Pacific Rim creator Guillermo Del Toro had this to say.

“I am very proud and happy to welcome John into a fantastic sandbox. The Pacific Rim universe will be reinforced with him as a leading man as it continues to be a multicultural, multi-layered world. ‘The World saving the world’ was our goal and I couldn’t think of a better man for the job.”

Boyega has been to a galaxy far, far, away and now he’s about to enter The Drift.

Those Kaiju don’t stand a chance.
