On Godzilla Day, Toho debuted the new logo to market Godzilla's 70th Anniversary. The 65th Anniversary logo highlighted Shin Godzilla's design. For the 70th, the logo appropriately silhouettes the original 1954 Godzilla. Take a look at the dramatic animation Toho dropped:
For a comparison of the 70th Anniversary logo with prior anniversaries, take a look at the collage created by GR-7 on Twitter:
Expect to see the 70th Anniversary logo on merchandise and other marketing campaigns for the next year!
This past Godzilla Day, in addition to the CG short film, Godzilla vs. Megalon, another short film (Fest Godzilla 4: Operation Jet Jaguar) will be produced by director Kazuhiro Nakagawa. Nakagawa directed the tokusatsu shorts for the last three years, Godzilla Appears at G-Fest (2020), the Godzilla vs. Hedorah short and Fest Godzilla 3: Gigan Attacks. Nakagawa also directed episodes of Ultraman Z and the current series, Ultraman Decker.
This year's festival will also include the debut of a Jet Jaguar suit replica. Slated to show up in Nakagawa's short, the new suit was built by Shinchi Wakasa, the suit designer for the Millennium series Godzilla suits (sans "GMK") and popular Heisei series villains such as Destoroyah, SpaceGodzilla, MechaGodzilla, Rodan and last year's Gigan replica suit.
Plenty of other exciting announcements and merchandise is expected this year as well. You can watch the events live on the Youtube Godzilla Channel. Stay tuned for more information as it comes.
