– Jaeger pilots, do you understand? – One way to find out. (intense machine gears turning) – That’s what I’m talking about! (rap music) – Uprising represents the
mentality and the strength that these kids need to conjure
up in order to face obstacles bigger than themselves. There’s a real cool message with that and I love the unity between the kids. They have to come up and fight. You know, they’re the only ones left. And then I just love the
fights and robots. (laughing) All that stuff is real cool to me. – What do we do? – Follow my lead. (machinery) (electronic tones) (crashing) – This is a world in which co-existing is something that we are not used to. And we have a bigger enemy. And I hope, the beauty of
it and nostalgia is kind of the escape this film has and honestly to have a good old time and
have fun and some laughter and unity with the Jaegers is something that we saw for a
snippet in Pacific Rim 1. And now we get to expand on actual good combat in
terms of the Jaegers. We’re now seeing that we can find the Jaeger and Jaeger violence in this movie, which is something that we
didn’t see in the first film. But we thought it was a potential, because of Raleigh’s conflict with some of the pilots in there. For us, it was an expansion of
what’s been created already. – How closely did you get to
work with Guillermo del Toro? – He was involved in the
project in the early stages, but then he got into filming
and directing himself. And so, he was quite distant. But the funny thing about
it is, is that he was always giving us ideas and
then guiding our project ’cause he can’t do that
without his blessing. – We fight! (intense music)
