Background - Images - Concept Evolution


Submitted to Toho on January 29th, 1994 and written by the author responsible for Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989), Shinichiro Kobayashi's Godzilla vs. NeoGodzilla would be the first script to introduce the idea of a "crystal life" space organism versus "organic life". This theme, coupled with the idea of a final battle featuring a monster extremely close to Godzilla in design, would become highly influencial in all future drafts. While details regarding this lost project are scarce, keywords such as "crystals" and "Godzilla cells" are prevalent throughout the story.


Background and Trivia

  • The mention of this draft, as well as some pictures of the script, can be found in the pages of Koichi Kawakita's book, Heisei Godzilla Chronicle (ISBN: 4873763193). The movie is said to have directly influenced SpaceGodzilla's "living mineral" theme.
