New Pacific Rim Animated Series and Sequel OfficialLegendary in conjunction with Universal has finally officially confirmed a sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, and we have a message regarding what’s planned right here from the man himself. Read on for the goods, a video, and even a release date!

According to del Toro things are ready to get cooking on two fronts. “From now until April 2017, we are going to develop a new animated series for Pacific Rim [to] continue the comic book series that we started with Year Zero and, most importantly, creating a sequel for the film,” says del Toro via the below video, which appeared on Legendary’s YouTube channel.

“I’m working on this with Zak Penn and Travis Beacham, and we’re all very happy to be bringing you more Kaijus, more Jaegers kicking each other’s butt!”

Pacific Rim 2, the next chapter of the epic action-adventure, will be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on April 7, 2017.

Look for more soon!

    I guess I’m down for a follow up PR had alot of faults but it has grown on me after watching again so hope they can clean it up and give us a better package .Going to see Transformers today really low expectations after what i’ve seen just looks retarded and it’s nearly 3 hrs. Why does almost every big Summer blockbuster have to be dumbed down with stupid characters and bad dialog ?

    BRING. IT. OOOONNNNN! I’m going to say it. Pacific Rim is better than Godzilla. Should I say better? I mean more fun, imaginative, better paced, and it had Ron, so automatic win, right? Let me pit it this way, I didn’t throw my hands up and yell “FUCK YOU!” during Pacific Rim.

    Flesh and blood characters we can actually give a crap about, more of an actual story and a climactic battle shot in broad daylight on land where there’s absolutely no confusion about what’s going on, please. Do that and this could be pure gold. My problem with the original Pacific Rim is that on DVD it falls flat..once you lose the larger than life experience of seeing the film on the big screen, you’re left with a flick that has shit characters, a bare bones plot and a poorly shot underwater sequence at the end. Let’s hope Del Toro and his crew learn from their mistakes, becuase the potential is here for something truly amazing.
