Netflix’s Pacific Rim Anime To Premier in 2020

Pacific Rim Movies So Far

Netflix’s Pacific Rim anime will run for two seasons, according to reports. It will premiere on the streaming station sometime in 2020. Released in 2013, the original Pacific Rim flick was Guillermo del Toro’s cinematic love letter to the sci-fi.  The movie took place in a sci-fi future. People had crafted sky-scraping piloted robotics (known as Jaeger) to combat back the Kaiju. In the film, The Kaiju was attacking our globe through a violation in the Pacific Ocean.


Pacific Rim was designed to kick-off a franchise business. But, it took five years to get the sequel, Pacific Rim Uprising, off the ground. Along the road, del Toro quit as the writer-director.  It caused the interest in the Pacific Rim movie seemed to subside generally. In the long run, Uprising gained mediocre reviews and was a box office loss. It almost killed Pacific Rim 3’s chances of occurring in the process.
