Pokémon: The First Movie was released all the way back in 1998, and now more than two decades later it’s getting a full 3D CGI remake!
In the movie, a team of scientists finally discovers a fossil of the legendary Pokémon Mew and succeeds in cloning it to create Mewtwo. However, Mewtwo remains unaware that he was created as a weapon and is nothing more than experiment. When he discovers his true purpose, Mewtwo vows revenge!
The remake will feature full 3D CGI animation and the latest trailer shows off some the franchise’s best known characters in their new looks including Satoshi (Ash in the English version) and Pikachu, Takeshi (Brock), Kasumi (Misty), and many other Pokémon. Veteran actor Ichimura Masachika will once again return as the voice of Mewtwo.
Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution is released in cinemas across Japan from July 12.
