    Toho are working with the CG animation studio Polygon Pictures ('Star Wars: The Clone Wars', 'Transformers Prime', 'Transformers: Robots in Disguise', 'Knights of Sidonia') to create a computer animated Godzilla movie. The film is scheduled to be released next year.

    The movie will be directed by Kobun Shizuno (director of multiple 'Detective Conan' movies and 'Knights of Sidonia', co-director of 'Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone' and the 'Giant Robo' OAV) and Hiroyuki Seshita (co-director on 'Knights of Sidonia', visual effects supervisor on 'Kingdom Hearts').

    The main writer will be the infamous Gen Urobuchi ('Kamen Rider Gaim', 'Madoka Magica' and 'Fate/Zero' amongst many others).

    Very happy when I read the news. People were speculating when Toho trademarked a Godzilla anime website, it was going to be a tv show but nope its another movie. Hopefully Urobuchi offers up another unique take on the King of the Monsters. Shin Gojira was made by that anime writer from Evangelion and he made Godzilla into a zombie. I would like to see multiple kaijus fighting Godzilla. It's amazing how Godzilla 2014 spawned two new Godzilla movies from Japan and a sequel of its own for 2019. Thats 4 Godzilla movies for this decade, I never thought it was going to happen :anime:.

    Information below all from Anime News Network.

    'Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters' will be released in Japanese cinemas on November 17th and will apparently be on Netflix worldwide before the end of the year. It is the first of a trilogy of anime films telling one single story.

    The planet is beset by the emergence of colossal creatures that roam the earth, and king among them is “Godzilla”. For a half a century, these beasts engage in ferocious battle with each other and mankind. But humans, unable to compete, prepare for exile from their home planet. In the year 2048, a select few humans are chosen by the central government's artificial intelligence infrastructure to set out on an interstellar emigration vessel, the Aratrum, on an 11.9-lightyear journey for the planet Tau-e in the Cetus constellation. But when they arrive after 20 years of space travel, the remnants of mankind find the environmental conditions on Tau-e to be much different than expected, and basically uninhabitable by humans.

    On youth on board the emigration vessel, Haruo, had seen his parents killed by Godzilla before his eyes when he was only 4 years old. Ever since, he has thought of nothing but returning to Earth to defeat Godzilla. With the doors to emigration now closed, Haruo and other crew spearhead a “return to Earth” decision despite severely attenuated and hazardous conditions on board for such a long trip back.

    Somehow, the Aratrum makes the return journey in one piece, but the home they return to has become an alien planet. 20,000 years have elapsed, and a new ecosystem has emerged with Godzilla atop the food chain. Can mankind take back its native planet? Will Haruo get his revenge?
