Guillermo del Toro announces Pacific Rim 2 is a go in 2017!

06.26.2014

It's official: there will be a PACIFIC RIM sequel and we have a release date! Director Guillermo Del Toro made a couple of big announcements regarding the now franchise today including that he is developing an animated series set in the PACIFIC RIM world; the show is set to debut before the sequel. PACIFIC RIM 2 has been set for a 2017 release with Zak Penn (X-MEN: THE LAST STAND) working on the script, and original screenwriter Travis Beacham is working on the sequel and overall franchise development.

Toro told Buzzfeed:

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.

The first film made just $101M domestically but $309M overseas, which is confidence enough if you ask the suits behind the decision. PACIFIC RIM was nothing more than fantastic popcorn fun and, like a lot of you, I was genuinely surprised that the movie didn't do very well in North America. What's even sadder is the fact that TRANSFORMERS is looking to take in $100M this weekend alone; chew on that. We don't have any info about returning cast at this point but PACIFIC RIM 2 will be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on April 7, 2017.

Are you ready for another ridiculous monster-robot movie?

Are you funnin' me, son? No I am not. The director was kind enough to share the news in a short video clip:
