Pacific Rim 2 is coming!

What a beautiful, glorious day this is. Pacific Rim, loved by millions but technically a bomb at the box office, was thought to be consigned to history as a one-movie franchise. But today, we got some great news, and we got it straight from the mouth of Guillermo Del Toro himself. Not only is Pacific Rim getting a sequel on April 7th, 2017, but tons more of the Pacific Rim world is coming our way sooner than that. Hit the jump for all the details.

Del Toro put out a very brief video message this week, with three very specific pieces of information.

  • There will be more Pacific Rim comics, soon.
  • There will be a Pacific Rim animated series coming soon.
  • Pacific Rim 2 will launch on April 7th, 2017.
I'm giddy from all the excitement running through me right now. An animated series? Hopefully they can find a team talented enough to bring that to its full potential. And then, in a looong three years, we finally get to see giant robots and monsters beating the crap out of each other on the big screen. It'll be the best Christmas in April in a long time. Here's Guillermo with the full message:
