Japan’s New Godzilla Makes All Other Versions Look Like Ants
As we learned earlier this year, Netflix is near-ready to debut an all new Godzilla anime titled Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, continuing Japanese studio Toho’s long-running kaiju franchise. This updated take on the “king of the monsters” takes place in the future year of 2048, where humanity is forced to leave Earth following a never-ending influx of giant Godzilla-like creatures.
The ultimate version featured in the animation stands at a whopping 300 meters, or nearly a thousand feet tall, dwarfing the size of any previous Godzilla before it. Even 2014’s American incarnation, which is considered to be among the biggest, hardly matches this colossal beast, only measuring in at 108 meters (354 feet). A new piece of art by artist Noger Chen highlights the incredible size difference between it and every Godzilla thus far, which you can view below.
Recently hitting theaters in Japan, the new Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters film is set to tower over the rest of the world when it eventually hits Netflix sometime next year. A sequel to the anime adaptation is scheduled to release in 2018 as well, as the second installment of a planned mega-monster trilogy. The stateside edition of Godzilla will get his sequel adventure on March 22, 2019, leading up to an eventual face off against King Kong in 2020’s Godzilla vs. Kong.
What do you think? Does Japan’s new Godzilla reign supreme over all other monster kings, or is Toho just trying to one-up America’s Godzilla, but times a thousand?
