Netflix Preps Pacific Rim Anime


It is not a secret that the live action/CG film that is Pacific Rim is heavily inspired by the Japanese mecha and kaiju concepts. So it is not that surprising that the franchise is going to come full circle soon, as Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and CCO Ted Sarandos unveiled a Pacific Rim anime during their first ever content showcase in Asia. The Pacific Rim anime is part of 17 new, original productions from Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, India, and South Korea.

“Asia is home to the world’s great creative centers producing some of the most compelling films and series of today,” said Sarandos. “The beauty of Netflix is that we can take never-seen before stories from South Korea, Thailand, Japan, India, Taiwan or elsewhere, and easily connect them to people all over Asia and the world. More than half of Asian content hours viewed on Netflix this year are viewed outside the region, so we have confidence that our upcoming slate of Asian productions will find fans in their home countries and abroad.”

The Pacific Rim anime will revisit the epic battle between Kaiju and Jaegers, expanding the story of the first two live action movies with a story revolving around two siblings: an idealistic teenage boy and his naive younger sister, who find themselves unwitting co-pilots of an abandoned Jaeger across a hostile landscape, all in an effort to find their missing parents. For more details, you can visit the series’ official Netflix page.
