Many fans of the Pokemon franchise have long waited for a live action Pokemon movie. We have been given lots of cartoon movies but they have never taken on a live action movie until now. Unfortunately many had been hoping to get the original Pokemon story told on the big screen following Ash Ketchum and his companion Pikachu, but unfortunately we were not given that type of movie. Instead Legendary Pictures decided that they wanted to take a different route and go for a different story, this one called Detective Pikachu.
The story itself will follow an all new character named Tim Goodman, who goes on a mission to find his father, which results in him crossing paths with a talking Pokemon, Detective Pikachu. The person portraying Tim Goodman is actor Justice Smith, who is most recently known for his role as Franklin Webb in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The voice of Detective Pikachu will be portrayed by non other than Ryan Reynolds.
We haven’t seen anything from the film yet, but now Legendary Pictures has released the first official banner for the movie featuring a slight name change as well as the look of the banner. As you can see from the image, the movie is now going to be branded as Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, adding Pokemon to the title itself. This will probably be a smart move in the long run as you can more than likely expect a lot of Pokemon movies in the future if this one comes with great success. Pokemon: Detective Pikachu is slated for a May 10, 2019 release date.
