Well it's about time we got a real update on this! The highly anticipated Godzilla anime has received it's official title and full plot description and I couldn't be more excited. We also got our first look at the main character via a new poster. Check it out!
Anime news network broke the news when the main website godzilla-anime.com updated for the presentation to come within the next few days during AnimeJapan. Here is the translated Story details:
The last summer of the 20th Century. That day, the human beings learn that they are not the only ruler of the planet Earth.The appearance of the giant living creatures “Kaiju's” and the ultimate existence that destroys all monsters: Godzilla. Through the battle against kaiju's that lasted for half a century, human beings has experienced continuous defeat, and finally plans to escape from the Earth. And in 2048, only those who were selected by the A.I. managed under the central government boarded the inter-sidereal emigrant spaceship “Aratrum” to head for “Tau Cetus e”, the planet beyond the distance of 11.9 light-year. However, the environmental condition differences between that of the Earth and Tau e, which they finally arrived after 20 years were far beyond the predicted numbers, and was not an environment considered to be habitable by human beings.The young man on the emigrant ship: Haruo, who saw his parents killed by Godzilla in front of his eyes when he was 4 years old, had only one thing in his mind for 20 years: to return to the Earth and defeat Godzilla. Shut out from the possibility of emigration, as the living environment in the ship deteriorates, the group of “Earth Returnists” led by Haruo became the majority, and determines to head back to Earth through a dangerous long-distance hyperspace navigation. However, the Earth they have returned has already passed the time of 20,000 years, and has become an unknown world with the ecosystem reigned by Godzilla.At the end, will human beings win back the Earth? And what will Haruo see beyond his fate?
This sounds super exciting and matches up with all of the futuristic concept we have seen thus far. I like the idea of the humans leaving earth to avoid destruction by the Kaiju and then getting to the supposed savior world and realizing they could not live there. We haven't seen what this Godzilla looks like yet but if the plot description is anything to go off of, I foresee a super ancient look to him once they return. Maybe he'll have a super traditional look at the beginning though. We'll have to see.
Another big piece of news with this update is that the official full title of the film is 'Godzilla: Kaijū Wakusei (Godzilla: Monster Planet)'. There is also a tagline beneath the title on the poster that reads "We will definitely take back this 'Planet'". The poster also shows off some cool two legged mechs so I can almost guarantee the main character will probably have a direct confrontation with Godzilla at some point in the film.
'Godzilla: Monster planet' will be released in November 2017 into Japanese cinemas but will arrive sometime later this year worldwide on Netflix.
