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.

Did You Know?
When Godzilla is wading in the water heading for Iwo Island, he is only shot from behind. This is due to the fact that Haruo Nakajima
was actually wearing the suit from King Kong vs. Godzilla
(1962) instead of the Mosi Goji suit. It had already been planned to use the suit from this film for the next film in the series, Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster
(1964) and in order to save wear and tear it was decided to use the older suit. See more
After the battle between Mothra imago (adult) form and Godzilla, the twin fairies start singing their song, with the main cast watching by. Then we cut to a military battle against Godzilla which takes place at night. Afterwards, we cut back to the fairies, who are still singing, and the main characters, who are wearing the same clothes as the day before. This seems to suggest that the fairies have been singing throughout the night and into the day, and that the human cast have not moved at all through out the night, as they are in the same position as before the military battle.

"I'm not as afraid of Godzilla as I am of the editor... he's meaner."
Mothra is sometimes referred to as "the Thing" in the AIP dub. See more
