Let's face it, size matters, especially when it comes to Godzilla. For whatever reason, there seems to be a jockeying between Hollywood and Godzilla's home town for who can produce the largest Godzilla for the big screen (excluding anime). Back in 2014 Legendary pushed the envelope by making Godzilla a staggering 108 meters tall. At the time, this was the largest Godzilla to date. Toho's response? Make him BIGGER! So, in 2016 they released Shin-Gojira and trumped Legendary by 10.5 meters making Shin-Goji and impressive 118.5 meters tall! Well, it would seem the tail measuring continues...
According to a Japanese publication shared to Twitter recently, Godzilla's official height in Mike Dougherty's 2019 sequel is a massive 119 meters tall!
Quite hysterical when you think about it, Legendary took Shin-Gojira's record and added an extra half meter to Godzilla's height for King of the Monsters - making KOTM Goji the biggest Godzilla from any film to date, yet again!
Your move, Toho.
This also means Kong will need to seriously beef up for his match with Godzilla next year. Although we already know Kong was an adolescent in Kong: Skull Island, it will be difficult to size up a 119 meter tall Godzilla!
In addition to Godzilla's height in KOTM, the same publication also confirmed heights for Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah as well:
Mothra: 15.8 meters
Rodan: 46.9 meters
Ghidorah: 158.8 meters
Will Toho keep the trend going and introduce an even larger Godzilla to the big screen next? We'll have to wait and see...
