    In this trailer, Godzilla's beam looks very Shin-like, but with the EM burst added, while his appearance is closer to the 2014 Legendary version. I'm not sure about this animation style, but the movie looks interesting at least. It should be getting to Netflix early in 2018.

    So, is Godzilla: Monster Planet part of...
    1) ...Legendary’s MonsterVerse?
    2) …Toho’s Shin series?
    3) …none of the above? A different continuity?

    Monster Planet’s Godzilla certainly looks like Legendary’s but MP is made by Toho.

    Option 3 seeing as this Godzilla is supposed to be some kind of plant monster.

    Oh dear. I think I know where this is going, the writer already used that plant monster-forest plotline a few years ago. Guess there'll be monstrous post-human remnants of humanity down the line.

    Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters opened this weekend in Japan and appears to be doing well at the box office (although earning nowhere near what Shin Godzilla did). A poster for the sequel has already been released; Mechagodzilla will make his debut in that one. Lastly, it was revealed that this animated version of Godzilla is 300 meters tall. By comparison, Legendary's Godzilla was only 108 meters, with Shin at 118.5 meters.

    Now we need a 400 meters tall Godzilla for the next iteration!

    That is an insane height. Is this the tallest Godzilla ever?

    By a huge margin. The previous record-holder was apparently the Hanna-Barbera cartoon Godzilla at 122 meters (400 feet), followed by Shin and Legendary.

    He looks a lot closer to the 2014 Legendary version. I had a chance to compare the toys of each and Shin Godzilla's arms are place closer to the center of his chest liked some kind of T-Rex while 2017 and 2014 have larger arms coming from their shoulders. What I find surprising is that they would go for something so close to the Legendary design especially with the criticism of some Japanese fans calling him "Fatzilla".

    For another comparison, check out the chart here.

    From what I understand, the Monster Planet Godzilla starts off at around 50 meters, and keeps growing for the thousands of years covered in the movie, ending up at 300 meters. Perhaps he'll be even larger in the sequels.

    Good grief. The new Godzilla's individual dorsal scales are bigger than most entire Godzillas. That's taking overkill to a whole new level. Feels like overcompensating.

    Netflix has released a trailer for Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, and announced that the movie will debut January 17. Apparently, it will be available in both subtitled and dubbed versions.

    Just watched it. Certainly not your usual Godzilla flick, but very good. The rumor about Godzilla being a plant life form were, I guess, a misunderstanding based on mistaken translation. It's the plants of the future Earth that adopted attributes of Godzilla. Also, there's a reason to this Godzilla's massive size. Also note that there's an after-credits sequence.

    Looking forward to the sequel.

    Even the "Omni Viewer" (sounds likes a member of "The Watcher's" species in the Marvel universe), a YouTube critic of all things Godzilla, liked it and earlier he had fretted over every stage and aspect about its production.

    I'm afraid I didn't much care for Planet of the Monsters. Here's my blog review:

    Did you watch it on Netflix? If so, what title was it under? I'm having trouble locating it...

    Well, German Netflix, and it was under "Godzilla: Planet der Monster", which I had to use the search engine to find, even though I put it on my list. Try putting "Godzilla" in the Netflix search engine, from there it should be easy enough to find.
