Title Of Godzilla Anime Film Revealed As Godzilla: Monster Planet
The upcoming anime production will be the third feature film to star the King of the Monsters in the past three years, with the first being Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla in 2014 and Toho’s Shin Godzilla last year. Within the next few years, it will be joined by at least two other projects starring the radioactive lizard: Godzilla: King of Monsters, which is set for release in 2019, and Godzilla vs. King Kong, which will come out in 2020.
Additionally, the company released a synopsis detailing the background and setting of the film. Set in the middle of the 21st century, the movie will follow the efforts of mankind to reclaim Earth after giant monsters overrun the planet.
CBR.com, the source of this story, shares the following excerpt from the company’s synopsis:
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.
