The official website for the Pokémon anime films revealed on Thursday that Gekijōban Pocket Monster Best Wishes! Kyurem Vs Seikenshi (Pokémon: Black & White the Movie - Kyurem Vs. the Sacred Sword Masters) will open in Japan next year. The website will have an update on December 17.
The next feature film (and the accompanying Pikachu the Movie short) will mark the 15th anniversary of the anime films. The original games celebrated their 15th anniversary in February.
A teaser trailer aired on TV Tokyo on Thursday, and it confirmed that Kunihiko Yuyama is returning for the next film after directing most of the previous films and the Slayers films.
Two feature-length films — Pokémon the Movie: White - Victini and Zekrom and Pokémon the Movie: Black - Victini and Reshiram — opened this year instead of the usual one. Pokémon the Movie: White - Victini and Zekrom played in American theaters this past weekend, and Pokémon the Movie: Black - Victini and Reshiram will run American cable channel Cartoon Network this Saturday.
