As usual, I am starting to develop a bad habit of writing news a little bit late, but not right now! Thanks to a blogger friend of mine, Anime Girls NYC, I found out there’s another new movie coming out in 2018 and it’s Pokemon! According to her blog, the same team who did the movie “I Choose You!” will be part of this movie and creating the story.
I had to do some research as well and based on the trailer, another team changed Ash’s appearance as oppose to his Sun and Moon version. From the looks of the trailer and trailer, the movie will probably be taking place in Sun and Moon but Ash doesn’t look like his anime version from the TV series. According to Polygon, Attack on Titan studio WIT Studios took over the design of Ash. If you like the designs of Attack on Titan, I hope you like their style for this Pokemon movie. The movie will be released in theaters in Japan on July 13, 2018.
I want to say thank you to Anime Girls NYC for the news and updates. Go visit her site for more anime content!
