Guillermo Del Toro’s Kaiju/Mecha Slugfest, Pacific Rim, didn’t exactly bring in Avengers-levels of money at the box office, but it made enough profit and garnered enough positive feedback to warrant a sequel. However, it seems like another go around at the big screens is not the only thing we can look forward to, as Del Toro recently taped a message for fans announcing not just the sequel, but also a new Pacific Rim animated series. You can watch the taped message below:
“We’re going to develop a new animated series for Pacific Rim, continue the comic-book series that we started with Year Zero, and most importantly, create a sequel for the film. I’m working on this with Zak Penn and Travis Beacham, and we are very happy to be bringing you more Kaijus, more Jaegers, kicking each other’s butt,” says Del Toro.
