The Eighth Wonder of the World has landed at San Diego Comic-Con, and boy, is he bigger than ever!

Kong: Skull Island reboots the franchise and will place the colossal ape in the same shared universe inhabited as Warner Bros. Pictures' Godzilla revival and presumably sets the scene for the ultimate showdown in Godzilla vs. Kong, slated for release in 2020.

Watch the hairy giant thump around his stomping ground in the all new trailer below:

The official synopsis for Kong: Skull Island is as follows:

A diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific — as beautiful as it is treacherous — unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.

King Kong's return to reign will be elevated by a number of big names including: Tom Hiddleston (the Thor franchise), Samuel L. Jackson (the Avengers franchise), Brie Larson (Room), Jason Mitchell & Corey Hawkins (both Straight Outta Compton) and John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane), among others.

Kong: Skull Island swings into theaters March 10, 2017.

Are you in for the return of the King?
