Surprise! Toho has uploaded an HD version of Operation Jet Jaguar with cleaned up audio! This is not something they did with last year's tokusatsu short, so take advantage of this while it's still up!
Both versions will remain accessible here in case one goes down. Enjoy the clash between Godzilla and Jet Jaguar!
The latest tokusatsu Godzilla short was streamed live during Godzilla Day! Jet Jaguar clashes with Godzilla before a surprise cameo crashes the party. Unfortunately, Toho has decided to not upload the special effects battle, so we hope you can for as long as it's up. Take a look before it's gone!
(Note: The short was pulled from the live stream, thus the audio issues that persisted during the stream are unfortunately heard during this recording.)
The short is directed by Kazuhiro Nakagawa who directed the last two Godzilla Festival shorts: Godzilla vs. Hedorah and Godzilla Fest 3: Gigan Attack. He was an assistant director on the Attack on Titan live action films, Shin Godzilla and Shin Ultraman. Additionally, he directed shorts for Godzilla theme park attractions including, Godzilla vs. Evangelion: The Real 4-D and the zip line attraction, Godzilla Interception Operation Awaji. He's also directed two episodes of Ultraman Z during the pandemic.
The new Jet Jaguar suit was constructed by suit maker Shinichi Wakasa. Wakasa was responsible for a variety of Heisei series adversaries, including Rodan ('93), MechaGodzilla ('93), SpaceGodzilla and Destoroyah. He also constructed the Millennium Series Godzilla suits (sans "GMK") and the new Gigan suit from last year's Gigan Attack. The new suit is based specifically on the 1973 Jet Jaguar suit seen in Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973) originally built Nobuyuki Yasumaru and Tomoki Kobayashi, both who were also responsible for the 1973 Godzilla suit, Megalon and Showa MechaGodzillas.
This is one of two shorts that premiered during the festival. The CG animated Godzilla vs. Megalon was released as well.
