Grab your drift-compatible bestie and get ready for 2017! Guillermo Del Toro has announced the continuation of the hit Pacific Rim comic book series: an all-new animated series and the long-awaited sequel to one of the most successful nerd-centric movies of our time. While there isn't much more information than that, we know that the stars of the first film, Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi, are involved in the storyline.
Did we freak out?
In case you missed the first movie, here are a few reasons to get into the franchise ASAP:
1. Giant Robots (A.K.A. Jaegers)
2. Giant Robots VS. Giant Monsters (Kaiju!)
3. Mako Mori
Whether you're a fan of classic kaiju, mecha anime, or great action movies, the Pacific Rim franchise has a little bit of everything.
Pacific Rim 2 is set for a 2017 release.
