A new teaser for Pacific Rim: Uprising has arrived, and with it comes a quick look at numerous movie's new Jaegers, along with the reveal of John Boyega's character. The franchise narrowly pulled off getting a sequel, and now we've got an intriguing first look at how it's coming together. The trailer featured the new line of Jaegers considering all the originals were destroyed at the end of the last movie.
Fans might recognize the voice of Ellen McLain, who uses the same voice of GLaDOS (from the Portal video game series) for the A.I. on board the Jaegers from the first Pacific Rim. The video shows a heartfelt breakdown of what it means to pilot a Jaeger, the colossal mechanical marvels built to defend humanity from the scourge of the towering Kaiju monsters.
