Following Netflix’s announcement that it will stream select films from Studio Ghibli, the streaming platform followed it up with Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution coming to Netflix next month. This is the first time the movie will be shown outside of Japan and Korea.
A CGI remake of the original Pokemon: The First Movie from 1999, Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution reintroduces the original movie with brand new artwork. “Netflix is the ideal platform to help us execute a global simultaneous launch of an animated Pokémon movie on Pokémon Day, a special moment dedicated to celebrating the worldwide Pokémon fan community,” The Pokémon Company International Senior Vice President for International Business Emily Arons said.
Check out the official trailer below:
Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution will be streaming on February 27—which is Pokemon Day, by the way.
