I was worried about that last paragraph being true. (Only a third of film, more like a prologue)

The first promotional image for movie #2 has surfaced, and even though this is a spoiler thread since this is a spoiler for the movie after next I feel the need for spoiler tags:

Spoiler Below:

Could this be this universe's take on Mechagodzilla?

It's bizarre-looking, whatever it is.
Good grief, is this film really coming out in Japan tomorrow?? When did that happen...

Apparently it's been confirmed: Mechagodzilla for the sequel. I think the images are throwing us off because we're expecting Mechagodzilla to have Godzilla-but-robot features, while this one does not and will resemble Godzilla more in shape and build. He reminds me of the Mechagodzilla designed by the Metal Gear artist for the Godzilla vs. Eva promotion:

Also, I saw on GMAN's twitter than an new article says this was initially pitched as a TV series, but Toho insisted on it being theatrical.

I feel like that's a fan justification... Although it will probably be how I justify it to myself.

The directors were interviewed in Da Vinci Magazine where they admitted Toho wanted the anime updated from a tv series to feature status thanks to Shin Godzilla's success. Justification or not, it's still a fact.

Here's a review for the film. Not mine just reposted.

Spoiler Below:
Giant monsters start showing up from the end of the 20th century and wreck Earth, the worst of all being Godzilla. Also aliens show up and befriend mankind and help fight the monsters but by the mid 21st century 90% of the population is dead anyway and mankind has to abandon Earth.

20 years later and one of the two immigrant ships is running out of resources with no habitable planet in site and they decide to warp back to Earth, especially since protagonist Haruo has been researching Godzilla and has a plan on how to kill him (turns out that Godzilla has a shield which is what let him do "OH GODZILLA! WHAT TERRIBLE LANGUAGE!" like tank 150 nukes at the same time and Haruo has figured out how to turn it off).

They go back to Earth where 20000 years have passed and send out a team to kill Godzilla. The team gets wrecked by the smaller flying monsters and they decide to evacuate but run into Godzilla (50 m) and carry out Haruo's plan instead. It succeeds and they kill Godzilla.

The professor then tells Haruo that what they killed couldn't have been the original Godzilla because it was completely identical to their 20000 year old data. The original Godzilla (over 300 m) then pops out of a mountain, shoots down the landing ships by barking supersonic waves at them, and then wipes out everything on the ground by waving his tail at them which shoots out a beam shockwave.

Post-credits scene has Haruo wake up after having been rescued by some indigenous girl (descendant of survivors from 20000 years ago) wearing weird junk. Final shot is a still of him and other people standing in front of Mecha Godzilla.

The immigrant ship Haruo is from has a population of under 4000 including the aliens.

The aliens had also lost their home planets and the alien elf priest voiced by Sakurai tells Haruo that cases like Godzilla where some sort of god monster shows up and wipes out all life on a planet is actually common throughout the universe and he says it might be some kind of divine punishment. He's also suspicious as "OH GODZILLA! WHAT TERRIBLE LANGUAGE!".

Next movie's subtitle is 決戦機動増殖都市/"War-Ending* Mobile Growing City" (seems to be referring to Mecha Godzilla)
(*"War-Ending"="Kessen" is usually used in "kessen heiki" which is a generic term for "superweapon" or "ultimate weapon" or whatever so don't read too much into it)

STUFF FROM THE MOVIE'S BOOKLET

The plan to escape from Earth only had two ships with 15,000 people on board to begin with. The Earth Federation's central government used an AI to select the people who'd get on the ships. Haruo's ship is 1.5 km long and housed 5000 immigrants, the other ship was 3 km and housed 10000. Contact with the other ship was lost immediately after departure.

The Godzilla defeated in the first movie is "Godzilla Filius" which broke off from Godzilla via cell division. The original is now 300 m tall and over 100,000 tons.

Brett Homenick didn't care for it:

I just returned from Godzilla: Monster Planet (or Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters or whatever we're supposed to call it this week), and I really don't have that much to say. It's essentially what I expected it to be.

Where Brett says:

There's really just not much to it


he pretty much supports my biggest concern/fear about this flick: that it exists solely for the sake of being a Godzilla anime, but nobody really had a story to tell that motivated that combination.
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

I'm not necessarily gonna avoid spoilers, but I'll keep away from plot breakdowns and the like.

Looks to be like your post-Showa Godzilla flick. Shin set the bar way too high.

In light of this incarnation of Godzilla recently being revealed as
Spoiler Below:
300 meters (~984 feet, 3.024 inches)
tall, here's a rough size comparison with the Godzilla from Shin Godzilla that I just made.

Spoiler Below:
Image


Believe it or not,
Spoiler Below:
the proportional size difference between this version and ShinGoji is greater than the difference between ShinGoji and the 1954 and Showa series Godzilla.

118.5 / 50 = 2.37

300 / 118.5 = 2.53164557

So this Godzilla is nearly a thousand feet tall? That's wild. I'm glad the first anime Godzilla is taking him there.

At some point I'm waiting for a Godzilla big enough to float through the galaxy devouring stars. A Galactuszilla if you will complete with purple armor.

Reminds me of that classic MGM cartoon, "King Size Canary".

So... the little Godzilla we see most of the film doesn't have the little beard but the papa Godzilla (the OG G) we see at the end does?

Okay so on that size chart: Junior, Little, Minya (FW), Minya, Minya (newborn), Godzillasaurus,???, ???, ???, ???

I actually assume the last two are Baby and GINO baby. But that third one.... is...a thing...? And the fourth one is...another thing?

^ Good question. This is all that zooming in yields:

Image


What's shorter than an adult Godzillasaurus and has the classic Godzilla silhouette? Maybe it's supposed to represent the real-life height of the G'84 cybot? And to the right of it, what stands about twice as tall as Baby Godzilla and Baby GINO?


I'm surprised that the early forms of G'16 aren't included. It even has the ghosts of Spacegodzilla and Mechagodzilla'93 on the far left.
