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.
