Toho Animation has unveiled the new trailer for Godzilla: Monster Planet ahead of the anime’s debut on Netflix later this year.
Although we’ve seen a teaser trailer before, the new trailer for the first ever Godzilla animated movie gives us a better look at the action and the characters involved. Unfortunately, the trailer doesn’t have English subtitles. Toho also released a brand new poster with the tagline translating as “Who will be ruined, Human or Godzilla?”
Godzilla: Monster Planet is from Polygon Pictures and directed by Kobun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Shshita, with a script from Gen Urobuchi and stars Mamoru Miyano, Takahiro Sakurai, Kana Hanazawa, Tomokazu Sugita, Yuki Kaji, Junichi Suwabe, Daisuke Ono, Kenta Miyake, kenyu Horiuchi, Kazuya Nakai, and Kazuhiro Yamaji.

However, 20,000 years have already passed when they finally arrive the earth, and it becomes a totally unknown world dominated by an ecosystem topped by Godzilla. Can the human race take the earth back, and the fate of Haruo will be…?
