Netflix's Godzilla Anime Will Be a Trilogy, Title and Synopsis Revealed

A film project of epic proportions.

By //Entertainment

More news about our favorite monster from the Far East has just emerged. As previously reported, Netflix has planned to turn the popular kaiju title into a film but now it’s been revealed that it will actually be a trilogy. Additionally, the project is in anime form — a first for Godzilla and is slated to be streamed across more than 190 countries on the global entertainment platform. The official name of the project is Godzilla: Monster Planet and the synopsis can be read below:

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 have experienced continuous defeat, and finally plan 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?

The first part for Godzilla: Monster Planet is expected to release in November. Stay tuned with us for an exact date.
