PACIFIC RIM 2 Will Be Released in 2017 Del Toro Confirms

The quest to cancel the apocalypse has started again! For the  past few weeks we have been hearing rumors about the sequel to Director Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim. When I heard that this 2013's Kaijus vs Jaegers movie raked in more than $400 million internationally, I was very sure that a sequel is definitely going to come like what happened to most movie with that box office success. And yes, Del Toro himself confirmed and announced via BuzzFeed that Pacific Rim 2 will be coming out on April 7, 2017.

Earlier this month the director confirmed that he was already working on the Pacific Rim 2 script with Zak Penn.

“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.” - Guillermo Del Toro told BuzzFeed
Aside from the new movie installment, the director also added another treat for all the Pacific Rim fans, there would be an animated series which will be set in the same Pacific Rim world and according to Guillermo it will be released before the movie is out. That's a double treat actually. You may watch the video announcement below directly from the director Guillermo Del Toro himself.
