Gamera the fire-belching turtle has replaced his human-hating ways with a friendly attitude towards children and once more saves the world in this film from director Noriyaki Yuasa. The villains are invading extraterrestrials whose spaceships can "morph" into giant squids. Gamera proceeds to wreck Tokyo with typical monster destructive behavior, returning to the sea after the spell is broken. Destroy All Planets has also been known under the titles Gamera tai Uchu Kaiju Bairasu and Gamera Vs. Outer-Space Monster Virus.
