Godzilla vs. AstroGodzilla (ゴジラVSアストロゴジラ,   Gojira tai Asutorogojira) is an early concept for the sixth entry in the Heisei Godzilla series, and predecessor to Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla.

Plot

Godzilla battles against an extraterrestrial clone of himself named AstroGodzilla, born from Biollante's cells which escaped into outer space, who leads an army of giant dragonflies. This army of space insects attacks LittleGodzilla on Birth Island, but Godzilla arises to defend his adopted son. When AstroGodzilla takes control over the minds of LittleGodzilla and G-Force psychic Miki Saegusa, Godzilla must team up with G-Force's newest mech MOGUERA and Mothra to defeat his alien clone and save his son.

History

After Emperor Ghidorah was discarded as Godzilla's enemy for the sixth Heisei film, Toho continued to pursue an extraterrestrial foe for the King of the Monsters. This time, the antagonist was to be a clone of Godzilla himself, born from G-cells carried into outer space. This concept was considerably more ambitious than the final product would be, featuring an army of giant alien dragonflies controlled by AstroGodzilla and Mothra as Godzilla's ally along with MOGUERA. Shinichiro Kobayashi, writer of Godzilla vs. Biollante's original story, submitted a draft which built on this concept, though it made Godzilla's alien clone, now dubbed Crystal Godzilla, crystalline in origin. This eventually led to Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla.

I still really liked this draft rather than Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla, but too bad the film was scrapped without any good reasons expect for "budget issues".

Question is, is the full draft itself available?

Besides, a lot of Godzilla films were scrapped due to budgets.
