The MonsterVerse incarnation of Mothra (モスラ,   Mosura?) is a daikaiju created by Legendary Pictures that will appear in Legendary's upcoming 2019 film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Name

Appearance

Mothra's silhouette on the cave paintings implies that she has greater resemblance to an actual lepidopteran than her other incarnations. The temple carving implies that her patterns will be different but still has the circles on the larger wings.

Roar

Personality

Mothra, as the cave painting shows, appears to be more friendly towards humanity than her fellow kaiju, as she is being worshiped by a group of humans standing nearby.

Origins

History

80px-Spoiler.png SPOILER WARNING: This section may contain major plot and/or ending details. Proceed at your own discretion.

Godzilla

Mothra appeared as a easter egg in Godzilla, with her name appearing on an old aquarium that the Brody family owned before the meltdown at Janjira. The aquarium is only seen when Ford and Joe enter their former home.

Kong: Skull Island

Mothra appears in the post-credit scene, along with Godzilla, Rodan, and Ghidorah, in the form of cave-paintings. Unlike the paintings of Ghidorah and Rodan, Mothra and Godzilla are colored white but Mothra is surrounded by worshipers.

2009

In 2009, a team led by Monarch scientist Dr. Emma Russell followed a strange bio-acoustic signature to a previously undiscovered megalithic temple in the high-altitude jungles of China's Yunnan province. A giant cocoon was found within the temple, with a rapid heartbeat detected inside.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Mothra is confirmed to appear in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, along with Godzilla, Rodan, and Ghidorah, on March 22, 2019.[1]

Trivia

  • The reveal image for Mothra reads "Terrasearch #63061: Yucca Province". June 30, 1961 (6-30-61) was the date the original Mothra film released. However, Yucca is a typo as it's supposed to be "Yunnan", and there is no such place as the Yucca Province. 

In other languages

Mothra's name remains the same across many languages employing the Latin alphabet.

  • Bulgarian, Serbian and Russian: Мотра
  • Chinese: 魔斯拉 (Mó sī lā)
  • Italian: Watang, Mattra, Pulluk
  • Yiddish: מאָטהראַ
