Godzilla: Monster Planet (anime movie)

Post by Tregarde » 07/06/17

Anime feature film Godzilla: Kaiju Wakusei (Godzilla: Monster Planet) is slated for a November release in Japan and internationally on Netflix after that. Here is the flick’s debut trailer.

Twenty thousand years in the future, the Earth is overrun with Godzilla and other kaiju. Humans arrive, set to take back the planet from those monsters.

Kobun Shizuno, who’s helmed several Detective Conan movies, and Hiroyuki Seshita, who directed the Ajin anime, are co-directing, while Gen Urobuchi of Madoka Magica fame is penning the story.

Curious. Someone decided to leap ahead. Stop telling Kaiju origin stories. Of course, the assumption is that Humanity found itself driven from the Earth entirely. But the stories told thus far suggest that some aspect of Humanity and the Kaiju are compatible. Are there pockets of Humanity on Earth who get along just fine in the world?

Sci-Fi Japan translated press notes from Toho Studios. It's pretty extensive, with bits about the production, cast, crew and story. Plus shows some new pictures of the world and kaiju.

Official description, in somewhat broken English:
“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 has experienced continuous defeat, and finally plans 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?”

Of course it would have some peppy J-pop song.

But otherwise, still kinda looking forward to this.
