The official website for the Godzilla anime film has updated with new details for the sequel. As reported back in November, the film will be titled, “Godzilla: Decisive Battle Mobile Breeder City,” and will feature Mechagodzilla. Today it has been revealed that a new Godzilla will be shown in the film. The new version of Godzilla will be known as Godzilla Earth who will be fighting against Mechagodzilla in the film.
In addition, the official Toho Animation Youtube channel released a new trailer for Godzilla: Monster Planet.
The official website provided a synopsis for the film.
The planet is beset by the emergence of colossal creatures that roam the earth, and king among them is “Godzilla”. For a half a century, these beasts engage in ferocious battle with each other and mankind. But humans, unable to compete, prepare for exile from their home planet. In the year 2048, a select few humans are chosen by the central government’s artificial intelligence infrastructure to set out on an interstellar emigration vessel, the Aratrum, on an 11.9-lightyear journey for the planet Tau-e in the Cetus constellation. But when they arrive after 20 years of space travel, the remnants of mankind find the environmental conditions on Tau-e to be much different than expected, and basically uninhabitable by humans.
One youth on board the emigration vessel, Haruo, had seen his parents killed by Godzilla before his eyes when he was only 4 years old. Ever since, he has thought of nothing but returning to Earth to defeat Godzilla. With the doors to emigration now closed, Haruo and other crew spearhead a “return to Earth” decision despite severely attenuated and hazardous conditions on board for such a long trip back.
Somehow, the Aratrum makes the return journey in one piece, but the home they return to has become an alien planet. 20,000 years have elapsed, and a new ecosystem has emerged with Godzilla atop the food chain. Can mankind take back its native planet? Will Haruo get his revenge?
Godzilla: Decisive Battle Mobile Breeder City will premiere in Japanese theaters in May 2018 and later on Netflix worldwide.
