When ‘Pacific Rim’ was released in 2013, it seemed to satisfy our primal desire to be awed by big spectacles. It catered to the same demographic as the ‘Transformers franchise has for years. But, unlike the previous franchise, ‘Pacific Rim’ seemed to combine brawn and brain. It takes pride in its ridiculousness and thrives on a massive scale. In some ways, Pacific Rim accomplished what many modern-day Transformers and Godzilla adaptations could not.
Guillermo del Toro, the film’s visionary director, deserves a lot of credit for its success. It just goes to show how, in capable hands, even a ridiculous theme like giant robots fighting giant monsters to save the Earth can be fully entertaining and satisfying. Following the huge success of ‘Pacific Rim,’ the sequel was released in 2018. Even though it did not exactly replicate the predecessor’s critical and commercial success, it was not a major flop. It suffered from the loss of key cast members from the first film, as well as a change in direction.
‘Pacific Rim: Uprising,’ on the other hand, gave birth to the possibility of ‘Pacific Rim 3’. The franchise can come full circle with ‘Pacific Rim 3’. So, let’s talk about the upcoming film ‘Pacific Rim.’ But first, we need to go over what happened in the first two movies. This will aid our comprehension and anticipation of the plot of ‘Pacific Rim 3’.

Release Date for Pacific Rim 3
Pacific Rim: Uprising received a mixed reaction from the audience. For everyone, it was a hit and a miss. This was the sequel to the first film in the series. The first part of the story received a lot of attention, but the second fell short. As a result, it is unknown whether a third film in the Pacific Rim series will be made.
Not long after the release of Pacific Rim: Uprising, Steven S. DeKnight, better known as del Toro, revealed some details about another plot point in the film. He did bring up some new ideas and stated that he wanted the entire team to collaborate on putting them into action. However, he did not go into great detail about it because he did not want to reveal the entire plot of the third film.
If the audience becomes so enthusiastic about Pacific Rim 3 that it persuades the producers, we may see the third film as soon as the end of 2022.
The plot of Pacific Rim 3
The plots of Pacific Rim and Monster Verse were rumored to be intertwined. Del Toro has stated unequivocally that this will not be the plot of the third film. He also stated that he had no plans to make a third Pacific Rim film at the time.
Fans of the Pacific Rim franchise will be disappointed by this news. We, like the rest of you, believe that there is still enough material for a third episode. When Pacific Rim: Uprising ended, it left many questions unanswered. As if that weren’t enough, we’re all curious about what happens to Mako Mori.
Pacific Rim 3 appears to have enough content and story to tell, but the film’s box office returns are a concern. The film clearly requires a significant investment, and we’ve all seen what happened with the sequel. It’s unfortunate, but there’s nothing we can do about it.
This is not the end of the Pacific Rim story. In the near future, Netflix is expected to make an official announcement about a new series. An original anime series titled Pacific Rim: The Black is in the works as a follow-up to the first two films in the Pacific Rim saga. Anything could happen at any time, and who knows what the director has planned? If Netflix’s new Pacific Rim anime series hasn’t been announced yet, we’re hoping it will be soon.
