Godzilla Movie Directors Agree That Godzilla Is Basically A Giant Cat
Since his movie debut in 1954, Godzilla has appeared and been compared to various other species, the most common being dinosaurs or lizards.
However, thanks to the directors of “Godzilla Minus One” and the upcoming “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire,” the King of Monsters is now being compared to a cat.
Takashi Yamazaki, director of “Godzilla Minus One,” and Adam Wingard, director of “Godzilla x Kong,” shared how their pet cats have influenced their films.
At a “Godzilla x Kong” screening, Wingard said, “One of my biggest influences is my cat, Mischief. She [inspired], on ‘Godzilla vs. Kong,’ a lot of the mannerisms of Godzilla.”
He added, “I had a great conversation with Yamazaki, who did ‘Godzilla Minus One.’ And I was thrilled to find out that he, too, finds a lot of his influences from his cat as well.”
Wingard shared, “There's literally a shot in the film where Godzilla is curled up in the Roman Colosseum [...] It was inspired by my cat and her cat nest.”
