Pacific Rim: The Black (パシフィック・リム:暗黒の大陸,   Pashifikku Rimu Ankoku no Tairiku, lit. Pacific Rim: Dark Continent) is an upcoming Netflix Original anime sequel to the films Pacific Rim and Pacific Rim Uprising. It will be produced by Legendary Entertainment and Polygon Pictures.[3]

Description

There was a time when Kaiju rose from the Pacific Rim only to encounter gigantic robots, Jaegers, built to fight them back. That time has passed. Now, Australia has been overrun by Kaiju, forcing the evacuation of an entire continent. Left behind, teenage siblings Taylor and Hayley embark on a desperate search for their missing parents, teaching themselves to pilot a battered, long-abandoned Jaeger to help in their quest and give them even the slightest hope of surviving.[4]

Development

Deadline broke the news of a Pacific Rim anime on November 7, 2018, reporting that the series would be co-produced by Craig Kyle and Greg Johnson and feature "two siblings — an idealistic teenage boy and his naïve younger sister — who are forced to pilot an abandoned Jaeger across a hostile landscape in a desperate attempt to find their missing parents."[2] A listing for the series was posted to Netflix sometime later, along with an accompanying synopsis.[5]

During the 2019 Los Angeles Project Anime event, Legendary Entertainment's executive vice president of brand development and consumer products, Elie Dekel, revealed that the series would be released in 2020 and was confirmed for at least two seasons. He also confirmed that the series would be produced in partnership with the Japanese animation studio Polygon Pictures, who had previously worked on the GODZILLA anime films.[3] The next update on the show came during the Netflix Anime Festival 2020 livestream on October 27 in the form of two stills and the opening credits. Now titled Pacific Rim: The Black, it was pushed back to 2021.

Hope this gets received well enough to get Pacific Rim 3. This franchise ROCKS!!! Pacific Rim's kinda the main movie that got me pulled into the kaiju movie fanbase. That and Godzilla (2014). GODZILLA (1998) didn't exactly do it for me. Probably cuz the design seemed a little off and the thought of him asexually reproducing seemed a bit weird.

(At the time I first watch the latter majority of it, I hadn't really watched any of the other Godzilla films. I did play one of the Atari/Pipeworks games and flipped through a couple of books, but the only kaiju whose names I could even remember, for over 13 years, were Godzilla, Mothra, and Mechagodzilla.)
