WATCH: Trailer hits for anime series Pacific Rim: The Black

February 2nd, 2021 by Marc Comments

Some great news for fans of the Pacific Rim franchise today as we have a trailer for the upcoming animated series Pacific Rim: The Black.

The new series from Netflix seems to take place after the first two movies – sadly, it’s unlikely we’ll get a third movie without the man who created the franchise, Guillermo Del Toro – and focuses on a brother and sister who pilot a Jaeger they have found in a quest to find their lost parents. And it’s set in Australia.

The trailer seems to show the duo activating The Drift for the first time – The Drift, as fans of the franchise will know, is the connection between pilots that is unique and allows them to work together to pilot the giant walking robots.

The series has already been granted two seasons at Netflix and we’re excited as hell about this… what about you?

Let me know your thoughts, gang.

As Kaiju rising from the sea overrun Australia, two siblings search for their parents as they fight to survive, together.

Premieres March 4th only on Netflix.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
