It's Bigger! It's Better! Ladies and Gentlemen welcome back to SCRAPPEDATHON! The series where I take a look at the Godzilla movies that were never made. Today's movie is special because it is my personal favorite scrapped film, and that film is "Godzilla vs. Ghost Godzilla".

DEVELOPMENT

The year is 1994, Tristar has bought the rights to make an American Godzilla movie (even though it wasn't Godzilla at all). And in order for Tristar to do so Toho decided to that it was time to end the Heisei Godzilla series. There where several idea's and a few scripts that where created during that time, and one of them was the movie called "Godzilla. vs Ghost Godzilla. The film was going to be released on December 22, 1994 and we would have seen the Heisei Godzilla fighting the ghost of the 1954 Godzilla. However Screenwriter Kazuki Omori thought that the idea of three Godzilla movies were he fought monsters that resembled him (MechaGodzilla 2 and SpaceGodzilla) was simply "to much". The script was ultimately canned and was replaced by "Godzilla vs. Destoroyah".

Plot

Not much is known of the film's plot, outside of a couple idea's that would have been presented in the movie. For starters the ghost of the original Godzilla was going to posses the body of Godzilla JR and force's him to grow into a fully grown Godzilla that resembled the original Gojira's design. The movie was also going to incorporate the monster Anguirus, but it is unknown what his role would have been in the film.

New Kaiju

Ghost Godzilla- This is one of my favorite scrapped monsters, because it combines two of my favorite things, Godzilla and the Paranormal. Ghost Godzilla also has a very interesting design, it resembles a mixture of the Heisei Godzilla and the 1954 Godzilla. However it's skin is cracked and splitting apart, and has blank white eyes (just like the GMK Godzilla).

Final thoughts

I think this could have been a very good movie if it was made. I find the idea of Ghost Godzilla possessing the body of Godzilla Jr to be very cool, considering that Godzilla Jr is the only other living member of Godzilla's kind it would create an interesting conflict within him, it makes you wonder how Godzilla is going to stop his son. I do wonder what role Anguirus would have in the plot. Overall while I would have loved to seen this movie and how it would play out, I am ultimately happy with the movie that we got "Godzilla vs. Destoroyah" instead.

I can't really decide if I would have actually liked it.  It's a novel and interesting concept though.  But I do know that I didn't like what we got instead.

Odd thing to say when you mentioned Godzilla vs Destoroyah was in your top 5 G movies

 

Onto the topic, maybe it's because what replaced it ended up being my favorite Godzilla movie, but I'm not really into this idea. The Godzilla vs Godzilla idea was cool when I was a kid, but as I've gotten older the idea doesn't sit as well with me. IDK maybe the movie would have been great, but conceptwise I'm on the fence about it.

^I think he was referring to the 1998 flick for some reason...

ULTRAZERO80 - How very neat! I am uncertain if the concept of Godzilla vs. Ghost Godzilla would have been viable; however, it is extremely compelling to have this information! Thank you ever so much for taking the time to create this and share it with us! :)

I do think it would be an amazing movie but till now i can't imagine a different way to end this movie that differ from Godzilla vs Destoroyah because of the battle between Godzilla and Godzilla JR.

I would appreciate some thoughts on this... let's imagine how this movie  could be.

This is basically just asking "Who would win between a 50-meter ghost Godzilla and a 100-meter tall alive Godzilla?". I honestly don't know how this would've worked.

Im glad we got what we got back in 1995. But to see this kind of idea on screen would be cool. I cant say that Im not intrigued.

^I think the way the size would go is that Godzilla Jr. would be possessed and mutated to be much larger Godzilla. That's how it would have worked out to be.

YOU.....DUMBBELL!

Recently I have discovered that there is actually a ton of new info surrounding this scrapped idea, so I will probably update this topic to include the many different ideas that were thrown around for Godzilla vs. Ghost Godzilla.
