Guillermo del Toro Officially Announces PACIFIC RIM 2 & An Animated Series

Surprise! Legendary have posted a new video featuring director Guillermo del Toro ("Hellboy") officially announcing Pacific Rim 2, as well as a new animated series based on the franchise.

Near the beginning of this month, Buzzfeed chatted with Guillermo del Toro ("The Strain") and asked him if he had any updates for a potential sequel to Pacific Rim. That is when he revealed that he had been working on the screenplay with Zak Penn, who is best known for writing The Incredible Hulk, X-Men: The Last Stand and the Jennifer Garner tour de force, Elektra. At that time, Guillermo cautioned that Legendary hadn't given the sequel the greenlight, but today they have and below is a video featuring del Toro making the historic announcement.

As for what Pacific Rim 2 will be about, all we know is that Jaeger pilots, Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), are involved in the storyline.

PACIFIC RIM 2 Will Land In Theaters April 7, 2017

PACIFIC RIM SYNOPSIS - When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.


Pacific Rim was directed by Guillermo del Toro, from a script written by Travis Beacham. The cast includes Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke. Now available on DVD & Blu-ray!
