Pacific Rim Uprising won’t see many familiar faces from the first movie, yet in new footage which was released at Tokyo Comic-Con, actress Rinko Kikuchi, who played Mako Mori, has confirmed her return.
The impression is that unlike the first movie, which was more less a contained story, Pacific Rim Uprising is looking to create a franchise.
Fans of the first Pacific Rim shouldn’t get their hopes up too much about seeing a lot of Mako Mori.
It’s reasonable to assume then that since the events of Pacific Rim, Mako has risen esteem and influence.
