Toho Animation and Polygon Pictures (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) are preparing the animated feature. It will be co-directed by Kobun Shizuno (Detective Conan, Knights of Sidonia) and CG director Hiroyuki Seshita (the Final Fantasy movie franchise, Ajin: Demi-Human). Gen Urobuchi (Psycho-Pass, Gargantia) will write from his own concept.

Confirmed voice actors include Yuki Kaji, Takahiro Sakurai, Tomokazu Sugita, Junichi Suwabe, Kana Hanazawa, and Mamoru Miyano.

The last summer of the 20th Century. That day the human beings learn that they are not the only ruler of the planet Earth due to the appearance of the giant living creatures, “kaijus,” and the ultimate existence that destroys all monsters: Godzilla.

Through the battle against kaijus that lasted for half a century, human beings have experienced continuous defeat and finally plan to escape from the Earth. And in 2048, only those who were selected by the A.I. managed under the central government boarded the inter-sidereal emigrant spaceship “Aratrum” to head for “Tau Cetus e,” a planet beyond the distance of 11.9 light-years. However, the environmental condition differences between that of the Earth and Tau e, when they finally arrived after 20 years, were far beyond the predicted numbers, and it was not an environment considered to be habitable by human beings.

One 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, had only one thing in his mind for 20 years: to return to Earth and defeat Godzilla. Shut out from the possibility of emigration as the living environment in the ship deteriorates, the group of “Earth Returnists” led by Haruo became the majority and determine to head back to Earth through a dangerous long-distance hyperspace navigation. However, the Earth they have returned to has already passed the time of 20,000 years and has become an unknown world with an ecosystem reigned over by Godzilla.

At the end,will human beings win back the Earth? And what will Haruo see beyond his fate?
