The trailer for the first Toho animated Godzilla film, Godzilla: Monster Planet, has been released online ahead of its November release.
Despite the trailer lacking English subtitles the film still looks incredibly impressive.
The official synopsis for the film reads as following;
'The last summer of the 20th Century. That day, the human beings learn that they are not the only rulers of the planet Earth. The appearance of the giant living creatures 'Kaiju's' and the ultimate existence that destroys all monsters: Godzilla. Through the battle against kaiju's that lasted for half a century, human beings had experienced continuous defeat, and finally plans to escape from Earth.
'In 2048, only those who were selected by the A.I. managed under the central government boarded the international emigrant spaceship 'Aratrum' to head for 'Tau Cetuse', a planet beyond the distance of 11.9 light-years away. However, the environmental condition differences between that of Earth and Tau, which they finally arrived at after 20 years, were far beyond the predicted numbers, and was not an environment considered to be habitable by human beings.
'A young man on the emigrant ship, Haruo, who saw his parents killed by Godzilla in front of his eyes when he was 4 years old, has had only one thing on his mind for 20 years: to return to Earth and defeat Godzilla.
'Shut out from the possibility of emigration, as the living environment on the ship deteriorates, the group of 'Earth Returnists' led by Haruo become the majority, and determine to head back to Earth through a dangerous long-distance hyperspace navigation. However, the Earth that they have returned to has already passed 20,000 years, and has become an unknown world with the ecosystem reigned by Godzilla.
'At the end, will human beings win back the Earth? And what will Haruo see beyond his fate?'
