The evil miniature fairy princess Belvera (Aki Hano) wants to once again bring chaos to the earth, this time with the help of Dagarah, the resurrected giant dragon of the sunk kingdom of Ni Lai Kanai which has the power of producing lethal starfish.

Of course, Belvera's benign miniature sisters Moll (Megumi Kobayashi) and Lora (Sayaka Yamaguchi) immediately call upon Mothra to save the planet, but even if it sems Mothra is winning at first, it's soon covered in starfish and drained of all life energy.

Now there is only one thing that stands between Belvera and the total obliteration of earth: Ghogo, a fluffy little thing that has healing urine (no kidding) and that has been adopted by a little girl, who is now, along with her two little friends, urged by Moll & Lora to go to the main pyramid of Ni Lai Kanai - which for that occasion rises from the seas - to save Mothra, who is sitting atop the pyramid rather helplessly (apart from being still be able to shoot laserbeams).

Now the three kids, plus two bumbling fishermen, who provide the comic relief, have to rush through the pyramid, which has already started to crumble, and have to survive all sorts of dangers, to get to Mothra. Of course they make it just in time and have Ghogo merge with Mothra, upon which Mothra is able to shake all starfish and mutate to an amphibian being, heading towards Dagarah missile-like. Then suddenly, Mothra disassembles into a gazillion mini-Mothras that enter Dararah's bloodstream and destroy the monster from the inside. Once this is achieved, Mothra is reassembled and (for one reason or another) has Dagarah crash into Ni Lai Kanai's pyramid to obliterate it completely.

The kids have managed to leave the palace just in time though, thanks to the palace's guardian/queen, who has - just like Moses - parted the sea for them ...


Like Rebirth of Mothra before it, this is an uneasy mix of childish fantasy and traditional monstermovie, with tiny fairies, laser weapons, an ecological message, and the like, and the added bonus of a (pretty impressive) pyramide set and a (totally unimpressive) fluffy animal. And like Rebirth of Mothra before it, this film is less than great, actually it's pretty disappointing, an ill-achieved genre mix containing way too much kitsch and some very annoying kids. Rather a pity, actually.
