We are all about to be Billy Madison. Sitting around with a bunch of children. This generations Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
When news broke that Ryan Reynolds would be voicing the legend that is Pikachu, the world and myself really didn’t know how to react. But after watching the trailer and looking at this adorable picture, I can’t help but say I’m totally on board. Growing up Pokémon was a big part of my life, at one point in time I was one of the worlds best card players – probably, and I really fell in love with these characters. I can’t believe it’s taken this long to have a live adaptation of these beloved creatures.
I’m getting a vibe of Who Framed Roger Rabbit here, probably a little bit less dark, but they honestly couldn’t have picked a better person to voice Pikachu then good old Ryan Reynolds. But I’m so used to him playing Deadpool that I thought he was going to drop an F-bomb. This is going to be massive at the box-office. And if it turns out the movie is actually quite good as well, this could turn out to be a juggernaut. It looks like a lot of fun, and it was great seeing some of my old favourites again, mixing in some great jokes.
I will always have a soft spot for Pokémon, I’m sure a lot of people my age do. It was some what resurrected with Pokémon Go a few years ago, but this trailer just put a smile on my face maybe it’s because Reynolds was voicing the title character. I will for sure be there opening weekend, like I said this movie is going to be MASSIVE.
Here’s the trailer.
