The kaiju (monster in Japanese) film genre had been extremely kind to Toho studios with “Rodan”, “Vanan the Unbelievable” and two “Gozilla” films earing generous returns in profit. Times were changing though and the formulaic monster on the loose plot was growing tired so they decided to mix it up a bit by making their new monster creation, Mothra, a divine female that only destroys when it’s two twin miniature fairies are in danger. It sounds strange only because it is.
