“PACIFIC RIM” IS AN ANIME?
PACIFIC RIM FILM BECOMES A NETFLIX ANIME (WITH TWO SEASONS?!)
The first Pacific Rim film was a hit with the sequel feeling lackluster, but the franchise has enough star power and niche to be adapted into an anime series. Legendary Entertainment (the entity that brought the films to theaters) have wrapped up their deal with Netflix to create an anime series in the world of the Pacific Rim universe. Most of the details are still unknown, but fans now know when to look out for the series.
The first season of this new series will release in 2020, which is not that far off. More surprisingly, the series has already been ordered for two seasons. Following the Kaiju style of film, Pacific Rim did well in theaters, but the world of the franchise would work better as a television series. The series will follow the plot of two siblings searching for their missing parents. In order to search, they will both pilot an abandoned Jaeger. The involvement of Jaegers means amazing mecha designs for the anime and the possibility of horrifying anime Kaiju; as long as it’s not done with anime CGI.
