Netflix has recently made a big push to include more anime in its overall library of content. From Jaden Smith‘s ‘Neo Yokio’ to the reported 30+ new anime programs the service will be adding in 2018. Perhaps the most intriguing development though, is that Netflix has struck a deal with Toho (the company behind Godzilla) to be the exclusive distributor of the studios animated content in the USA and beyond. The first content to come of this deal is the new animated Godzilla film ‘Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters’. The film’s visuals are stunning and truly illuminate that Godzilla is a monster that can thrive in all mediums. The film is set to debut in Japan in November and is expected to hit Netflix later this year.
We’ve attached the new trailer and synopsis for ‘Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters’ below.
‘In the year 2048, the human race is forced to leave Earth after decades of losing against Godzilla and other giant monsters. They take a twenty year journey to another planet called Tau Ceti e, but upon arrival, they discover that the planet has become uninhabitable. As living conditions on their ship deteriorate, a young man named Haruo spearheads a movement to return to Earth and take it back from the monsters. The ship successfully makes the return voyage, but the crew discovers that twenty thousand years have passed and Earth’s ecosystem has evolved, with Godzilla reigning atop the new food chain.’ Via Wikipedia/Netflix/Toho
