Guillermo del Toro Announces Pacific Rim 2 for April 2017

Legendary Pictures and Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro released a video message late last night announcing a confirmed release date for Pacific Rim 2!

An animated series will lead up to the sequel film, which is slated for release April 7, 2017. BuzzFeed spoke to del Toro about the plans in greater detail:

The characters I love will return. Raleigh, Mako, Newt, Gottlieb and who knows, maybe even Hannibal Chau – but we are taking them into a fresh territory that will display amazing sights and battles. The first film set the stage and now we’re ready to have a blast.
