‘Godzilla: Monster Planet’ Has Debuted Both An Official Poster And Synopsis
Earlier this year, we learned that Godzilla would be stomping and roaring its way to the small screen through an anime film. Well, now through the website Godzilla-anime.com, we have a fully-fleged and incredibly detailed plot synopsis along with a poster and pieces of conceptual art.
The plot goes as follows:
“The last summer of the 20th Century. That day, the human beings learn that they are not the only ruler of the planet Earth.
The appearance of the giant living creatures “Kaiju’s” and the ultimate existence that destroys all monsters: Godzilla. Through the battle against kaiju’s that lasted for half a century, human beings have experienced continuous defeat, and finally plan to escape from the Earth. And in 2048, only those who were selected by the A.I. managed under the central government boarded the inter-sidereal emigrant spaceship “Aratrum” to head for “Tau Cetus e”, the planet beyond the distance of 11.9 light-year. However, the environmental condition differences between that of the Earth and Tau e, which they finally arrived after 20 years were far beyond the predicted numbers, and was not an environment considered to be habitable by human beings.
The young man on the emigrant ship: Haruo, who saw his parents killed by Godzilla in front of his eyes when he was 4 years old, had only one thing in his mind for 20 years: to return to the Earth and defeat Godzilla. Shut out from the possibility of emigration, as the living environment in the ship deteriorates, the group of “Earth Returnists” led by Haruo became the majority, and determines to head back to Earth through a dangerous long-distance hyperspace navigation. However, the Earth they have returned has already passed the time of 20,000 years, and has become an unknown world with the ecosystem reigned by Godzilla.
At the end, will human beings win back the Earth? And what will Haruo see beyond his fate?”
The revenge story concept between Haruo and Godzilla is quite the interesting premise, eh? However, what is slightly disappointing is no other Kaiju (other than Godzilla) is directly referenced within the synopsis.
However, I’m hoping for Mothra, King Gidorah and Gigan to make an appearance within this movie as potential enemies of Haruo or Godzilla.
Godzilla: Monster Planet smashes its way onto Japan’s silver screens on November 2017 and will be released onto Netflix directly after the end of its theatrical run.
