We now have our first good look at the King of the Monster’s colossal animated iteration courtesy of a new trailer for the upcoming feature from Toho Animation and Polygon Pictures. The official (and bilingual Japanese / English) website for the anime film has also been updated with a number of new still images, including the latest poster (shared below).
Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters「GODZILLA 怪獣惑星」sees a failed deep-space mission returning to a monster-ravaged Earth 20,000 years in the future, and doing battle with what they find there.
I was initially less than excited for this, but I’m warming more and more. If nothing else it takes the franchise in a previously unexplored direction, which is something I’m all for, and I dare say the latest design appeals. Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters will see theatrical release in Japan this November, with a worldwide release through Netflix to follow sometime thereafter.
