Godzilla: Monster Planet Unleashes First Full Trailer

Kaiju fans got a brief glimpse of Toho's first animated Godzilla feature, Godzilla: Monster Planet last month, but now the studio has released the film's full-length trailer, giving audiences their best look yet at the King of the Monsters' newest adventure.

Although the trailer is unsurprisingly devoid of any English or subtitles, it offers an impressive display of the film's artwork and epic scale, featuring an abandoned Earth ruled over by Godzilla and an assortment of other massive monsters. Toho also unveiled a new poster for the anime that shows off Godzilla's spiked fins and massive bulk.

Toho's film synopsis was released last month:

The last summer of the 20th Century. That day, the human beings learn that they are not the only ruler of the planet Earth. The appearance of the giant living creatures “Kaiju's” and the ultimate existence that destroys all monsters: Godzilla. Through the battle against kaiju's that lasted for half a century, human beings has experienced continuous defeat, and finally plans to escape from the Earth. And in 2048, only those who were selected by the A.I. managed under the central government boarded the inter-sidereal emigrant spaceship “Aratrum” to head for “Tau Cetus e”, the planet beyond the distance of 11.9 light-year. However, the environmental condition differences between that of the Earth and Tau e, which they finally arrived after 20 years were far beyond the predicted numbers, and was not an environment considered to be habitable by human beings.

The young man on the emigrant ship: Haruo, who saw his parents killed by Godzilla in front of his eyes when he was 4 years old, had only one thing in his mind for 20 years: to return to the Earth and defeat Godzilla. Shut out from the possibility of emigration, as the living environment in the ship deteriorates, the group of “Earth Returnists” led by Haruo became the majority, and determines to head back to Earth through a dangerous long-distance hyperspace navigation. However, the Earth they have returned has already passed the time of 20,000 years, and has become an unknown world with the ecosystem reigned by Godzilla.

At the end, will human beings win back the Earth? And what will Haruo see beyond his fate?

Debuting in November in the United States on Netflix, Godzilla: Monster Planet is directed by Kobun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Seshita, and stars Yuki Kaji, Takahiro Sakurai, Mamoru Miyano, Junichi Suwabe, Kana Hanazawa and Tomokazu Sugita.
