All you need to know:
What’s the Plot?
2019’s action-comedy romp Pokémon: Detective Pikachu is a loose adaptation of the Nintendo 3Ds game of the same name. With an extremely huge fan following, the first movie was a hit. It’s being rumoured that the Legendary is developing a spin-off focused on Mewtwo. The storyline of iconic video games Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue are also being taken into consideration.Source: Looper
Release Date and Trailer
The official date hasn’t been announced yet, yet it is estimated to release in late 2021 or early 2022. In between announcement and release, it took Detective Pikachu about three years to reach near our homes. Fans can expect the same trend this time as well. A teaser trailer followed by an official trailer will be released as soon as the official announcement is made.
Who’s in the cast?
So far, there hasn’t been any official announcement regarding who would be a part of the sequel, hence we can expect the return of many old characters. Since the release of the first movie, we have caught a lot of our favourite Pokemon on the screen with Detective Pikachu, yet we realize not all can be a part of the movie. But with high hopes for Detective Pikachu – 2, we can expect a few of them – Mewoth, Mew, Charmeleon, Mimikyu, Ho-oh, Magnemite and many more.
Here’s the Catch
Detective Pikachu centred on the efforts of Tim Goodman to find his missing father, Harry Goodman, with assistance from his Pokémon, Pikachu. However, at the end of the movie, we witness Mewtwo “un-fusing” Harry from his Pokémon. The father-son duo, with Pokémon Pikachu, is all set for new adventures, but will Harry somehow be able to “fuse” with his Pokémon again? Will it be Tim’s turn this time?
Stay tuned for further updates and releases!
