A princess from a small Himalayan country becomes possessed by the spirit of a Venusian (a Martian in the American version) and escapes a plane just as it explodes. As this happens a meteorite falls from the sky containing Ghidorah, the monster responsible for her planet's destruction. At the same time, Godzilla and Rodan emerge from hibernation and not only attack Japan, but each other as well. Mothra, along with its twin priestesses, attempt to convince Godzilla and Rodan to stop their fighting each other and to team up to fight the new monster. At the same time, the princess is being hunted by a group of assassins who want to kill her so that her enemies can take over her homeland.Written by

The German dub of the movie pronounces Ghidorah's name as "Jidora", even though other German dubs pronounced it as "Gidora" or "Gidra". See more »

[Godzilla, Rodan, and Mothra are conversing]
Good... good heavens, it looks like they're having a conversation. Oh... Why, Shindo, what do you think they're saying to each other?
Huh, how would I know? You expect me to understand monster talk?

Despite the fact that the Monsters Godzilla, Rodan and Mothra look and act a little goofy in this one, it doesn't change the fact that this film is loads of fun to watch.
When a new monster named Ghidrah (who doesn't love seeing this three-headed beastie?) threatens to destroy the world, our only hope is Mothra. However Mothra is still much too young to possibly have any chance in a battle with Ghidrah and so seeks the unlikely aid of both Godzilla and Rodan, who prove most stubborn yet in the end neither it seems can resist a good fight.
The film has some great lines (here's one example: "these Monsters are as bad as human beings!") and some fun subplots (a police Inspector trying to protect a Princess who claims she's really a Martian from assassination attempts, the involvement of Mothra twin fairy protectors). All around great Kaiju fun!
