A young and devoted fan of the Milwaukee Brewers with autism, Nigel Ayala, got an early look at next year's Godzilla: King of Monsters after he gifted Godzilla figures to each of the team's players over the summer, thus endowing them with "Godzilla Power."
This seemed to work, as the Brewers are currently in the running to play against the Red Sox in the 2018 World Series, their first shot at it in seven years.
When Legendary Entertainment heard about his love of Godzilla and his kaiju pals, Nigel, 10, was flown out to Los Angeles, where he got a tour of the Legendary HQ in Burbank and met King of the Monsters director Michael Dougherty (Krampus), who showed him some exclusive, never-before-seen footage from the highly anticipated monster mash that will include Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah.
"Seeing the love that someone as young as Nigel has for the character kinds of helps us all get back to that childhood place where our love of the character was born," said Barnaby Legg, Legendary's head of creative strategy. "He stumped with me a few questions ... that kid knows his Godzilla."
Godzilla: King of the Monsters released its first trailer during San Diego Comic-Con in July, naturally throwing the Internet into a wild and excited frenzy. The film stomps into theaters May 31, 2019, and features an A-list ensemble cast: Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Ken Watanabe, Bradley Whitford, Zhang Ziyi, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, and Thomas Middleditch.
