Distributor: Production:


On Infant Island, Belvera discovers a hidden box containing the Triangle of Elias. Her sisters, Moll and Lora, confront her and manage to separate the three triangles. Each Elias becomes in possession of one triangle. Each triangle reflects a separate trait: wisdom, courage and heart. When united with the correct Elias, the triangle unlocks new powers. Before escaping, Belvera warns of the King of the Terror. The sisters understand this warning to mean the return of King Ghidorah, who emerges shortly afterwards from a meteor shower. The three-headed monster begins devastating Japan, using its gravity beams to rip skyscrapers apart. The creature is also teleporting the children out of the city in its wake. The ancient beast is keeping the kids in a cache located in the forest as it plans to absorb and feed off them. Realizing the gravity of the situation, Moll and Lora call on Rainbow Mothra who arrives to battle the golden dragon. Overpowered, the Elias and Mothra are desperate for a way to combat King Ghidorah. Moll devises one plan: send Mothra back in time to when the three-headed monster was weaker...
