One of the Kaiju I look forward to seeing in Godzilla: King of the Monsters is Mothra. The reason I look forward is because if Godzilla is King of the Monsters then Mothra is the Queen of the Monsters. I noticed that she has undergone a major makeover for the new movie. Her wings are larger and have a more prominent eye pattern that resemble Godzilla’s eyes, which forms a certain connection between Godzilla and Mothra. If Godzilla’s dorsal spines represents his crown then the eye pattern on Mothra’s wings represent her crown. Mothra’s body is smaller and resembles a mixture between a real-life moth and a wasp. Her legs are longer and armed with claws like a praying mantis. Overall, Mothra is still as beautiful and deadly as ever. I can see why ancient man worshipped her as a goddess made flesh. I hope we get to see references to the Mothra fairies in the new film. Since the guy who wrote the music for Black Sails will be revamping the classic Godzilla theme, I hope he also gives us a revamped version of the classic Mothra song.
