UPDATE: Buzzfeed got a further statement from del Toro who said this: “The characters I love will return. Raleigh, Mako, Newt, Gottlieb and who knows, maybe even Hannibal Chau – but we are taking them into a fresh territory that will display amazing sights and battles. The first film set the stage and now we’re ready to have a blast.” Further, Buzzfeed confirms that the animated series will debut sometime before the sequel.
