The news of a Pacific Rim sequel came with good and bad details. That it’s happening at all is the biggest bit of good news. Guillermo del Toro‘s film wasn’t a massive hit in the United States but did well enough internationally to warrant a sequel. The downside is that fans will have to wait about three years to see the film. Pacific Rim 2 is scheduled for release April 7, 2017.
In the meantime we’ll get two other del Toro movies as well as a nice, sizable appetizer in the Pacific Rim world. A Pacific Rim animated series is in the works. In a new interview, the producer/writer/director explained what the animated series might entail. He exampled how the story would be told and where it might air.
