As announced via Pokémon.com, the latest Pokémon movie will premiere on Netflix. Coming next month, this marks the first time the movie is available outside Japan and North Korea.
Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back – Evolution proved to be a major success in Japan, becoming one of the nation’s highest-grossing films during its opening weekend.
Evolution is a CGI reimagining of the original 1999 Pokémon: The First Movie. You know the one; it’s where (spoiler alert?) Ash Ketchum dies during the fight between Mew and Mewtwo.
As you’ll probably be aware, he doesn’t stay dead.
As the blurb from Pokémon.com notes;
“In Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution, researchers discover and exploit a fossil of the Mythical Pokémon Mew, unleashing a creation that goes against the very laws of nature: Mewtwo, a Legendary Pokémon intended for use as a tool of destruction.
As Mewtwo becomes aware of its own dubious origin, it begins to resent its human creators and seeks revenge. And Ash, Pikachu, and their friends find themselves at the centre of its rampage!”
Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back – Evolution premieres on Netflix on Pokémon Day – 27th February 2020.
