Mothra's 50 Anniversary

By: Donny Winter
Godzilla’s 50th Anniversary back in 2004 was celebrated with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, numerous commercials advertising the movie Godzilla: Final Wars, and a considerable amount of excitement not to mention discussion across the entire giant monster fandom.
This year marks Mothra’s 50th Anniversary, an insect deity who found her place in fame back in 1961. After Toho neglected to do anything for Rodan’s 50th Anniversary back in 2006, it is safe to say that they do not have anything planned for their Queen of the Monster‘s semi-centennial.
Not all is hopeless though. The membership of Kaiju Galaxy is planning on celebrating Mothra’s big 5-0 with a year of discussion, creation and enjoyment in Mothra’s honor. If the King of the Monsters gets a 50th, well it is sensible for the Queen to get her respective 50th celebration as well.
