The poster for third and final installment of the Godzilla animated trilogy, Godzilla: Planet Eater, is revealed. Out of all the other posters in this series this one has to be my favorite. It's very vibrant and there is so much going on. Let's take a look.
The first thing we see is Godzilla and King Ghidorah having their ultimate battle. Even though we can see one of KG's heads the other two are there as well, but they blend in with Godzilla's body making it hard to see. The second head can be found near Godzilla's upper chest and the third head can be found near the groin area. So far, I am liking the design for this King Ghidorah, but I think the change is a little too much. I am not entirely on board with KG's face looking like the pincers of a bug like a beatle.
Another thing that I notice is that there does not seem to be any wings present. It doesn't bother me...yet. I'm going to assume that maybe there was no room to add his wings in the poster, but I can't get this feeling that he is not going to have wings at all. Maybe his wings fold in or wrapped around his body? Who knows until we see the next trailer for this movie. We do, however, have an idea on how KG get's to Earth.
In the background, you can see one of KG's tails coming out of what looks like a black hole. Perhaps instead of KG flying from planet to planet, the main characters use a worm hole to reach Metphies's home world and bring KG to Earth. If that is the case, then wouldn't it make better sense to have to used that same worm hole to send Godzilla to another planet?
Lastly, front and center we have Metphies holding the body of Commander Sagaki in his arms while the planet seems to be crumbling apart from the monsters fighting. Did Sagaki die or did he just pass out? Was he the one that brought KG to Earth?
Just a while after the poster was revealed, the synopsis for the movie was revealed from the movie's website. The summary of the movie goes as followed:
The human race is on the brink of oblivion. The "wings of its demise" descended before its eyes.
This is the concluding chapter of the animated feature film series, GODZILLA.
The final chapter, GODZILLA: The Planet Eater, finds MechaGodzilla City, the peak of scientific evolution and mankind's best hope, 20,000 years into the future, burned to cinders. Under the supremacy of Godzilla - Earth, Earth is ruled over by Godzilla, however he has one more challenge, the winged creature, KING GHIDORAH.
With the concluding chapter of the saga, the King of the Void (GHIDORAH) squares off with the King of Earth (GODZILLA). When the dust settles, will there be anything left for the human race?
So the summary confirms twice that KG will have wings, but again we don't see them in the poster. From how it looks, KG looks like just three separate snakes instead of a three headed dragon. You can't really tell where the body begins and ends if this incarnation even has a body at all. As much as I like the design, I would like it more if it was its own monster instead of being KG.
