Detective Pikachu 2 : Release Date, Cast and More Updates!

Detective Pikachu is now in cinemas and if you’ve seen it and need more, you’re in luck! Work is already underway on the sequel. Legendary Pictures announced on January 25 that it had hired Oren Uziel to write down the script for a Detective Pikachu sequel. Will Detective Pikachu 2 come in in 2021?

Detective Pikachu 2 Release Date

The first movie arrived in cinemas on May 10 after production happened between January and May 2018.

A similar timescale would mean that we couldn’t expect to ascertain the sequel before late 2020 if filming got underway this year. Should they need to aim for it, Warner Bros does feature a slot for “Untitled WB Event Film” on December 25, 2020.

We’re probably watching 2021 at the earliest though and Warner Bros has an “Event Film” release slot currently free on Groundhog Day, 2021 for Detective Pikachu 2.

The Cast: Who’s coming back?

Well, at the instant we will assume that Justice Smith is going to be back in Detective Pikachu 2 as Tim Goodman and Ryan Reynolds are going to be back too, only not voicing Detective Pikachu, but playing Tim’s father, Harry Goodman.

The end of the primary movie revealed that the rationale Tim could hear Detective Pikachu was because Mewtwo had transferred Harry’s consciousness into the Pokemon to save lots of him. With the danger gone, Mewtwo restored Harry to his human form and Pikachu is back on the adorable “pika, pika” dialogue. Other potential returnees include Kathryn Newton as Lucy Stevens, a journalist who helps out on the case. Also, Ken Watanabe might return as Harry Goodman’s friend Detective Yoshida.

The Plot of Detective Pikachu 2

At this moment in time, we do not really know what form Detective Pikachu 2 will take. But we reckon it’ll be very different from the primary. Harry has been restored, therefore the sequel could see Tim and Harry solve crimes together. Meanwhile, Pikachu and the other Pokemon might remain voiceless. But that might rob the sequel of what makes the primary movie such a joy.

Could it be a spin-off set within the wider world of Ryme City? We just don’t know at this point

The Trailer

There was no post-credits scene on the first movie to tease the sequel, so we’ll be waiting for the first footage for some time yet. Sorry guys. Meanwhile, enjoy the trailer for Detective Pikachu. You can watch Detective Pikachu here.
