Godzilla: King of the Monsters - The Official Movie Novelization is a novel based on the 2019 Legendary Pictures film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The book was written by Greg Keyes and was published by Titan Books. The novelization was released on May 28, 2019.[2]


Godzilla: King of the Monsters follows the heroic efforts of the cryptozoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and its ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species--thought to be mere myths--rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance.





Differences from the film

Very few changes were made in the novel, barring a select few scenes and greater use of some of the lesser-used Titans. Namely:

  • Mokele-Mbembe was featured much more heavily, having several chapters set at his containment site in Sudan.
  • A new Titan, Margygr, was seen at Castle Bravo.
  • The Titans Kraken and Behemoth were shown escaping their containment centers, and the escapes of Scylla and Methuselah were shown more in-depth; some Monarch agents rebel and release captive Titans after watching Emma Russell's message.
  • Madison Russell is shown to have a more spiritual connection with Mothra.
  • Additional scenes showing Alan Jonah as a more malevolent character with him threatening Madison and ordering one of his men to cut her throat if Emma goes near the ORCA without his permission.
  • Andrew Russell's death and the impact it had on the Russell family are elaborated on.
  • Jonah has a father-son relationship with Asher, and details of Jonah's past are revealed, including how he and Asher met and Jonah's daughter Lindy.
  • On Skull Island, Kong hears Ghidorah's call but ignores it until it causes the Skullcrawlers to stir.
  • Characters mention the events of Godzilla: Awakening and Godzilla: Aftershock.
  • When she steals the ORCA, Madison subdues one of Jonah's men with a stun gun.
  • It's revealed that Vivienne Graham has nieces and nephews, and Ishiro Serizawa has a son named Ren.
