Many, many years ago, the first ever Pokemon movie was released and it was a smashing success. Back in 2019, it was reported that there were plans to remake the movie with new graphics and effects, and if you were hoping to catch it, you might be interested to learn that the Pokemon Mewtwo Strikes Back – Evolution will arrive on Netflix next month.
To be more specific, the movie will be released on the 27th of February, 2020. We should note that the movie was actually released back in 2019, but that was the Japanese version. This version will be the English release of the movie, so if you prefer watching the movie in English, then this is for you.
In case you’re too young or might have forgotten, the first ever Pokemon movie revolved around the Mewtwo character, which in a way is similar to the Detective Pikachu movie. It was the first ever Pokemon movie to be released and made its debut way back in 1998. It went on to gross $85 million (which was pretty impressive for its time).
There have been multiple Pokemon movies released since, but as Polygon notes, none of them have managed to achieve the level of success that the original had.
