Legendary, the studio behind the Pokemon: Detective Pikachu movie, are rumoured to be looking to create at least two new movies set in the Pokemon universe. The studio has apparently been wowed by the initial response to the Pokemon: Detective Pikachu movie and want to create more titles set in the Pokemon universe. These movies are rumoured to be based on Pokemon Red/Blue and a Mewtwo movie.
We now have word that two new movies are in development for the franchise. The first has been widely reported to be a spinoff about powerful psychic Mewtwo (this appears to be a separate project from Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution, the CGI remake of the first Pokémon film). And the second, according to one of our trusted sources, is an adaptation of the games that launched the franchise: Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue.
From what we understand, the project’s intended to be set in the Detective Pikachu universe, but will only have minor connections to that film’s plot. Legendary’s hope though is that they can use the movie as a springboard towards launching a cinematic universe of live-action Pokémon films, so expect the hype levels around the project to be astronomic
