Detective Pikachu 2 Confirmed with 2022 Release Date, Ryan Reynolds Returning

Detective Pikachu released on May 10, 2019, became the second-highest-grossing video game adaptation, grossing a total of $433 Million Dollars. The film was directed by Rob Letterman and was based on the Pokemon franchise. The movie currently has a 68% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Shortly before the release of the first part Detective Pikachu 2 was announced.

Detective Pikachu 2 Storyline

The movie features a 21-year-old Tim Goodman who has given up his aspirations to become a Pokemon- Trainer.  The plot thickens when Hideo Yoshida, a Ryme City Police detective informs Tim that his father Harry had died in a car accident, leaving behind his Pokemon Pikachu. A Mysterious gas simply called The ‘R’ gets introduced, which upon used leaves all the nearby Pokemon into a frenzy.

It is revealed that Howard Clifford, founder of Ryme,  is the brains behind the Gas. The purpose of the gas is to make humans evolve, just like Pokemons do, which would allow people like him to get rid of their disabilities (Howard is wheelchair-bound). The gas can fuse human and pokemon, but can only work with Pokemon being in a confused state.

In the end, Howard gets arrested and it is revealed that Harry got himself fused with Pikachu, but in the end, he gets into his human body.

Detective Pikachu 2 Official Announcement

On January 25, 2019, Legendary Pictures announced a sequel. They also announced that Oren Uziel was going to screen write the sequel. Uziel has works like “Sonic: The Hedgehog”, “Shimmer Lake”, “The Cloverfield Paradox”, “22 Jump Street” and many others on his resume. No Further details have been announced yet.

Detective Pikachu 2 Cast

No cast members have been announced as of yet. But, we can expect the duo of Justice Smith and Ryan Reynolds as Tim Goodman and Harry Goodman. That’s right, he will probably be appearing physically for Part 2 this time, instead of providing voice- over for Pikachu. Ikue Otani might still provide the voice of Pikachu as heard by everyone else. Kathryn Newton might also be coming back to play her role as Lucy Stevens. Chris Geere as Roger Clifford might play a bigger role in the sequel. There is a less chance of Bill Nighy as Howard Clifford reprising his role as he was arrested in the first part and might continue serving his sentence in the sequel as well.

Detective Pikachu 2 Release Date

No date has been fixed for the sequel of Detective Pikachu. Production Details have not been announced as well. So we have no idea as to how the pandemic is affecting the filming. However, our clairvoyance skills tell us that the movie should be released around Late 2021 to Early 2022.
