The official Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters website announced the film's composer today. Series veteran Takayuki Hattori will be scoring the animated feature. For Godzilla fans, Hattori is best known for his work on Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla (1994) and Godzilla 2000 (1999).
In addition to the Godzilla series, Hattori also has a great deal of experience with anime, including the Slayers series and the theatrical OVA series, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin. The composer should feel right at home scoring a Godzilla anime.
