In this featurette, director Guillermo del Toro states that one of his goals in preparation for Pacific Rim was to design robots that would get him excited to watch if he was 10 or 12 years old. Mission accomplished, I’d say. This featurette is full of behind-the-scenes footage describing the painstaking process of creating these monstrous robots, known as Jaegers, from each country.
From a design standpoint, the dedication and work produced for preproduction is mind-blowing. They really wanted to make each Jaeger look and feel different. For this alone, I would see this movie in a heartbeat.
