The official website for Godzilla: The Planet Eater (Godzilla: Hoshi wo Kū Mono), the third and final film in the Godzilla anime film trilogy, began streaming the first trailer on Wednesday. The trailer previews XAI's theme song "live and die."

The website describes the film's story in English:

20,000 years into the future, the Earth is ruled by Godzilla. Pitted against him are the straggling remnants of the human race. The final chapter, GODZILLA:The Planet Eater, finds the Mechagodzilla city, the peak of scientific evolution and mankind's best hope, burned to cinders. Godzilla Earth reigns supreme but he has one more challenge: the winged creature, KING GHIDORAH.

Saori Hayami and Kenichi Suzumura will join the third film's cast as Haruka and Akira Sakaki, respectively, the parents of the protagonist Haruo.
