What would “Godzilla Minus One, Half Two” be about? Provided that “Godzilla Minus One” was extra character-driven than most of the previous “Godzilla” motion pictures, Yamazaki mentioned he would wish to proceed on that tack. He mentioned in his interview, quoted by the Gorumaru Twitter account, that:
“My sincere emotions, I want to see a continuation of these individuals’s story. If I might make it, I want to make a film that includes what occurs to them after that.”
“Godzilla Minus One” focuses on a kamikaze pilot (Ryunosuke Kamiki) as his life is upended by his perceived self-cowardice (he didn’t sacrifice himself for the battle effort) and the way Godzilla stands as an emblem of his failure. It appears Yamazaki would wish to proceed his story, and never essentially Godzilla’s. Yamazaki additionally implied all through the movie’s launch schedule that he constructed “Minus One” to depart the door open for sequels. For the Japanese newspaper Aera, Yamazaki mentioned:
“I feel it is extra cinematic if it would not finish neatly and correctly. It isn’t simply so a sequel might be made, it is also so the characters are stored alive within the hearts of the viewers.”
Yamazaki was additionally quoted on the “Godzilla Minus One” premiere (as reported by Sankei Sports activities) as having mentioned “I ponder in the event you’ll let me shoot yet another image?” implying that he wished to make one other Godzilla. That, nonetheless, looks as if an idle request and never an announcement of intent.
Within the December 2023 concern of Mono Journal, Yamazaki theorized what sorts of tales he is likely to be prepared to discover with “Minus One, Half Two.”
