Guillermo Del Toro Talks About Pacific Rim Animated Series
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.10.2014



In an interview with Collider, Guillermo del Toro spoke about the Pacific Rim animated series, which will lead into Pacific Rim 2. The film begins pre-production in August for an April 7, 2017 release date. Here are highlights:

On the development of the animated series: "We are right now in the middle of talking and negotiating with a few Japanese companies for the animation. We are talking to a couple of showrunners that have a strong animation background, [we're] casting the writers room. What's great is it's a great set-up and a link between the first movie and the second movie. It really enhances the mythology of the characters; we have cameos of characters from the first movie, but mostly it's a new set of characters. New jaegers, except for one or two, [and] new kaijus. It's really fun."

On the series keeping the spirit of the film: "We're going for a long arc, so the idea is to show a group of characters—we have pilots, functional jaegers, but we have all these younger characters. I really want to explore things that are complimentary to the things that I want to explore in the second movie: drift, what drifting does to you, what is needed to drift, a lot of stuff that I think is important, but also the jaeger technology, the kaijus being evolved, ideas about the precursors—the guys that control the kaijus. We have a lot of leeway in 13 episodes and I wanna make it sort of in the same spirit of Pacific Rim, which is the ideal audience for Pacific Rim was young—very young, 11-year-olds and so forth—but with really beautiful design and stories that make these characters interesting in a way that I found them interesting in, for example, Year Zero, the graphic novel that we did. And I think that's the basic thrust of the thing."

On where it might air: "If it connects we'll go on [to more seasons], but the thing is I don't want it to be weekly adventures. I don't want it to be like Chapter One is a little action thing and it gets resolved in 40 minutes or an hour and then the next episode, [it's like] nothing happened. My favorite anime series always have a long arc."
