So it looks like we are getting a Groot-zilla for Animezilla.

^Hmmm... like a god of the Earth or something of that nature.

The Bandai was blue, right? Maybe we're seeing different incarnations of Godzilla within the movie's extended timeframe?

Maybe Godzilla grows to such a gigantic size over 20,000 years that forests and other ecosystems start growing on his body. Maybe those soldiers in the forest are actually traversing Godzilla.

This is a fan edit. So far he looks metallic blue.

Whoa. Sci-Fi Japan's article clarifies some things about the plot from the press notes...

http://www.scifijapan.com/articles/2017 ... rs-update/

Spoiler Below:
Godzilla 'originated from plant-based life' and has 'metal-like muscle fibers, which can generate a strong electromagnetic charge' - ! This is another radical deviation in the same way Shin Godzilla was, and I'm pretty okay with that.

I wonder if this means Godzilla will have an electricity-based breath weapon instead of the usual atomic breath or beam?


--- edit ---

Oh, and the aliens are called 'Xiliens' now?

Would have totally missed that Xilien reference. I guess we will be getting King Ghidorah in the trilogy too then-most-likely

This link shows even more of the lottery figure and it's quite spectacular:

Does he not have eyes? That would make sense if he's a plant that's evolved to mimic animal life.

So...I'm just curious, if this is supposed to be released in all territories in November, I'm surprised there has been no news about an English voice cast yet. I assume only being 3 months away the dubbing/ADR would have to be well under way, if not already completed...?

No eyes, huh. I wondered why we couldn't see them in the closeup at the end of the trailer.

I really don't think this will be the main Godzilla design. Given that this is a trilogy, I'm starting to suspect that one or more offshoot Godzillas will be the primary threat initially, and that the real Godzilla will only show up for a cliffhanger at the end of the first movie.

I certainly wouldn't rule out Godzilla having multiple forms, and we already know he has offshoots because that's what the servum are.

With three movies to fill I assume we're in for a string of surprises.

I know there's plenty of plant-based characters in pop culture, but the one really coming to my mind is Swamp Thing, specifically Alan Moore's reinvention of the character and the various abilities he had...

It does have eyes, it's just that they are really tiny. Also their color is similar to Godzilla's skin (bark?).

First pics of the promotional statue are appearing on twitter. He does have dark, deep-set eyes!

The more I see of this design, the more I like it. The plantlike aspects are weird but interesting. I feel like such a drastic change to the character should offend me, but at the moment, I'm simply curious to learn more about it. Overall, the design is sufficiently different from G2014 to allay my worries there. I especially like his wolf-like head (though I may not be in love with the tiny eyes). My fear now is that he'll actually look worse in the movie(s) than he does in figure and statue form.

Yeah, it has eyes. The toy sculpture looks incomplete anyway.

I'm not entirely sure what to make of this Godzilla design in that trailer since he seems to look so different depending on the shot. I do like how the design looks in the form of that statue and that figure. It's like the G'14 body shape with skinnier legs, longer feet, more jagged dorsal fins, and a wolflike face with a ghostly grin.

It looks like either he has no skin covering his "metal-like" muscles or they're just so thick and sinewy that you can see their exact shape bulging through his skin. Either way, this is not a scaly-skinned Godzilla which is an interesting aesthetic change.

This looks like an 80s Chinese knockoff of the legendary Godzilla. I am very disappointed with this design. Without the constraints of using a suit or doing live action filming, they could have made the Godzilla design for the decade and yet they went with the blandest, boring design they could have thought of.

Taking a good look at the lottery figure and the display statue really makes me thing more bark (like Mexi said) or roots, instead of muscle and sinew.

The more aI look at this thing the more I like it. I knew we'll have new creatures, but I hope we get to see some of the classic Toho creature reimagined as well.

Fanart from Japan is already going to town with Plant Godzilla, having him as a potted plant and such. Here's Nichikawa's contribution:

Wow -- that lottery figure really shows off that this is some sort of plant based Godzilla creature. It is nice to see a proper foot on the base Legendary Godzilla design -- the stump foot never made much sense to me.

If this "Godzilla" is not the real Godzilla it does make you wonder what it is exactly.
