Godzilla is an upcoming Japanese animated tokusatsu kaiju film produced by Toho Company Ltd. and Polygon Pictures. It is the 30th film in the Godzilla series and the first animated film in the franchise. It will be released to Japanese theaters in 2017.


On August 18, 2016, Toho announced that an animated Godzilla film is currently in the works for a 2017 theatrical premiere, with Gen Urobuchi as the writer, and Kobun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Seshita as the directors.[1]

On January 19, 2017, six members of the film's main voice cast were revealed, alongside a piece of concept art with what appears to be a duo of unknown mechs and human soldiers walking through a forest.[2] Alongside this announcement was that of the film's scheduled stage event at AnimeJapan 2017 on March 26, 2017.

On February 24, 2017, more concept art for the film was revealed via the film's twitter, showing a vehicle that looks oddly like the Super X from the Heisei era of Godzilla movies.[3]

March 6 yielded more fruit when another concept image was posted on the Godzilla anime's official Twitter once more. This time, the piece depicts two people in heavy duty suits walking through a foggy forest full of spiny trees.[4]

On March 13, it was announced that the film will release on Netflix later in the year, following a theatrical release in Japan.[5]
