Del Toro gave Movie Pilot hints to what is planned for the Pacific Rim animated series and that it would bridge the gap to the second film, it also seem like it would focus on the scientist duo of Newton Geiszler (Charlie Day) and Hermann Gottlieb (Burn Gorman). Check out what Del Toro said below and click here for the full article.
"What’s great is it’s a great set-up and a link between the first movie and the second movie. It really enhances the mythology of the characters; we have cameos of characters from the first movie, but mostly it’s a new set of characters. New jaegers, except for one or two, [and] new kaijus. It’s really fun.”
"The main idea that we're bouncing off is the fact that Newt drifted with a Kaiju brain, and all Kaiju brains are connected. We say that. They are like a hive mentality. So, you know, draw your own conclusions."
