Unleashing Pokémon into the big, bold world of film
The animated TV series “Pokémon” began in 1997. Pikachu quickly captivated audiences as the protagonist Ash’s partner, and today Pikachu is the familiar symbol of Pokémon known and loved all around the world. The theatrical film version, first released in 1998, has become a staple of the summer season. Then in 2019, “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu,” the first live-action Hollywood film, hit screens worldwide. Audiences thrilled to see Pikachu, with his adorably wrinkled face, actually speaking. In the years ahead we will continue working with creative partners everywhere to produce new video works that will bring added excitement to avid Pokémon fans and also introduce new fans to the fun and enjoyment of life with Pokémon.
