Godzilla 3 (1991)
Godzilla 3 (ゴジラ３ was a tentatively-titled proposal for the third Gojira Surī)Heisei Godzilla film. A direct sequel to the unmade Mothra vs. Bagan, the film was to be the second entry in a tetralogy of interconnected Godzilla and Mothra films. Ultimately, the concept was reworked into Godzilla vs. Bagan before being discarded in favor of Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah.
Plot[edit | edit source]
Godzilla recovers from the effects of the Anti-Nuclear Energy Bacteria and returns to Japan. Meanwhile, humanity begins to uncover the origins of Bagan, the ancient monster recently defeated by Mothra.
History[edit | edit source]
Toho originally intended to follow the film Mothra vs. Bagan with a connected Godzilla film the following year in 1991. The film would continue to explore the origins of Bagan while continuing where Godzilla vs. Biollante left off. This was to be the second entry in a tetralogy of interconnected Godzilla and Mothra films, eventually culminating in a meeting between the two monsters. However, this idea was cancelled, along with Mothra vs. Bagan, following the disappointing box office returns of Godzilla vs. Biollante, which raised concerns about Mothra's ability to carry a film herself. Toho replaced the idea for Godzilla 3 with a proposal in which Godzilla would battle the unused Bagan, and also considered producing a remake of King Kong vs. Godzilla, before deciding to revive Godzilla's arch-nemesis King Ghidorah for Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- GODZILLA 3 was also the tentative title for a planned third entry in TriStar Pictures' unrealized trilogy of American Godzilla films. It was also the title by which Godzilla vs. Kong was commonly referred to by fans prior to being announced.
