If you thought Pokemon GO was the only thing Nintendo was working on, then you’re wrong. According to several sources, Legendary Pictures & Nintendo have struck a deal to make a live-action Pokemon movie! This movie will begin production in late 2017 so we will have to wait for it quite a bit. While this is great news, there might be something disappointing to many of you. The movie will not be focused on Pokemon per se, but on Great Detective Pikachu.
For those of you who are not familiar with Great Detective Pikachu, it’s a new Pokemon spin-off adventure game that was released in February of this year. In the game you collaborate with a talking Pikachu to solve several mysteries by investigating people and Pokemon in the city. As for the movie itself, the information regarding it is being sealed behind a metal door. It is exciting though to know that a movie based on the Pokemon franchise will be coming in the near future.
Will the movie be worth it? That’s a good question and we believe it will be. Legendary Pictures has an amazing list of movies that they masterfully made so we an expect them to do a great job. Some of the movies they have worked on are: 300, Batman Begins, 10,000 BC, The Hangover, Clash of the Titans, Inception, Man of Steel, Dracula Untold, Warcraft, Interstellar, and the list goes on. Can you really disagree with how well these movies turned out to be?
