Toho is Developing Two Anime Sequels to GODZILLA: PLANET OF THE MONSTERS
Toho's Godzilla: Monster Planet anime is set to stream on Netflix today November 17th. It looks really good, and I'm excited to check it out. Turns out, this is only the first film in a trilogy of Godzilla anime films that Toho plans on making! According to Variety, they are developing two sequels.
The first sequel is called Godzilla: Battle Mobile Breeding City, and it takes place in "a dark future in which surviving humans battle a Godzilla who has ruled the Earth for the past 20,000 years." Oh yeah, it will also feature Machagodzilla! A Godzilla robot doppelganger who first appeared in the 1974 Ishiro Honda film Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla. That's going to be awesome!
There's also some teaser art that you can see below that feature a group of humans standing in front of a massive mecha-like structure. That movie is set to open in May of next year. There are no details on the third film that they are developing yet.
As a long-time fan of Godzilla, this is exciting and I can't wait to see how this trilogy of Godzilla anime films will end up playing out.
