GODZILLA: The Planet Eater (GODZILLA 星を喰う者,   Gojira Hoshi o Kū Mono) is an 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. After making its world premiere at the Tokyo International Film Festival on November 3, 2018, it was released to Japanese theaters on November 9 and was became available to stream worldwide via Netflix on January 9, 2019.[3]

Description

"A door opens and a golden seal shatters a star...

In the early 21st century, Mankind lost the battle for planet Earth to Godzilla, and has taken to the stars aboard the migrant ship, Aratrum, in search of a new home. Unfortunately, the search ends in vain, forcing them and their alien allies back to Earth. But, due to a distortion in space-time caused by the long-distance sub-space jump, 20,000 years have passed in their absence, and the Earth is a wholly different place.

The planet's flora and fauna now embody and serve Godzilla. Earth is a monster's planet, ruled by the largest Godzilla ever at 300 meters in height… Godzilla Earth.

The human protagonist, Captain Haruo Sakaki, yearns to defeat Godzilla and retake the planet for mankind. There, he meets the Houtua tribe, aboriginal descendants of the human race. The Houtua twin sisters, Maina and Miana, lead him to the skeletal remains of Mechagodzilla, an old anti-Godzilla weapon, which to everyone's surprise is still alive in the form of self-generating nanometal. Taken from the Mechagodzilla debris, the nanometals have gradually been rebuilding a “Mechagodzilla City,” a potential weapon capable of destroying Godzilla Earth.

As the strategy develops, a rift forms between the humans and the Bilusaludo, one of two alien races that had joined the humans on their exodus from Earth. Their leader, Mulu-elu Galu-gu, believes that the secret to defeating Godzilla lies in the use of superhuman powers — namely, the nanometal integration — but Haruo resists, fearing that in defeating monsters, they must not become monsters themselves. Haruo ultimately uses his means for defeating Godzilla Earth to destroy the Mechagodzilla city so as to prevent nanometal assimilation, killing Galu-gu. However, his childhood friend, Yuko Tani, has been absorbed by the nanometal integration and fallen into a coma.

Once again, the human race is lost. Metphies, the archbishop of the religious Exif alien race, marvels that Haruo once again survived the battle with Godzilla. He espouses that Haruo's life is a “miracle”, and begins to attract a stronger following to the Exif faith. The aliens have secretly harbored this outcome as their ultimate goal. Miana and Maina issue warnings against Metphies, while Haruo begins to question mankind's next move.

With no means for defeating Godzilla Earth, mankind watches as King Ghidorah, clad in a golden light, descends on the planet. The heavens and earth shake once again as the war moves to a higher dimension.

What is Godzilla, exactly? Does mankind stand a chance? Is there a future vision in Haruo's eyes? Find out in the finale, when it all becomes clear..."

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 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.[4] 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 Ghidorah, while his roar can be heard. The teaser also revealed the film's English title as GODZILLA: The Planet Eater.

It was announced on September 12 that GODZILLA: The Planet Eater would be making its premiere as the closing film of the 2018 Tokyo International Film Festival on November 3, 2018, the 64th anniversary of the release of the original Godzilla. A new screenshot of protagonist Haruo Sakaki from the film was also released, along with a brief description of the story, stating that the film would feature Godzilla Earth facing off against Ghidorah.[5] On September 14, the official poster was revealed for the film, depicting Godzilla Earth locked in battle with Ghidorah while Metphies cradles Haruo's seemingly lifeless body in his arms. The official website for the film was updated, providing both Japanese and English story descriptions for the film as well as updated cast and staff lists. It was also announced that singer XAI would be returning to perform the theme song for the film, "live and die."[4]

On September 20, Toho released 13 new screenshots from the film, most of which were previously included in a short brochure for the film distributed in Toho's cinemas. It also revealed some more details on Ghidorah, explaining that he has destroyed thousands of planets since destroying the Exif home planet of Exifcalus 100,000 years ago, and is worshiped by the Exif as the "Golden King."[4] On September 25, it was announced that a world premiere event would be held for the film on November 3, which is now certified as the national holiday Godzilla Day in Japan, as it premieres at the Tokyo International Film Festival. Directors Kobun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Seshita and voice actors Mamoru Miyano, Takahiro Sakurai, Kana Hanazawa, Reina Ueda, and Ari Ozawa will all be in attendance at the premiere.[4] On October 8, an artwork collaboration between GODZILLA: The Planet Eater and Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative was announced. Like the previous collaboration between GODZILLA: City on the Edge of Battle and Pacific Rim Uprising, the artwork for this collaboration is illustrated by mecha artist Hidetaka Tenjin.[6] The first official trailer for the film was uploaded to the TOHO animation YouTube channel on October 10. On October 19, it was announced that a red carpet event for the film would be held at the Roppongi Hills Arena on October 25, the first day of the Tokyo International Film Festival. Kobun Shizuno, Hiroyuki Seshita, Mamoru Miyano, Takahiro Sakurai, and "Godzilla" himself will all be in attendance.[4]

In an article published on October 30, The Washington Post reported that film directors Hiroyuki Seshita and Kobun Shizuno acknowledge that their film is so different it might disappoint some hardcore fans, but also say that is an intentional attempt to reach out to new audiences. Seshita states that he and Shizuno "welcome getting bashed by traditionalists," arguing that it proves more than anything they succeeded in creating something different. The two directors then state that rather than simply transferring the well-known tale into a computer animation, they have focused on what they call Shakespearean "human drama" and tackle complex issues, including the meaning of religion, in a futuristic post-apocalyptic universe. Shizuno admits that he is not a Godzilla "expert," so he simply made a film he thought would be enjoyable.[7]

Foreign Releases

Like the previous two entries in the GODZILLA anime trilogy, GODZILLA: The Planet Eater was released via Netflix exactly two months after its Japanese theatrical premiere, on January 9, 2019.

Reception

The first review for GODZILLA: The Planet Eater came from Joshua Meyer of /Film, following an advance press screening ahead of the film's premiere at the Tokyo International Film Festival. Meyer gives the film a positive review, and he argues that it "vindicates the trilogy in a way that manages to stay true to it while also being true to the franchise and what fans have come to expect when they sit down for a Godzilla movie." Meyer elaborates, saying that Ghidorah and the cult of characters surrounding him manage to provide the film with strong themes throughout its action scenes and character drama. Meyer is complementary of the character of Metphies, expressing his belief that the character's ambiguous intentions at the start of the film provide a fair deal of intrigue. Meyer goes on to say that there are many "wacky scenes and wacky lines of dialogue" in the film, but that they are "my kind of crazy." He acknowledges that a major criticism of GODZILLA: City on the Edge of Battle is that Godzilla only appears in the film's third act for a total screentime of five and a half minutes. Here, according to Meyer, scenes of monster action seem to come earlier in the movie, and despite a lack of cities to be destroyed, the sequences of Ghidorah approaching the Aratrum and Godzilla's confrontation with Ghidorah in an open expanse are highlights that make the movie feel like a Toho Godzilla film. Meyer believes that this film manages to provide a strong and satisfying conclusion to the trilogy: "When the cultists beseech Ghidorah, 'Bring us a glorious finish,' it seems those prayers have been answered for the trilogy itself." Meyer does point out flaws in the film, such as sub-par CG effects in one sequence and unfittingly peaceful music being used in the climactic battle between Godzilla and Ghidorah. He also says he feels that the framing for the monsters' battle is more impressive than the battle itself. Meyer raises the possibility that the theatrical presentation of the film may have helped it, and that he is unsure if it would leave the same impression for a viewer watching it on Netflix. Despite all the flaws, Meyer suggests that GODZILLA: The Planet Eater has many positive aspects and memorable moments that both make it stand apart from the previous films and retroactively improve the perception of those films. Meyer summarizes his thoughts with "Rather than revert to a big dumb monster movie, The Planet Eater is able to balance its kaiju action with life-and-death concerns while wrapping up threads of character drama woven through the trilogy as a whole... The movie plays with rich themes that might leave you thinking (or scratching your head) as you wait for the post-credits scene." Meyer says that the film's post-credits scene is worth watching if viewers are confused by the ending and seeking explanation, which was how he felt at first after finishing the film. However, he goes on to say that "the more I thought about the movie, the more I felt I understood the spirit of it and what it was trying to say about human nature through the lens of Japanese filmmaking." Meyer concludes by reflecting on the questions proposed on the film's official website: "What is Godzilla?" and "What should people 'do?'," and says "The Planet Eater raises interesting questions and the answers to those questions might be challenging for some viewers."[8]

Novelization

Main article: Godzilla: The Planet Eater (novelization).

GODZILLA: The Planet Eater received an official novelization published by Kadokawa on December 22, 2018. Like the novelization for GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters, it is written by Takahiro Okura and supervised by the film's writer Gen Urobuchi.

I saw the film and to be honest I enjoyed it! The monster fight kept me some-what entertained but I knew this film wasn’t about monster brawls. I love the character drama in these films, after seeing them over and over again it shows that this isn’t Godzilla’s story, its Haruo’s. You see him struggle through out the films making drastic choices to benefit humanity even though some of those choices brought the downfall of other characters. Not only that each of the monsters represent something, Godzilla represents Earth and its ecosystem, Mechagodzilla represents Human technology and civilization while Ghidorah represents space and religion. The first film was good but there really wasn’t any development with the characters until we saw City On The Edge Of Battle and The Planet Eater. 2014 I really did enjoy but the main problem were the characters besides Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) and Dr.Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) the reason is because there was no development nor were there complete story arcs. Shin Godzilla is an exception because its a plot driven film instead of a character driven film. Back to the anime trilogy, the characters had development with completed story arcs and each did have a time to shine in their own respected films. In the end the anime trilogy has shown itself be be a Sci-Fi/Drama series instead of a SciFi/Action series, there was action in it but the films mainly focus on the drama because we need to feel these characters motives and what drives them to their goals. And I do like the conclusion the trilogy has showing the Haruo grew during these past events annihilating himself with Yuko and the remaining Vulture to rid humanity of their past also to prevent Ghidorah from devouring the planet again. Overall I give it a 7.9/10

CanI just say how awesome this movie was?! The plot, the characters, the way Ghidorah was handled, the Mothra cameo, everything was beautifully crafted. Metphies was the best villain I've seen in a while in a Kaiju film, and despite his actions he was still given an honorable farewell. Couldn't be more happy with the results. There are definitely flaws, but they aren't too distactive from the overall product. I give it a solid 90%.

I watched the movie, and I know it's become cliche to hate on the anime films, but I honestly hated it. This movie made me question if someone slipped something funky in my drink during dinner or if I was on laughing gas. It makes Godzilla vs. Hedorah seem like a totally normal, not strange at all Godzilla film. It has all of this religious and philosophical mumbo-jumbo that doesn't make any sense in the slightest manufactured from cardboard cut-out characters and lackluster action. I was bored, perplexed, and extremely disappointing. There was so much cringe in this film too, especially that extremely forced sex scene between Haruo and one of those twin girls. How did such a simple story about humanity trying to take the Earth back from Godzilla that had so much potential for exciting monster action (like, I don't know, INTRODUCING MORE KAIJU in an EXCITING way instead of extremely dumbed down versions of them) and character development turn into this absolutely strange and yet boring disappointment? I will never watch a single one of the three anime films again.

These movies suck, because according to that SeS**Ta guy and his partner in crime, it was “intentional” to make these movies different (just to be different). And people who aren’t in their new “audience” are “traditionalists”.

Now that January 9th has passed (and after pre-ordering my S.H. Monsterarts toys), this s**tshow has FINALLY ENDED! So goodbye Seshita and Shizuno (or whatever the f**k your names are), KOTM hits theaters in 4 months!


(BTW, they have no respect. In other words, they can piss off! People shouldn't focus on making things different for difference’s sake, they should put quality into their work! It seems that people hate quality now a days.)

If there is one positive thing I can say about Planet Eater, is that unlike the other two I actually was able to feel a connection to some of the characters, specifically Haruo and Metphies in their final confrontation. I think it’s one of the very few scenes of emotional weight and character development.

People are continuing to take that interview with Hiroyuki Seshita out of context and insisting he intentionally made the movies different to piss of fans. That's not what he's saying at all. Seshita is a lifelong Godzilla fan, and he felt it was important to have a non-fan's perspective to try and make the films appeal to a broader audience outside of hardcore fans. So he told Kobun Shizuno to not watch any other Godzilla movies until the trilogy was finished, that way they would be able to combine the perspective of a fan and an outsider. Seshita was saying that the fact some traditionalist fans have hated the movies at least proves he did succeed in making the movies different, which was one of his goals. He doesn't say anything about how that reflects the quality of the films or even whether these people are justified or not, he is simply saying that it shows he achieved one of his goals with the trilogy.

Seshita and Shizuno also make it clear they were careful to not drift too far from what defines Godzilla as a character. They changed his origin, sure, but kept the basic design and abilities intact and were sure to portray him as a force of nature spawned as a consequence of mankind's recklessness, especially the use of nuclear weapons. Shizuno, even as someone who had only seen two Godzilla movies, was very careful not to ignore the core features of Godzilla as a character and tried very hard to remain true to it.

I don't care if someone likes or dislikes these movies; my point is that it's ridiculous how so many fans are throwing tantrums over a line from an interview that has been misinterpreted and taken out of context. This trilogy was never about changing things for the sake of being different or intentionally pissing off fans, it was about telling a different story that could reach audiences who were unfamiliar with Godzilla, and Seshita feels that some of the negative reactions the films have received at least show he managed to make it different.

Watched the movie. Better than the other two, but only just okay. Unlike the last two, there were actually some genuinely emotional moments, though there is still just as much technobabble in between. The fight wasn’t that interesting, it mostly comprised of Ghidorah just biting Godzilla and making him float. What elevates this movie over the other two for me is actually some good character development. I do have a question though. What was this film trying to say. It really doesn’t seems clear what the main theme of the movie was for me. The only two I can think of is that the writers are either reeling us

I would use this trilogy’s scripts as toilet paper, because they suck! I like Godzilla’s design, but these movies suck! Think about it, these plots make zero freaking sense, Mechagodzilla looks like a Bayformers reject, then they turn him litterly into Cybertron, Ghidorah looks like a cactus, the creators made these movies just to be different, and apparently “enjoy” being bashed by the “traditionalists”, as if we’re idiots!

But I’ll say this: I stopped watching this trilogy after Planet of the Monsters, and I wouldn’t watch the rest, even if someone payed me.

I heard about that interview. Some people are saying he “pulled a Rian Johnson”. I disagree, though. Neither Shizuno nor Seshita have outright dismissed all the criticisms as invalid, nor have they insulted those criticizing the film. Plus, they’re not calling people racist or sexist for disliking the film. Personally, I don’t think the directors of this film deserve all the backlash they’ve gotten. Sure, the films were not as good as they could have been, but they weren’t terrible. All he said was that he knew that “traditionalists” would criticize their work. He didn’t insult them, he didn’t say their opinions don’t matter. He just said that he knew their work would be criticized.

Ignoring whatever that was... I think these films have suffered from being, well, films. The Godzilla anime was originally planned as a TV show, but Toho wanted them in theaters because Shin Godzilla did so well. So Planet of the Monsters sets up a lot that doesn't pay off until City on the Edge of Battle, and City on the Edge of Battle sets up a lot that won't pay off until The Planet Eater. (I hope!) That's fine for a story presented in weekly installments or all at once, but telling it in three chunks over the course of a year leaves the first two feeling incomplete. So we end up talking more about how Mechagodzilla is different than why he looks different.

I really doubt it has anything to do with sex. Potential spoiler warning for anyone passing by, in the trailer and in some released screenshots you can see in multiple instances that Metphies does something with Miana. You can see blood on his hands in some shots and there's even a split second in the trailer where Miana looks to be crucified on a stake in the background. Haruo could be hugging her because she's injured or even dead. Upon closer inspection of that specific shot, it almost looks as if there is a pool of blood on the ground surrounding the rug they are laying on.

If she was crucified, then it's likely that she was stripped of her clothing. You can tell them apart only by their eyes / eyebrows. Maina typically has a more stern look. It seems like, from the images, Maina is with Martin tending to the Mothra egg and the one with Metphies is Miana. But, regardless of which one it is, one of the twins' bodies can definitely be seen dangling in the background of one of the shots and it only seems sensible that it'd be the same one of the two we see laying on the ground in a pool of blood.

What's with all the King Ghidorah hate? It would only make sense that Godzilla would fight his most famous enemy at the end of the trilogy and it makes more sense than SpaceGodzilla.

Because people are sick of him, or alternate Ghidorahs, being the big bad all the time. It's safe, predictable and repetitive. His fame doesn't immediately justify his presence.

The exact date for the Netflix release is January 9, 2019, exactly two months after the Japanese release.

Let's hope at least Ghidorah makes an actual appearance in the upcoming film, let alone in actual physical form.

People wanted SpaceGodzilla in the movie since he's the only kaiju in the known anime timeline that hasn't appeared in a book or movie. And then we got Ghidorah again...

Space-Godzilla was mentioned in the novels therefore people thought he was going to be the Final Boss in the Anime Trilogy instead of Ghidorah.

SpaceGodzilla isn't mentioned in the novels. He was name-dropped early on as one of the monsters that exists in the universe of the anime trilogy, and to date is the only one of the monsters that was mentioned not to appear in one of the films or novels. Most people were expecting him to be the villain of the third movie for this reason.

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.

All this fuss over a sentence in a Livedoor News article from over a year ago. History shows again and again that Toho is constantly tinkering with the monster rosters of its movies.
