Gamera vs. the Space Icemen
History[edit | edit source]
Gamera vs. the Space Icemen was planned to be a sequel to the original Gamera film, set in the middle of an invasion on Earth conducted by ice-based aliens dubbed the "Space Icemen." Their invasion begins by setting off multiple volcanic eruptions across the world in an attempt to create a new ice-age, thus causing humanity to migrate underground, and giving the invaders control over the surface. However, the Earth-dwellers do not go underground as planned, and the Icemen decide to enslave the human-race instead. Luckily, Gamera is freed from his imprisonment in a Mars rocket, and manages to fly back to Earth just in time for the battle between mankind and the invaders, who unleash their own towering beast the "Ice Giant".

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The concept of the Ice Giant kaiju would later be adapted into both Barugon (a cold-themed villain, opposite to Gamera's fire-breathing), and Daimajin (a humanoid made from a non-organic element) for his first film.
- Although no concept art exists for the Ice Giant, according to author and tokusatsu historian August Ragone, the character would have been modeled after the Jötunn - fearsome Frost Giants from Norse mythology.
