The beast has gone through a number of reinventions over the years, but the most interesting of these facelifts have taken place in more recent years. Filmmakers have gone out of their way to deliver movies that aren’t your standard action-packed Godzilla endeavors.

After some of the more progressive, ambitious takes on the character, such as Shin Godzilla or Gareth Edwards’ reimagining of the franchise, the character is allowed to be more of a cipher that can hint at heavier issues. Yes, Netflix's Godzilla anime trilogy is about giant monsters that engage in all-out combat with the fate of a planet at stake,

Godzilla animated movie in the works, first concept art emerges

Japan's most famous kaiju is to get an animated feature film, as Toho announces the "big-scale" Godzilla...

Godzilla may have passed his 60th birthday, but the city-levelling creature still holds as much fascination as he ever did. Gareth Edwards' Us Godzilla film marked the kaiju's anniversary back in 2014, while this year's Shin Godzilla was a huge hit in Japan in June. The Japanese studio that created Godzilla (or Gojira, as he's known in the far east) isn't stopping with that hit, either.

According to Variety, Toho is in the process of making an animated movie, simply called Godzilla, which it describes as a "big-scale" feature film - a contrast from the fondly-remembered but goofy TV series co-created by Hanna-Barbera in the 1970s. Animation will be handled by Tokyo's Polygon Pictures, the studio behind such things as Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence and Transformers Prime. As such,
