Part of the Uncanny Valley Season
Directed by the original Godzilla's Ishirô Honda, Mothra is the first cinematic outing of the beloved Queen of the Monsters.
When an expedition to an ancient island (also a nuclear bomb test site) kidnaps a pair of its tiny priestess inhabitants for a circus act, they unwittingly anger the deity Mothra, who answers the telepathic S.O.S song by unleashing her destructive power over Tokyo.
Mothra remains the only Kaiju to seriously challenge Godzilla in terms of popularity. She would continue to appear in all Godzilla Showa and Heisi series (including her own trilogy in the '90s) and recently in Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019).
She also has her own theme song which you will never get out of your head - take that Godzilla!
