A greedy developer has placed huge machines to suck dry a part of the ocean near Tokyo so he can put luxury condos there. After a storm, a giant egg washes up on the beach nearby and is immediately put on public display. The developer's plans go awry when he disrupts Godzilla's rest and the monster goes stomping through Tokyo again. It's up to the elderly Mothra, and then to its two offspring, to save Tokyo from destruction. Written by

Because of the commercial success of Mothra vs. Godzilla
(1964), Toho decided to release another Godzilla film in 1964, Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster
(1964). The Mosugoji suit, though, needed to go through some repairs. During the shooting of this film, the mouth had become wobbly and would not work properly. The head had also caught fire, which didn't help the suit much. So the head of the Mosugoji suit was replaced by one of a sturdier design. "Mosugoji II," as some fans refer to the repaired suit, also had more mobility than the original Mosugoji. See more

You should return the egg to its rightful owner.
You keep saying about the 'rightful owner.' Is the rightful owner's name written on that egg?
Reporter Jiro Nakamura
No, but it's pretty clear it's Mothra's egg.

Hmmph. Are you saying you have power of attorney from Mothra? Kumayama, it's no use talking with them. Ask them to leave.
