It must have been quite the chore casting a movie like “Pokemon Detective Pikachu”. The sheer number of Pokemon alone is daunting, but trying to find the perfect fit for this movie must have been an even bigger chore. Today, Legendary released the casting tape with all the auditions from the Pokemon who made it into the film, and it is super cute!
Check out the auditions below:
“Pokemon Detective Pikachu” lands in theaters on May 10. It’s super effective!
Warner Bros. upcoming “Pokemon Detective Pikachu” film has turned many heads, with its odd premise and unique look at how Pokemon would appear in our world. It drew a lot of interest thanks to fans demanding star of TV and film Danny DeVito voice the titular pocket monster. Turns out, we almost had that dream come true.
In an interview with Game Informer, Detective Pikachu producer Cale Boyter explained that when movie execs found out about the public outcry to have Danny Devito voice Pikachu, they began to seriously consider it. The studio even made a reel to show how his voice would fit with the movie!
Here is the quote:
We definitely thought about it and how it might inform the spirit of it. Danny is incredible by the way. I am a huge fan of Danny DeVito.
It was really very funny, so I couldn’t speak to all the reasons why it wasn’t Danny DeVito cast. I love Danny and some point maybe after the movie comes about, we can share those early tests. It’s absolutely hilarious.
I can’t give away too much, but in terms of where the story goes and how it evolves, we had to sort of look at everything, including what fans weren’t seeing yet to make the decision. But that spirit of Danny DeVito, I promise you, is still inside of Pikachu.
Instead of DeVito, we have Ryan Reynolds, which is still pretty good. But imagine what could have been if we had DeVito in the role, and frankly, I would not be surprised to see someone make a cut of the film after its release with all of Pikachu’s lines replaced with DeVito voiceover.
Holy expletive Pokemon fans! We just heard Pikachu curse in the latest trailer for “Pokemon Detective Pikachu”!
Warner Bros released a new trailer today that gives us more of a backstory to Pikachu, who is voiced by Ryan Reynolds. We also get a better look at many of the other Pokemon who populate this world (Mewtwo!). Most importantly, we learn what it looks like when a Pikachu says a swear word.
Check out the new trailer below:
Sure, it’s not an F-bomb, and we have heard Ryan Reynolds say far worse in any Deadpool movie. But for Pikachu to drop an expletive is quite the shocker.
The movie is actually still not rated by the MPAA, but look for it to likely be a PG rating. The hold-up on a rating may be WB trying to see if they can drop it to a G rating.
We are here live for day two of NY Toy Fair 2019, and here is our live stream from the Wicked Cool Toys booth. We are here mainly to check out the Pokemon stuff since we have had a lot of requests for this, but this video also covers some of their new WWE products.
Sorry for the video quality, the Javits Center wifi was very spotty today and I was using my data plan for the other vids, which ran out this morning.
