Godzilla: Monster Planet Trailer

"Humankind vs. the largest Godzilla ever." Netflix Japan has released an official trailer for the anime movie Godzilla: Monster Planet, which will be available for streaming worldwide from Netflix later this month. Thankfully not long of a wait after opening in Japan in November. Japan's big movie studio Toho produced that new live-action Godzilla movie Shin Godzilla in 2016, and followed it up with this new anime movie. The two could not be more different, with this one being set in the far future. After half-century of the war against gigantic monsters, the human race, deciding to escape the planet Earth for safety, creates a small group to go on a exhibition mission back to the planet. Only to return to a world dominated by Godzilla. The voice cast includes Kana Hanazawa, Ken'yû Horiuchi, Yuki Kaji, and Kenta Miyake. Watch below.

Here's the new trailers for Hiroyuki Seshita & Kôbun Shizuno's Godzilla: Monster Planet, on YouTube:

Godzilla: Monster Planet

Years into the future and the human race has been defeated several times by the new ruling force of the planet: "kaijus". And the ruler of that force is Godzilla, The King of the Monsters. Humanity is in such defeat, plans to leave the planet have been made, and several people have been chosen to look at a new planet to see if it is inhabitable. Realizing it's not, though, the human race resorts to plan B: to defeat Godzilla and take back their planet. Godzilla: Monster Planet is co-directed by Japanese anime filmmakers Hiroyuki Seshita (Blame!, "Knights of Sidonia", "Ajin") & Kôbun Shizuno (Detektiv Conan, "Knights of Sidonia"). The screenplay is written by Gen Urobuchi, based on an original story by Gen Urobuchi. This first opened in theaters in Japan in November of 2017. Netflix will release Godzilla: Monster Planet streaming exclusively worldwide starting January 17th, 2018 later this month. Who's excited to see this? You down?

Have you listened to Ghibli scores?

tarek on Jan 8, 2018


or Jojo's sountrack. It's a shame they didn't go with Shiro Sagisu for this series.

Dan Hibiki on Jan 9, 2018

Will it come in English?

SteadyEddieTX on Jan 8, 2018


See answer above. It's being released worldwide on Netflix, so I assume they will have English subtitles.

So many disaster scenarios lately, regardless the culture they are coming from. It does look a bit ridiculous to me. I certainly won't look for it, but if I get the chance to see it sometimes in the late night, yeah, why not?

Disaster movies is a cyclic thing. I don't think we have more of them than before. in the 70s there was not less than 20 major disaster movies ( 2-3 per year). And this Godzilla thing is very specific to the Japanese popular culture. So nothing surprising here.

tarek on Jan 8, 2018


Ok, the thing about the culture, I said it myself, just differently. But tarek, I think you are wrong regarding the disaster ratio. I wouldn't really count those disaster stories, but there's much more of them. A lot of dangers that might destroy the world are all around us. Culture is reacting to everything that is around us. If I look for them randomly, I can find at least five of them almost every week in films or in the books. I agree on another account, there really isn't anything surprising about them, a lot of dangers (ecological, nuclear, etc.) are around us...

I might be wrong, but I see the propension of superhero movies / comics during period of wars/conflicts or economic depression, and disaster / horror movies during prosperous times.

tarek on Jan 9, 2018


You're not totally wrong. Except seeing prosperous times. But those superhero films are about impending global disasters. Almost every sf scenario these days is about some global downfall of everything. Books and comics books are also full of it, let's not start with that. I have no doubts in my argument whatsoever (although, I always value yours), but what i'm really thinking here is; should that be allegory or the metaphor of our time? In other words, is there something happening that will maybe make everything better or is it all just hardening and repeating all the bad things around us... As for the horror films, for some time, they rarely have something worthy of saying. Although, I noticed a few worht of mention. But comparing to anything else, that's the worst genre these days ...

I'm a sucker for something like this. Looks like a great time.

It's being released worldwide on Netflix, so I assume they will have English subtitles for it. But I don't think it will get an English dub version.

More cell shaded garbage. Barely can call this anime.

DAVIDPD on Jan 8, 2018


Best. Melodramatic. Language...EVER!!!!

KLD on Jan 8, 2018


Hope you are not being serious: Japanese don't talk, they scream. I am watching Attack on titans, and man! it's getting on my nerves. No one speaks in this anime. They all scream like mad.

I dont like this Cell-Shading Style of Art. So im out for this one.

John Wayne Cleaver on Jan 9, 2018


The artistry is amazing as usual.
