Have no fear, Pikachu is here! He’ll save the day and be totally adorable while doing so!
The very first trailer for the upcoming Warner Bros. film Pokemon Detective Pikachu dropped on Monday, and we are already obsessed with this film!
The live-action film is directed by Rob Letterman (Goosebumps, Monsters Vs. Aliens) and stars Ryan Reynolds as everyone’s favorite Pokemon, Pikachu. The film also stars Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) as Tim; Kathryn Newton (Lady Bird, TV’s Big Little Lies) as Lucy, a junior reporter following her first big story; and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (Godzilla, The Last Samurai) as Lt. Yoshida.
Reynolds tweeted out the first trailer accompanied with clever commentary which only he could provide. He tweeted, “I think we all knew I’d wind up as a miniature detective repeatedly saying the same two words. Just didn’t think it’d be this soon.”
