Godzilla: Monster Planet to Play at Annecy Film Festival

Upcoming anime film Godzilla: Monster Planet will appear at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival, it was reported today.

The festival takes place from June 12 to 17.

Godzilla: Monster Planet, which debuts in Japanese theaters this November, is co-directed by Kobun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Seshita, who will appear at a panel at the festival June 14 that showcases the making of the film.

Shizuno commented, “I’m curious what people worldwide think about the fact that Godzilla is becoming an anime. I can’t wait to see how the animation fans at Annecy will react to our Godzilla.”

Seshita added, “The world’s biggest monster will appear at the world’s biggest animation festival. I’m glad I’ll be there to witness such a historical event.”

Here’s looking forward to seeing some first impressions of Godzilla: Monster Planet when it appears at Annecy next week.
