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.”
Check out the adorable first trailer and film synopsis below.

[row]”The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.”[/row]
Detective Pikachu will electrify theaters in Summer 2019.
