Last year, American-based movie studio Legendary Films wowed audiences at SDCC with the recent release of Pacific Rim, as well a number of exhibits and guided tours to help promote the release of the newest Godzilla film. This year, Legendary brings a number of interactive experiences to the San Diego Comic-Con floor, as well as a couple exciting announcements!



One of the most popular attractions at the Legendary exhibit is the Pacific Rim: Jaeger Pilot virtual reality experience. Taking adventure of the same Oculus Rift technology used in the X-Men virtual experience, the Jaeger Pilot attraction allows visitors to step into the cockpit of one of the most iconic Jaegers, Gipsy Danger, as it battles one of the giant kaiju from the film. There are also exhibits for the upcoming horror film, Crimson Peak, which will give fans a glimpse at props, costumes, and more , as well an exhibit for the 2016 Warcraft movie, featuring never-before-seen props and weapons from the highly-anticipated movie.

On top of these exhibits, Legendary Films unveiled news about some of their newest upcoming films during their panel on Saturday night. First off, Legendary representatives revealed information about the rumored Godzilla sequel, which is still in the early stages of development. Good news for classic Godzilla kaiju fans is that three of the most iconic Godzilla monsters will be returning for the new movie: moth monster Mothra, massive pterosaur Rodan, and the golden three-headed King Ghidorah! The trio, whom starred alongside Godzilla in the classic 1964 film “Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster”, will only be the beginning, as Legendary also added that several other classic monsters will join Godzilla in future installments.
