Steven S. DeKnight directs Pacific Rim Uprising, the sequel to the epic action-adventure Pacific Rim which Guillermo del Toro created in 2013. With a script penned by Zak Penn, Jon Spaights and Guillermo del Toro, Pacific Rim Uprising will introduce new characters and Jaegers as they combat an evolved Kaiju threat once again for Humanity's survival.

A new look at Pacific Rim 2: Uprising's Gipsy Avenger Jaeger!

Pacific Rim 2: Uprising is currently in its post-production stage, where ILM are busy bringing the dramatic battle sequences between Kaiju and man-made Jaeger mechs to life. But, before ILM got to have a crack at the Pacific Rim sequel, the film's creative focus was guided by its concept artists. Our pal Matt Hatton, concept artist on Pacific Rim 2, as well as the recent Prometheus sequel Alien: Covenant has shared a photo is his crew sweater that he received while working on the film. 

The sweater depicts the head of what we now know to be the new protagonist Jaeger Gipsy Avenger - an upgraded evolution of the heroic Gipsy Danger from Guillermo del Toro's original. The title also seems to signify that the title for Pacific Rim: Uprising will in fact have a "2" added between Pacific Rim and the Uprising subtitle. Check it out:

Matt also briefly explained how the budgetary constraints placed on Uprising made it a challenging process, but yet still an enjoyable one nonetheless. Unfortunately he can't share more at this time, but as soon as he is able, you'll be able to find it right here, on PacificRim2-Movie.com!

So they're going for the Gundam look right?

It definitely has more of a modern robot anime look, than the first movie's more retro design tropes.

Also seems more intricate in terms of details. The original Jaegers were modeled after old, giant war ships, with huge slabs of metal holding them together. This one seems like it has more working parts. Not sure if that'll be a hindrance or an asset.

I see a lot of inspiration taken from Striker Eureka. Makes sense in-universe, since that thing was the strongest and most advanced Jaeger ever created.
