'Pacific Rim: The Black' Full Cast List: Meet Gideon Adlon, Calum Worthy and rest of the voice actors of Netflix’s anime series
'Pacific Rim: The Black' will feature the voice of Gideon Adlon as Hayley Travis and Calum Worthy as Taylor Travis
Netflix’s upcoming anime series, ‘Pacific Rim: The Black’ is set in the Pacific World, created by Guillermo del Toro. However, it puts a different spin on narrative compared to the live-action feature-length movies. The show’s primary focus is on its human characters -- a brother and a sister who goes on an adventure to find their parents. From the looks of the recently released trailer, ‘Pacific Rim: The Black’ feels more cinematic than the ‘Pacific Rim 2’ movie, which somehow failed to impress the audience.
Netflix described the upcoming animated series as: “There was a time when Kaiju came out of the Pacific coast to meet gigantic robots, Jaegers, built to fight them. This time has passed. Now Australia has been overrun by Kaiju, forcing the evacuation of an entire continent. Left behind, teenage siblings Taylor and Hayley embark on a desperate search for their missing parents, learning to a battered and long-abandoned Jaeger to aid them in their quest and give them any hope of survival.”
