Announced two years ago by the streaming service, Netflix has now revealed a first look and an official title for their upcoming Pacific Rim anime series.
Confirmed for a 2021 release, the series is officially titled Pacific Rim: The Black and follows a pair of siblings and their battered, long-abandoned Jaegar as they battle across a continent of danger. The series will seemingly be set long after the defeat of the Kaiju from the 2013 film, and if the first look photos are any indication it’s possible it will be set between the original Pacific Rim and the 2018 sequel Pacific Rim: Uprising.
Showrunners Craig Kyle and Greg Johnson will tackle the series following their work on other animated shows like X-Men: Evolution and Wolverine and the X-Men. The series is co-produced by Tokyo-based animation company Polygon Pictures and has already been given a two season order by the streamer. It’s unclear how many episodes will be included across the seasons or when exactly they’ll premiere on Netflix.
The following cinematic opening trailer was uploaded by user Rubi Gamingx who claims this is a low resolution version of the opening credits animation for the show.
