Pacific Rim The Black is Netflix’s upcoming animated series set in the same universe as 2013’s Pacific Rim by Guillermo Del Toro and 2018’s Pacific Rim Uprising by Steven S. DeKnight.
The seven-episode-long (30 minutes each) anime comes from Legendary Entertainment, and co-creators Craig Kyle (Thor Ragnarok) and Greg Johnson (X-Men Evolution).
The synopsis reads:
“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.”
The animation production studio is Polygon Pictures, known for the Netflix Original Anime Series Levius, Ajin Demi-Human, and the Godzilla Netflix Anime Movie Trilogy.
It is slated to premiere on Netflix on 4 March 2021. In the meantime, check out the poster and the trailer below:
