GODZILLA AND MOTHRA:
THE BATTLE FOR EARTH
Aka "Godzilla vs. Mothra"
Re-introducing King Ghidorah with the last sequel proved to Toho that audiences wanted to see Godzilla fight monsters they were already familiar with from the old series. Due to this it would only be natural for them to bring back Mothra and thus they began “remaking” older sequels, but “remake” is a poor word choice as the the film is completely different when it comes to plot. The title however makes it confusing as it was released in Japan as “Godzilla vs. Mothra” and to avoid audiences mistaking it for the 1964 sequel “Mothra vs. Godzilla”, it was retitled “Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth” for American video release.
Godzilla will return in "Godzille vs. Mechagodzilla II"
