You may not be aware of it, but 2004 will mark the 50th Anniversary of Godzilla. Gojira premiered in November, 1954. As of this writing, Toho has not as yet announced the 50th Anniversary film or what events they may be planning to mark the occasion. Will they do a special roadshow of the best of the G-films of the past 50 years? Will they produce a television special retrospective? Will there be a special traveling exhibition of props? These and other things Toho is now considering. However, North American fans are planning G-TOUR to commemorate the anniversary. Fans will be traveling to Japan in July, 2004 to visit many locations depicted in Godzilla movies. At this time, G-TOUR is being planned with a professional tour company with J. D. Lees, publisher of G-FAN magazine. I am assisting Lees on a few tour-related events, including a reunion/reception of stars and studio technicians who worked on your favorite Godzilla and Japanese science-fiction and fantasy films and a possible ceremony at Toho Studios in Tokyo. Also, we are proposing media coverage of the tour to help promote the anniversary including incorporating it in a television special to compare the actual locations throughout Japan with scenes from the movies. More information will be forthcoming when it becomes available. Currently, there is a Yahoo! Group set up for those interested in G-TOUR. It is GS North America (for Godzilla Society of North America). If you are interested in Godzilla's 50th Anniversary or G-TOUR, you are invited to join us there.
