The original Pokemon movie holds a very special place in the hearts of many a gamer. Dubbed Pokémon The First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back, it was originally released back in 1998 which means that it has been about 20 years since. The good news is that if you were thinking of rewatching it again, maybe consider waiting because it looks like a CGI remake is in the works.
According to a report from Eurogamer, a teaser trailer for the upcoming movie has been released. While the teaser doesn’t confirm anything, it has led to speculation that this is a hint of the CGI remake of the original movie from back in 1998. Eurogamer says that this has been in the works for a while, with the writer of the movie being Takeshi Shudo who actually passed away in 2010.
For those unfamiliar, Shudo actually wrote the script for the first three Pokemon movies, which means that if they are planning on reusing his script for the CGI remake, it wouldn’t be a surprise if they credited him with it. However that is one of the main questions, and that is whether or not this movie will be a direct recreation in CGI, or if it could be based on the original with some changes.
There is also no word on when the movie is expected to be released, but if its teaser trailer is anything to go by, we might get an official announcement soon.
