After months of speculation, and the underwhelming (though limited) Japanese theatrical release, Netflix has announced the release date for the first anime Godzilla film! Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters will hit the streaming service worldwide, Wednesday, January 17th, 2018! Mark your calendars, the release is only a week and a half away!

The film will be available in 190 territories including North America. There's no word on whether or not the film will be dubbed, though it seems unlikely--Especially given the Netflix trailer. Most likely it will be released in Japanese with subtitles.

You can watch the official Netflix trailer below:


In the year 2048, a select few humans are chosen by the central government's artificial intelligence to set out on an interstellar emigration vessel, the Aratrum, on an 11.9-light-year journey for the planet Tau Ceti e. But when they arrive after 20 years of space travel, the remnants of mankind find the environmental conditions on Tau-e to be much worse than expected, and uninhabitable by humans.

On board the vessel is a young man, Haruo. When he was four years old, he saw his parents killed by Godzilla before his eyes, and in the 20 years since he has thought about nothing but returning to Earth and defeating Godzilla. With their chance for escape to another world closed, and living conditions on the ship deteriorating, Haruo spearheads a movement to return to Earth despite the dangers of such a long return trip.

Somehow, the Aratrum makes the return journey in one piece, but the home they return to has become an alien planet. 20,000 years have elapsed, and a new ecosystem has emerged with Godzilla at its apex. Can mankind take back its native planet? Will Haruo get his revenge?

The final summer of the 20th century… when mankind learned it is no longer the sole ruler of planet Earth.

The planet is beset by the emergence of colossal creatures that roam the Earth, and king among them is "Godzilla". For a half a century, these beasts engage in ferocious battle with each other and mankind. Ultimately humanity, unable to compete, prepares for exile from its home planet.

Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters stars the voice talents of Mamoru Miyano (Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Ultraman Zero: The Movie), Takahiro Sakurai (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans), Kana Hanazawa (.hack//Quantum), Yuki Kaji (Attack on Titan), Tomokazu Sugita (Attack on Titan), Junichi Suwabe (Space Dandy), Kenta Miyake (Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn), Kenyu Horiuchi (Bleach, One Piece), Kazuhiro Yamaji (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children) and Kazuya Nakai (Dragon Ball Super). The film is directed by Kobun Shizuno (Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare) & Hiroyuki Seshita (Knights of Sidonia) from a screenplay by Gen Urobuchi (Kamen Rider Gaim).

The movie will hit Netflix worldwide January 17th, 2018.

The sequel, currently translated as Godzilla: Decisive Battle, Mobile Breeder City, hits Japanese theaters May, 2018.

The Legend of Brian

My body is ready! Sooner than I was expecting, but I'm not complaining. 

That was definitely a Millennium era roar, so will this film use a mix of roars from the entire series and not go in sequential order like Shin did?

I can wait 10 days. I'm so excited!


Mothra LarvaeMember75 XPJan-07-2018 8:14 AM

Wow Netflix is distributing the movie way faster than Funimation with Shin Godzilla, lucky my Monster Planet figurines came in the mail before the worldwide release

The Jurassic Bootleg

BaragonMember468 XPJan-07-2018 8:29 AM

No English dub? well, that's a bit of a disappointment.


TitanosaurusMember729 XPJan-07-2018 8:47 AM

Well, English dubs haven't exactly been well-received/done over the franchise's history.

When it comes to Japanese productions, it's usually better just to get subtitles. There are exceptions, but this trend is pretty consistent.

I suspect we would be waiting a bit longer if there was an English dub--So I'm fine with it. I'd never watch an English dub if it were an option anyway. The Japanese voice actors are too good.

Wow, was not expecting it this soon. A very pleasant surprise.


TitanosaurusMember605 XPJan-07-2018 10:42 AM

I'm fine with no english dub, I've never liked the dubbing. 

The Jurassic Bootleg

BaragonMember468 XPJan-07-2018 3:06 PM

I'm just going to wait for the dub, I'm not going to read the subs the entire movie(Don't ask why).

GodzillaAdmin5265 XPJan-07-2018 3:27 PM

You're probably going to be waiting a very long time.
