The King of the Monsters is stomping from the world of beasts to the realm of the printed word.

Earlier today, the official Godzilla anime film trilogy’s website updated with details on the first film’s theme song, as well as a prequel novel.

The song, White Out., will be produced by Boom Boom Satellites bassist Masayuki Nakano. The piece will be performed by XAI as her major debut work.

The prequel novel will feature tales from various soldiers in the trenches, as well as their officers, citizens, scientists, and children. Urobuchi is supervising the work, which will ask questions like “Why did mankind have to discard their home, the Earth?” and “What happened between mankind and the monsters before Godzilla arrived?”

Godzilla: Monster Planet, will hit Japanese theaters on November 17. The feature will stream later this year on Netflix as a Netflix Original project.

The Godzilla films was also presented as a feature in this year’s Annecy International Film Festival’s “Work in Progress” program.

The film will be directed by Kobun Shizuno (Knights of Sidonia) and Hiroyuki Seshita (Blame!) at Polygon Pictures. Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Psycho-Pass) is writing the script.
