Fans of giant robots fighting giant sea monsters, rejoice!

Guillermo Del Toro posted a YouTube message last night announcing a sequel to Pacific Rim, scheduled to be released on April 7, 2017. In the interim, you’ll have to settle for an animated series and more comic books, which they’ll continue to produce right up until the second film.

If you’ve been feeling a particular hankering for “more Kaijus, more Jaegers, kicking each other’s butt,” then this is a very good day. You can check out Del Toro’s full message here:
