Pokemon isn’t something generally talked about a whole lot here on Majin Planet. When the news of Detective Pikachu coming, and in Live Action, I was shocked. While a fan of the video game series, not so much the anime. Least of all these days. So when word of a live-action Pokemon Movie came out like geez I don’t know like 10 years ago one doesn’t think too much about it.
I suppose well I’ve always dreamed of an RGP aka open world, MMO style Pokemon game on PC for like ever. I actually never thought in my wildest dreams we would actually get a live action Pokemon movie. Considering the advancements in special effects and the last 10 years am I really surprised?
No, not really.
Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu
By now we’ve all heard the news it’s been a little bit now the second trailer just dropped I haven’t actually watched it yet. When I saw the first one I just kind of started shaking my head. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I know in the last animated film “I Choose You Pikachu” or whatever it was called they did something crazy. Pikachu talked at the end of the film.
I don’t mean the standard pika Pikachu thing I mean he spoke English.
That’s pretty crazy. I guess my ideal live action Pokemon movie would be an adaptation of the first season of Pokemon or even the first couple episodes. You know give us that Ash Ketchum and Gary rivalry and his way to the first gym. As I was writing this and thinking about it more how far into the first season of Pokemon would they have to go in a live-action format give a compelling story in a cinema style format while still staying true and not making a series of movies that end up just being the same thing over and over again.
No one wants the same film over and over again.
Maybe the movie is already where he has all the badges and he has to fight the Elite Four? There are a lot of possibilities now I am a fan of the Pokemon video games but doesn’t mean all the video games I’ve played pacifically Detective Pikachu.
I don’t know if I would go with the detective Pikachu as your first outing for Live Action Pokemon movie. and I don’t know to have Ryan Reynolds of all people voicing Pikachu. I’m still having a bit of trouble with the realization that Deadpool is also going to be Pikachu.
Should this be a moment of dread or excitement? For one, I haven’t decided yet. This is probably something I’m going to talk about a little bit more and more detail.
But I do want to apologize for the short article today. Having a sprained hand sucks. Wearing a brace makes it extremely difficult to write. While making the use of voice command for a lot of work. I still have to go back through and re-edit by hand.
The excitement level for this movie is strange. I’m getting ready to go into pre-production and make the official announcement. The return of Three Fat Guys Pokemon Go season 2 the summer. I guess I kind of just announce it right there. Let me know are you excited for detective Pikachu or is it in a strange way horrifying?
