War of the Worlds: Goliath is an animated film sequel to the H.G. Wells novel. The film received a limited theatrical release in the United States on March 7, 2014 and was released on home video on April 1, 2014.

Director and co-producer Joe Pearson describes it as such:

It's an R rated, retro-history, steam punk epic set in [the year] 1914, fourteen years after the first failed Martian invasion. Mankind has rebuilt her cities and military adapting a lot of the abandoned Martian technology. They've created an international defense force, A.R.E.S., based on the lower end of Manhattan and under the command of Theodore [sic] Roosevelt. They've built a formidable force centered around giant, steam powered battle tripods. Think of "Band of Brothers" meets "Star Wars", meets World WO. It will be cool-steam powered battle tripods, doomed Cossack cavalry charges, victorian decco, steam punk Manhattan, 1500 foot long armored battle zeppelins, Teddy Roosevelt, souped up Tri-planes, blood on steaming metal, sex in the cockpit. The usual.

One of the notable actors to provide their voice is that of Adrian Paul, who portrayed John Kincaid in the second season of the "War of the Worlds" TV series.
