Watch Godzilla Fest 2023's 'Godzilla vs. Megalon'

Stream the new Godzilla Festival 2023 shorts on YouTube.

Godzilla Fest 2023 was bigger than ever this year as Toho and director Takuya Uenishi commemorated the 50-year anniversary of 1973's Godzilla vs. Megalon (and its starring kaiju Megalon and Jet Jaguar) with a brand-new, homonymous short screened for attendees – and now available to stream online.

A sequel to 2022's Godzilla vs. Gigan Rex short film, also by Uenishi, Godzilla vs. Megalon (2023) features the return of the massive, sinew-y King of the Monsters design that's since been immortalized in figure form. Uenishi is no stranger to portraying monstrous might, having worked as a Godzilla modeling & compositor on 2016's Shin Godzilla.

The original Godzilla vs. Megalon saw Jet Jaguar team up (following an unintentional initial confrontation) with Godzilla in a battle to defend humankind from subterranean monster Megalon, along with the returning space kaiju, Gigan.

Fans can stream the new Godzilla vs. Megalon (2023) short in full on the Japan-based Official Godzilla YouTube in its original Japanese. English subtitles viewable through YouTube's subtitles function are available for now.
