The Official Godzilla Store website has been updated with details regarding the 6th annual Godzilla Festival in Japan. A countdown has been added to the site with the new key visual of Yuji Sakai's replica of the 1954 "ShodaiGoji" Godzilla suit. In his eyes reflect Gigan, honoring the Nebula M Spacehunter cyborg's 50th anniversary celebration.

In addition to the CG shortfilm, Godzilla vs. Gigan Rex, another short film will be produced by director Kazuhiro Nakagawa. Nakagawa directed the tokusatsu shorts for the last two years, Godzilla Appears at G-Fest (2020) and the Godzilla vs. Hedorah short from last year. Nakagawa also directed episodes of Ultraman Z and the current series, Ultraman Decker.

This year's festival will also include the debut of a 1972 Gigan suit replica. Expected to show up in Nakagawa's short, the new suit is being 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 and Rodan. The original Gigan (pictured below) has since degraded and lost to time.

Plenty of other exciting announcements and merchandise is expected this year as well. The events begin from noon-8:00PM, Tokyo time and will be streamed online. Stay tuned for more information as it comes.

MemberAnguirusSep-20-2022 10:58 AM

That's a set photo of the original suit in 1972. The replica will debut November 3rd.


MemberAnguirusSep-20-2022 11:18 AM

oooooohhhhhhh I thought THAT was the replica.


MemberGiganSep-22-2022 10:11 PM

Could we get an announcement on the next Toho Godzilla feature PLEASE??


MemberBaragonSep-23-2022 7:23 AM

Well toho just finished Shin Ultraman, and next years Shin Kamen Rider is coming out.


So i think its safe to saywe might not get a toho movie for a while. Maybe SP will continue or there will be a different animated project.

Reminder, we still don't know what this is: https://www.godzilla-movies.com/topic/50998


MemberBaragonSep-23-2022 9:10 AM

I dont think its a actually something tbh

Cool Godzilla

MemberGiganSep-23-2022 5:37 PM



MemberGiganSep-23-2022 5:41 PM

I want to see Monster X to appear

AdminGodzillaSep-23-2022 9:54 PM

Some insiders say otherwise, with multiple people calling the project Godzilla: Zero.

Not to mention it doesn't make a lot of sense to advertise a call for extras on the Godzilla app if it wasn't related in some way. And the fact Toho still hasn't announced what it is while it's in post-production points to a high profile secret.


MemberGiganSep-23-2022 10:28 PM

Kind of reminds of much Netflix was being dead silent about Stranger Things 4, a sharp contrast to the other seasons and how they were promoted.  And wouldn't you know it, people are calling this season the best.  So, maybe this "Godzilla: Zero" will be the same.


MemberGiganSep-23-2022 10:31 PM

And G. H. (Gman), I would definitely agree about it being an anniversary project.  Considering how Godzilla (2014) was given a first-look trailer in 2012, I wouldn't be the slightest surprised to see this get its teaser soon.


MemberBaragonSep-24-2022 8:47 AM

G. H. (Gman)

On Gojira+? I didnt see that when did it come out?


MemberBaragonSep-24-2022 8:48 AM


it is the best season.

G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaSep-24-2022 9:19 AM



MemberGiganSep-24-2022 7:35 PM

HinikunaGoji, not just the best season...but the best thing to come out of this entire decade and we're only 3 years in.


MemberBaragonSep-24-2022 8:39 PM


i dont even think i need to say what the best scene was.

Just perfect


MemberGiganSep-25-2022 8:28 AM

I would like to finish my godzilla marathon


MemberGiganSep-25-2022 9:20 PM

HinikunaGoji, Max's Favorite Song? The RUTH Remix Vs. Vecna? Eleven destroying the helicopter? The final scene of the season? Eddie's Guitar God Scene?

There. Are. So. Many. Options.


MemberBaragonSep-25-2022 10:38 PM


Thats fair but these two are my favorite

here and here



MemberAnguirusSep-26-2022 10:55 AM

maybe someone here can go to toho or legendary and be an extra or something to find out some info on godzilla vs kong 2 or godzilla:Zero.

espionage....of the kaiju variety.


G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaSep-26-2022 11:16 AM

People claiming to be extras have already been talking about Godzilla: Zero.


MemberGiganSep-26-2022 12:56 PM



MemberBaragonSep-26-2022 1:56 PM

After some scouring I did find some people talking about it


This one is pretty interesting

Im kinda sad this whole porkect slipped under my radar.

But it looks interesting, according to this article it is set in early postwar japan. That could be interesting.



MemberGiganSep-26-2022 2:07 PM

Perhaps a homage to the Showa franchise?  Revision of 1954?  Or perhaps a complete overhaul?
