Godzilla Anime Film Gets A Title And Synopsis

Thanks to its newly launched official website, we've been showered with a ton of new details regarding the upcoming anime Godzilla movie.

Firstly, the film will be called Godzilla: Kaiju Wakusei (Godzilla: Monster Planet), and will take place in the future. Like, far, far in the future. 20,000 years to be exact. Read on for the official synopsis below.

Godzilla: Monster Planet comes from writer Gen Urobuchi and directors Kabun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Seshita. It will hit Japanese theaters in November and arrive on Netflix world wide sometime after. More details are scheduled to be unveiled at the Anime Japan convention on March 26, 2017. In the meantime, you can enjoy looking at the newly unveiled official poster, although it doesn't give us a look at Godzilla himself:

Official Synopsis

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, 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…?

Additionally, Anime Japan is gearing up for the Godzilla: Monster Planet presentation with a mecha from the film. Check it out:

Future? Planet dominated by giant monsters? Humans making their last stand against the King of the Monsters? Why has this not been done before? This is pure gold only an anime can pull off. I Cannot Wait! This is going to be good.

As someone who has been waiting and longing for a Godzilla anime for over 20 years, this is super satisfying and I'm stoked to see how it plays out.  Godzilla is so capable of being used in a wide range of storytelling that it's a shame most of the movies have been so restricted or under budget for these type of big stories.  Also really looking forward to seeing whether we'll get the Old Guard of the Toho monster stock or new baddies in this one.  Proud of them, the Godzilla anime finally happens, just way too long overdue!

An interesting take....... I had a similar idea of far-future Kaiju shenanigans, but not quite like this.

I look forward to seeing more of this.

I'm glad they're going totally out different than the movies we've seen. You don't have to worry about actors or effects, go balls to the wall with it.

This looks freaking amazing!!! Can't wait to hear more about it tomorrow, I really hope they show off his design. I'm hoping for a Rulers of Earth Godzilla like design. I was also hoping that we would see a TON of classic kaiju and I think my wish has been granted. The planet is literally overrun by kaiju so were bound to see plenty of the old ones and maybe even some new ones.

This also might confirm that Godzilla won't be the only monster in this movie, which I'm happy about.
