Godzilla Dictionary [New Edition] (ゴジラ大辞典【新装版】,   Gojira Dai-jiten [Shinsō-ban], lit. "Godzilla Great Dictionary [New Edition]") is an updated 2014 edition of the Godzilla Dictionary released by Kasakura Publishing 10 years earlier. It profiles information on every Godzilla film produced from 1954 to 2014, including Godzilla Final Wars, which had been excluded in the previous edition, and Legendary Pictures' Godzilla.


The book was published by Kasakura Publishing on August 7, 2014 to coincide with Legendary Pictures' Godzilla. Read from right-to-left, it contains 359 pages, the first 18 being in full color - with the first 11 being reserved for information on the new Hollywood film - and the rest in black-and-white. The book contains a vast array of in-universe information about the Godzilla franchise, segregating entries on the Toho films toward the end, separate from the monsters, weapons, vehicles, races, characters, terminology and so on found throughout the bulk of its pages.
