Tell us about the individual personalities of the gorillas.

How do they emote?

Will a gorilla use tools often, like a chimpanzee?

Can a human develop a bond with a great ape?

Any chance they’d be protective of you, in the same way King Kong was of Fay Wray or Naomi Watts?

Do you plan to see the new King Kong movie?
