Canadian Theatrical News: Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!

For the 20th Pokémon feature film, OLM and the rest of the crew decided to go way back to the beginning, when Ash met Pikachu for the first time. Also, for the first time in a very long time for an entry in this franchise, Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! will be played in theatres across Canada this November, courtesy of Cineplex, Landmark Theatres and The Pokémon Company International. The power of one nostalgia.

The film was directed by Kunihiko Yuyama, who has been with the animated Pokémon productions since the very beginning. Shinji Miyazaki returned for the music. The film opened in Japan on July 15th and has grossed over ¥3 billion, making it the highest grossing Pokémon feature in years. For the English version, Ed Goldfarb is producing the score. He joined the franchise with 2014’s debut of Pokémon the Series: XY. The original English cast wasn’t reunited for this film. Given the franchise’s history, all screenings are expected to solely consist of the English dub.

This special event explores Ash and Pikachu’s first meeting and their adventures as they search for the Legendary Pokémon Ho-Oh. The pair encounter familiar faces along the way, new characters including Trainers Verity and Sorrel, and even a mysterious new Mythical Pokémon, Marshadow. Challenges and epic Pokémon battles abound in this unique new story about the beginning of one of the most beloved friendships in popular culture.
