posted on 2011-03-04 13:34 EST
The official Pokémon movie website began streaming a promotional video for the upcoming pair of films, Gekijōban Pocket Monster Best Wishes! Victini to Kuroki Eiyū Zekrom and Gekijōban Pocket Monster Best Wishes! Victini to Shiroki Eiyū Reshiram, on Thursday. The films will both open on July 16 in Japan. The video is not embeddable but can be watched at this link.
The website also announced the guest voice cast for the films, which includes voice actress and singer Nana Mizuki, Kouichi Yamadera, Shoko Nakagawa, Hideki Takahashi, Shosuke Tanihara, Satomi Ishihara, and Mao Daichi.
In the story of the two films, the protagonist Satoshi (Ash in English) and his Pokémon creature Pikachu take part in a battle held during the harvest festival in Aintoōku, and they encounter the mysterious Pokémon Victini. The two films will also feature two different legendary Pokémon — the black hero Zekrom appears before people who seek the pure "ideal," while the white hero Reshiram appears before people who seek the pure "truth." Not incidentally, these two are pivotal Pokémon in the latest games in the franchise, Pokémon Black and White. They also appeared as miniature floats at last year's 84th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.
