Description by OLDIES.com:
A team of explorers searching for exotic wildlife unwittingly release a horrific force on Japan. Refusing to heed the natives' warnings, they return from a South Seas island with a strange triphibian creature. Plans to use Gappa as a tourist attraction are derailed when the monster's vengeful parents descend on Tokyo. Laying waste to entire cities in the pursuit of their offspring, the giant monsters are unaffected by modern weaponry. As the island prepares itself for total annihilation, scientists rally with a daring plan to reunite the creatures and preserve humanity. Monster from a Prehistoric Planet, also known as Gappa the Triphibian Monster, is bolstered by the special effects work of Akira Watanabe, whose groundbreaking work on the Godzilla series inspired many imitators.
A publisher decides to build a recreational center and wants everything to be authentic. He sends a group to a tropical island to bring back plants, but instead they bring back a giant bird-reptile. Unfortunately, its parents want it back and pave a path of destruction across Japan trying to reclaim it.
Gappa, a baby prehistoric creature is brought to Tokyo, and its fire breathing parents leave no building uncrushed and no missile left unfired in their attempt to rescue their little bundle of joy.
