REBIRTH OF MOTHRA
Fans were distraught after Toho killed off Godzilla in “Godzilla vs. Destroyah” to make way for America’s big budget 1998 remake. Though Big G was dead (for the time being) Toho promised that they were not done with Kaiju films and thus decided to reboot the “Mothra” franchise. The first of what would become a new trilogy was simply titled “Mothra” (retitled “Rebirth of Mothra” for the United States) but this is not a remake of the 1961 film of the same name. It is instead a completely new story built around the original Mothra mythology with a major difference… to fans dismay this one is strictly geared towards kids.
