Netflix Is Making a Pacific Rim Anime Series

Trese Facebook Page

A Filipino graphic novel featuring local mythical creatures will soon be experienced as an anime series on global streaming service Netflix, an executive said Thursday. "This is a really big commitment".

In addition to the five anime shows, Netflix is also developing a number of Asian titles, including Thai-, Indian- and Chinese-language originals.

Altered Carbon will be set in the same world as the Netflix live-action series.

Per THR, the Pacific Rim anime will follow two siblings, an "idealistic teenage boy and his naïve younger sister", as they fight through a hostile environment in a Jaeger while attempting to search for their parents. That series will be helmed by Craig Kyle (Thor: Ragnarok co-writer) and Greg Johnson (X-Men: Evolution) and produced by Legendary Entertainment.

Another title is an Altered Carbon "feature" based on Netflix's live-action science-fiction series of the same name. One of the many projects on the slate is a feature-length Altered Carbon film, that will take place in the same universe as the live-action series.

Flying Lotus will compose the music and be an executive producer on the show, that is produced by animation studio: MAPPA ("Yuri On Ice", "Kakegurui"). There's Trese, a supernatural series based on Philippine folklore. Production will be undertaken by Shanty Harmayn and Tanya Yuson at BASE Entertainment.
