as if the plan was for Kong to have an actual throne and be worshipped by the natives of the island he calls home. This would have made for an interesting twist on the iconic monster being an actual "king" to these people.

Why was it scrapped? We don't know, but perhaps it just seemed too silly, especially as Kong's relationship with humanity is developed quite slowly throughout Kong: Skull Island. Thoughts?
