Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah Confirmed for Godzilla Sequel

Mothra

Today at the San Diego Comic-Con, Legendary Pictures officially confirmed that the sequel to this summer’s Godzilla reboot will feature the return of three kaiju from the classic Toho monster movies. They are the flying creatures Mothra and Rodan, along with the three-headed beast King Ghidorah. The flying monster in the recent Godzilla movie was loosely inspired by Rodan and Mothra, but was different enough to be its own distinct creature.

Godzilla 2 doesn’t have a release date yet, but since director Gareth Edwards will first helm the Star Wars spin-off due on December 16, 2016, don’t expect to see the radioactive lizard return to cinemas until at least 2017 or 2018.
