Netflix is releasing a new, CGI animated version of the very first Pokémon motion picture. Dubbed Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back– Advancement, the remake of the 1998 movie follows Ash and good friends as they get wrapped up in a famous pokémon’s quest for vengeance.
Much like the initial movie, Advancement is the story of human-made pokémon Mewtwo. The first trailer for the movie retreads familiar ground– from Mewtwo’s creation to the trainer competitors that draws Ash and pals into the conflict in the very first location.
For fans of the original, the new CGI design may be. well, let’s simply state a little disconcerting. The hyper-realistic pokémon of Investigator Pikachu (in all their computer-generated, often horrifying magnificence) have actually disappeared. Instead, Development deviates to Pixar meets Johnny Jonny Yes Papa; Misty by way of a llama.
Mewtwo Strikes Back– Evolution will arrive on Netflix on February 27 th.
