During an interview with The Wrap, Yamazaki delightfully shared how his adoration for his cats subconsciously influenced the visual effects team’s depiction of the iconic monster.

“Right before we went into production, (my wife and I) actually got a couple of cats,” he said. “And I love my cats so much, so perhaps there was a subconscious tendency for me to sign off on (visual effects) shots that looked like them or just looked more cat-like.”

The director’s wife also noticed the striking resemblance between their feline friends and Godzilla’s on-screen presence.

“When my wife sees the film, she doesn’t see Godzilla in certain scenes. She looks at him and she says, ‘Oh, that’s our cat!’ That’s our cat!’ She can tell from the movement of Godzilla,” Yamazaki revealed.
