Ishirō Honda introduced us to a more magical take on the kaiju genre with Mothra — a giant moth looking to protect its people. Survivors shipwrecked on a remote island discover a native population that worships a mythical deity called Mothra. After the island’s fairies priestesses are kidnapped by an exploitative businessman, Mothra journeys to Tokyo to rescue them at all costs.
