STORY

20XX. Paris, New York, Sydney, Shanghai... More than 10 monsters appear in the world at once. The United Nations wages final wars against the monsters combining the power of all the Earth Defense Force to save mankind. However, people are panicked by the enormous power of the monsters and the forces take the defensive.

While the intense fighting continues all over the world, suddenly, an enormous flying object appears and extinguishes the monsters with a beam in a matter of seconds. And then, aliens who call themselves "Xiliens" propose a peace treaty with the Earth...

Meanwhile Godzilla is sleeping calmly in Antarctic ice at that time...

MESSAGE FROM THE PRODUCER (SHOGO TOMIYAMA)

Godzilla, which was created by Messrs Ishiro Honda (director), Eiji Tsuburaya (special effects) and Tomoyuki Tanaka (producer) in 1954, was received enthusiastically throughout the world as a "Made in Japan" property that represents postwar Japan. This year that marks the 50th anniversary, Toho produces "Godzilla Final Wars" as the creme de la creme of the series. Godzilla was created by mankind, but it became a God of destruction which cannot be defeated by man. We will put all the beauties and terrors of Godzilla in this film. The key words for this final film are "all-star monsters","worldwide" and "director Ryuhei Kitamura". Toho starts the production with the biggest budget and production schedule ever and unrivaled passion. The film will boast all-star cast and fast paced edgy action sequences by Mr. Kitamura. We hope the children who love Godzilla, the people who used to love Godzilla and the youngsters who have never seen Godzilla films at the cinema before all enjoy "Godzilla Final Wars". For Godzilla is the brightest dream and at the same time is the most horrific nightmare of the Japanese cinema.
