It's just a sculpture, so this obviously isn't our final final look, but it's a good tease. That, and it actually resembles the cave paintings pretty well from the post-credits scene from Kong: Skull Island.
You know what'd be kind of hilarious? If Mothra was worshiped as a Goddess of WAR by the ancient Chinese due to how, well, DESTRUCTIVE a giant moth that can generate hurricane winds from the beating of her wings would be.
Very cool! Really looking forward to seeing more of Mothra, as she's always been one of my favorites.
I guess it should still be taken with a grain of salt as to whether this will really be what she'll look like in the final film or not, or if this is just early teaser stuff. But if this is her official silhouette from the film, it's interesting that overall she looks the most here like she did in GMK.
I wonder if Mothra will have any beam or energy-type weapons in the film, or if she'll be purely physical? The Heisei series Mothra and especially the Rebirth of Mothra incarnations all had lots of impressive energy weapons, which actually made Mothra a very powerful combatant, which allowed her to more easily go toe to toe with enemies like Godzilla and King Ghidorah. But then in the Millennium-era movies there seemed to be more of a push to return Mothra to more old school roots, with just hurricane winds, stingers, poison powder and the like.
And of course, I also have to wonder if Mothra might die in this new movie, since she's traditionally the Sean Bean of Toho kaiju.
I agree, I think there will be 2 generations of mothra's fighting in this one. A popular formula in a lot of Godzilla films as well in Rebirth of Mothra. this could be an interesting way of showing an adult Mothra in another film with different colors or patterns. It would be cool to see Kind Ghidorah just tear the adult Mothra apart. Giving the larva a good reason to team up with Godzilla and Rodan to combat Ghidorah. But all in all I love that they did not shy away from her original design. I think they got a lot of crap about the Godzilla they designed for 2014 that they thought changing any other monster would distract fans from the story of the film.
