The filmmaker will helm the project after directing the 'Star Wars' spinoff which will release on December 16, 2016, reported Deadline.
"I will return for Godzilla 2 after shooting my Star Wars pic. We get to make another one. I'm just up here doing a small little sci-fi movie, as soon as that's over will be Godzilla 2," Edwards said via a video massage on the sidelines of Comic-Con.
Legendary Pictures' Thomas Tull, who was also present at the ongoing Comic-con, said 'Godzilla' monster baddies Rodan, Mothra, and Ghidorah will appear in the next instalment.
"Toho has been great to us and now we have more monsters to play with," Tull said.
