GODZILLA: The Planet Eater (GODZILLA 星を喰う者,   Gojira Hoshi wo Kū Mono?) is an upcoming anime science fiction kaiju film produced by Toho Animation and animated by Polygon Pictures, and the third entry in a trilogy of animated Godzilla films. It will be released to Japanese theaters on November 9, 2018, and will become available to stream worldwide via Netflix sometime later.

Marketing

The Japanese title and release date for the third entry in the AniGoji trilogy were revealed on May 18, 2018, via promotional pamphlets distributed during the Japanese theatrical release of the second entry, GODZILLA: City on the Edge of Battle. The front of the pamphlet depicts three intertwined glowing dragon-like necks and heads, clearly representing King Ghidorah. The back of the pamphlet features an Exif symbol glowing like the dragon heads on the front, along with a tagline that roughly translates to "Bow down and worship the golden demise." On May 28, Toho and Polygon officially announced the film and released the teaser poster online. The official website stated that the film would be the "final chapter" of the saga and would reveal the meaning of the name "Ghidorah" spoken by Metphies. It also promised that the film would finally feature a monster showdown.[1] On August 1, a brief 15-second teaser for the film was uploaded to the TOHO animation YouTube channel, featuring a clip of Godzilla Earth from the end of the previous film and narration from Metphies before showing the teaser image of King Ghidorah, while his roar can be heard. The teaser also revealed the film's English title as GODZILLA: The Planet Eater.

What's with the damn Ghidorah controversy? Just drop it, of course Ghidorah would appear anyway. SpaceGodzilla isn't even very well known by a lot of people.

You don't get it don't you? What happens if Legendary announced that Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah will be on their next Godzilla film and later it was revealed as different monsters? That is what happened to this film, they lied to the public when they announced the monsters confirmed to appear.

An article published by Livedoor News on June 19, 2017 also mentions that Hedorah, SpaceGodzilla and Moguera are a part of the film's universe.

MOGUERA and Hedorah appeared on the first prequel novel. SpaceGodzilla still doesn't have any appearances.

Most people were expecting him to be the villain of the third movie for this reason."

If Ghidorah isn't a dragon in this (which I would honestly prefer), I think the best possibility is that he is a sentient star. I feel that would make sense considering how hot stars are and some in particular - such as neutron stars - have an exceptionally strong gravitational pull.

Here's a video from a documentary detailing what would happen if a Neutron star collided with Earth:

Then where is he? The universe of the anime trilogy has ended with this film where Godzilla Earth battling King Ghidorah, so if SpaceGodzilla is confirmed to appear, then he should be in this film and not Ghidorah, plus we get another Ghidorah appearance like only seven months after this film gets released.

According to accounts from people who have seen City on the Edge of Battle, as Shinomura said, there is a post-credits scene where Metphies reveals "Ghidorah" to be an Exif holy word, signifying a destructive force. That plus the poster and tagline make it fairly obvious that the movie will be featuring King Ghidorah. I too was hoping for a SpaceGodzilla appearance, but with the roster already at Godzilla, Mechagodzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah, and maybe even Battra... SpaceGodzilla feels pretty unlikely.

The problem is, this is the final film of the trilogy, and there is no third prequel novel due to Project Mechagodzilla now already taking place after the events of the first film [when they leave Earth].

So if this film only features King Ghidorah, than SpaceGodzilla's announcement is a lie, and I'm pretty sure will cause fan outrage.

Anyone see a possible Batman V Superman vibe. Think about it, both movies have a character that are considered to be gods (Godzilla Earth and Superman). Both characters (Batman and Mechagodzilla/Earth Union) are using tech to kill a god. Both have villains that come from outerspace and strong enough to destroy worlds (King Ghidorah and Doomsday). Both have mythical female warriors (Mothra and Wonder Woman)

King of the Monsters,

I notice you're using the "Planet Killer" translation as well. I know "hoshi" was used in place of planets in Mysterians as well and went that route for other contextual reasons. Why did you decide to go that route?

I talked about this with some of the other staff members yesterday when we learned the title. We know "hoshi" literally means star, but in this context it's clearly referring to planets, much like how "Ekkusu Hoshi" in Invasion of Astro-Monster is universally translated as "Planet X" instead of "X Star." So we just decided to go with the translation we felt fit the context better and sounded more logical, even though it may not be the most literal translation, it captures the meaning of the Japanese title.

King Ghidorah?

Well, that's cool. I wonder how they will potray him, since Godzilla in the universe is a straight out bad guy, the most aggressive one I've ever seen (which kind of bothers me, I prefer Godzilla as an animal, like the Heisei era). Making Ghidorah a good guy has been done before in GMK, so maybe they'll do that here. However, the tagline suggests otherwise. We'll have to wait and see. I was kind of hoping for SpaceGodzilla. I'd LOVE to see him again. This also now makes King Ghidorah the second kaiju besides Godzilla himself to appear in ALL the eras. First being Mechagodzilla

Just for the sake of cataloging my train of thought before the surprise reveal of King Ghidorah, I personally thought that the third movie would EITHER have a showdown between Godzilla, Mothra, (Battra?

Godzilla Earth name thing... perfectly fitting for "Godzilla Earth" to fight "Godzilla Space" ~ and with the Exif commenting on "monsters like Godzilla" being out there and it being the only confirmed monster in the timeline that didn't appear in the first prequel novel.)
