Guillermo del Toro is getting his kaiju on once again, and we'll see the results in a few years — Pacific Rim 2 is coming in 2017.
April 7, 2017, to be specific. Del Toro is also working on an animated Pacific Rim series to be released before then.
"The characters I love will return," del Toro said in a statement to BuzzFeed. "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."
