During the 2018 Pokmon World Championships some updates were revealed for the film according to the Detective Pikachu game. News of their production and casting were slow at start but has buying steam. The director and actors were present for the event with details.
It will be the single live action adaptation on the Pokmon series. Rob Letterman, Justice Smith and Kathryn Newton were on-stage and truly included the audience from a shot which would be applied inside the film. Chants and only Pikachu and Charizard began the guests that will be put into a pivotal moment on the movie. A completely new logo was revealed in the process and possesses an exceptionally neon glow. Perhaps that will hint in the art style by some means.
The other big news within the event can be found in a release window. May 2019 will be the scheduled period of time but advertising and marketing posts list it for summer 2019, so certainly be more responsive to change.
