Beware the destructive power and fury of Mothra!

One of the most eternally popular and iconic characters from the legendary Japanese film production company Toho, Mothra, a giant moth who also appears in egg and larva form, has been a staple across the kaiju (giant monster) genre since her first appearance in Ishirō Honda's captivating 1961 film.

Before she teamed up with Godzilla, Rodan and other kaiju superstars, Mothra made an unforgettable debut in this vibrant, hugely enjoyable monster movie. Mayhem ensues when her two miniature priestesses (Emi and Yumi Itō, better known by their stage name, The Peanuts), are kidnapped from their tropical island home by greedy capitalists from the land of Rolisica (a thinly veiled parody of the USA).
