GODZILLA: The Planet Eater (GODZILLA 星を喰う者,   Gojira Hoshi o 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. After making its world premiere at the Tokyo International Film Festival on November 3, 2018, it will be released to Japanese theaters on November 9 and will become available to stream worldwide via Netflix in early 2019.

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..."

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 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.[2] 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.[3] 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."[2]

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."[2] 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.[2] 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.[4] The first official trailer for the film was uploaded to the TOHO animation YouTube channel on October 10.

It's January 9, 2019 to be exact, two months after the Japanese release. Also, Ghidorah's page under Origins section says 100,000 years ago while this page says it's 10,000. It is causing confusion for some users? It is 10K or 100K years ago?

So at one point in the trailer, Haruo is in the Houtua hideout hugging one of the twins. But if you look closely, the twin doesn’t appear to be wearing any sort of clothing. It’s almost as if she is, how do I put it on a wiki related to Godzilla, nude. Toho... WHY?!!? Does this mean a *** scene will happen?! Oh dear god no!!! Why would you take a flipping Godzilla movie and sprinkle hentai all over it!!?

Sorry for the rage. But seriously, I hope this isn’t the case.

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.

Then how does that explain her not wearing anything. And how can you tell Miana and Maina apart? They look exactly the same.
avatar

Les

Score 0
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.

Ghidorah is literally shown locked in combat with Godzilla, not just ominously superimposed in the background like Mechagodzilla was.

You know, I'm still bummed out about no SpaceGodzilla, BUT if they bring King Ghidorah back to his roots and make him a force of extraterrestrial nature, going from planet to planet, destroying all in his path, THEN this could be awesome!


Then again, I thought MechaGodzilla evolving and growing into a city over the years would lead to the city transforming into a giant MechaGodzilla, you know, like Trypticon from Transformers, but that didn't happen

I'm fairly certain those are corona beams, thus, SpaceGodzilla, not KG. SpaceGodzilla eats supernovae. Also was confirmed to make an appearance. Toho/Polygon had better put Him in. I don't stand for him being neglected again for that chump Ghidorah. SpaceGodzilla is the True King.(Seriously, we've had enough KG.)

Nope, Toho lied to us about that, and just going to go with King Ghidorah even he's on the 2014 film sequel in 2019.

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.

SpaceGodzilla will have to make an appearance in some form. Toho clearly listed him as one of the monsters who will make an appearance in the universe. And it wouldn't be good to have him in the manga(why the fuck doesn't that any English translations yet?) or a novel.

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

Mechagodzilla isn't in the MonsterVerse, therefore he technically isn't in all eras. If we're talking about just the Japanese eras, then sure, he is.

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? He's in Project Mechagodzilla) and Mechagodzilla ~ or Godzilla, Mothra, Mechagodzilla going against SpaceGodzilla. (You know, the whole... 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.)
