Legendary and Universal revealed the first synopsis:
The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.” Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.

Nice to see Mako Mori mentioned in that synopsis, though it seems like she won't have much screen time. I still get a huge 'made for kids' vibe from this. Why else would they add in a 15-year-old girl who's a hacker? And no official mention of the Kaiju. I wonder if that's what the Jaegers will be facing in the sequel. I hope the Jaegers are up against new Kaiju and not just Jaegers with rogue pilots.

I hope I'm wrong. But this feels more like "transformers" then PacRim.

One thing I found interesting is the jaeger vs jaeger fights. I wonder if when there was no threat to earth, countries turned on each other and were at war?

My exact thought on it.

Don't know if it was because the trailer was so much brighter than PR 1 or what.

PR felt like GDT homage to the giant monster films of the past like Godzilla.
PR2 feels like holly woods homage to the standard transformers/power rangers films action films.

Also love Boyega but that moustache looks like a couple of Caterpillars have gotten stuck under his nose.

This PR junkie is going to watch this trailer a few more times after I get home from work so I can really dissect it. I'll be back tonight with my thoughts. :thumbs:
