Things have been pretty quiet on the giant creature feature front outside of ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ but now a new detail has emerged for Netflix’s ‘Godzilla: Planet Of The Monsters’! The animated movie is already known to be bringing back a slew of creatures from the past and now we can add one more to the list! It looks as if we’re being teased that Dagahra, who was introduced in the 1997 ‘Rebirth of Mothra 2,’ will be throwing down against the King of the Kaiju.
The details were released in a tweet which, thanks to Google Translate, shows that Dagahra made an appearance in Sydney Australia. Not only that, but the image we were given shows a strange substance coming off of Dagahra’s body.

As you can see above, it is a winged reptile and bears a strong resemblance to the original monster.
However, it should be pointed out that just because Dagahra is in the movie doesn’t mean he’ll be playing a major role. In the animated film we’ll be jumping 20,000 years into the future of Godzilla’s reign and it seems unlikely that Dagahra would still be around. Of course, anything is possible.
Do you think that we’ll see Dagahra in ‘Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters’ outside of a history lesson? What do you think we can expect from the movie when it is released? Share your thoughts below!

“The last summer of the 20th Century.
That day, the human beings learn that they are not the only ruler of the planet Earth.The appearance of the giant living creatures “Kaiju’s” and the ultimate existence that destroys all monsters: Godzilla. Through the battle against kaiju’s that lasted for half a century, human beings have experienced continuous defeat and finally plans to escape from the Earth. And in 2048, only those who were selected by the A.I. managed under the central government boarded the inter-sidereal emigrant spaceship “Aratrum” to head for “Tau Cetus e”, the planet beyond the distance of 11.9 light-years. However, the environmental condition differences between that of the Earth and Tau e, which they finally arrived after 20 years were far beyond the predicted numbers and was not an environment considered to be habitable by human beings.
The young man on the emigrant ship: Haruo, who saw his parents killed by Godzilla in front of his eyes when he was 4 years old, had only one thing in his mind for 20 years: to return to the Earth and defeat Godzilla. Shut out from the possibility of emigration, as the living environment in the ship deteriorates, the group of “Earth Returnists” led by Haruo became the majority and determines to head back to Earth through a dangerous long-distance hyperspace navigation. However, the Earth they have returned has already passed the time of 20,000 years and has become an unknown world with the ecosystem reigned by Godzilla.
At the end, will human beings win back the Earth? And what will Haruo see beyond his fate?”
