Fans of Pacific Rim will be happy to learn the sequel will arrive in theaters on Friday, April 7, 2017. Universal Pictures will be distributing the movie following Legendary Pictures’ new deal at the studio. Warner Bros released the first film on July 11, 2013 and it earned $411 million worldwide before exiting theaters.

Guillermo del Toro will direct the sci-fi action film featuring more Kaijus from a script he’s co-writing with Zak Penn. There’s no word yet on whether any of the original cast, including Charlie Hunnam, will return for the sequel.

And in a special video message Guillermo del Toro also confirmed he’s working on a Pacific Rim animated series as well as more comic books.
