Godzilla: Monster Planet Trailer (English Subs)
Plot (Prequel and Introduction to this Universe)
During the last summer of the 20th Century, on that day, human beings learned that they are not the only ruler of planet Earth.
In this time, there is the appearance of giant living creatures, known as “Kaiju’s”, and the ultimate existence that destroys all monsters: Godzilla. The battle against kaiju’s lasted for half a century; human beings had experienced continuous defeat, and finally, humans have created plans to escape Earth.
In 2048, only those who were selected by the A.I. (managed under the central government boarded the inter-sidereal emigrant spaceship “Aratrum”) were allowed to leave Earth and head for the planet “Tau Cetus e” which lays 11.9 light-years away from Earth. The environmental conditions on the new planet, Tau e, were far beyond what the humans had initially predicted, and thus it ended up not being an environment habitable by human beings.
The young man on the emigrant ship: Haruo, saw his parents killed by Godzilla in front of his own eyes, he 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 decided to head back to Earth through a dangerous long-distance hyperspace navigation.
When they arrived, in Earth time, 20,000 years had already passed! Earth was now an unknown world with an ecosystem reigned by Godzilla.
Will humanity be able to win back the Earth?
