That Japanese cover of "Holding Out for a Hero" was a little surreal.

Ryoma Takeuchi was announced like half a year ago. You guys even reported on it.

The film started production in London in mid-January

Not 2019, I hope! 4 months isn't nearly enough time to produce a film with that much CGI.

Also, you might want to check the Japanese release date. All the news reports I've been watching on the afternoon news suggest Japan is getting the film first, on May 3rd.

Will Toru Okawa reprise his role as Pikachu or is he going to be voiced by a celebrity too? I don't think the article mentions Pikachu's voice. I know Ikue Otani still voices Pikachu´s Pokémon voice.

Man, Pikachu's sass really doesn't come through in the subtitles at all.

That Japanese cover of Holding out for a Hero is pretty nifty though.

Edit: Pikachu does call Ludicolo "ojousan" (young lady), and that's pretty funny.

I'm not sure if she would, because of the kind of character Detective Pikachu is.

Also, I remember Iitoyo from Kyoryuger. Good for her!

When other people hear DP, they still hear a normal Pikachu voice, which is done by Ohtani-san.

If Toru Okawa doesn't reprise his voice, it would be interesting if they got Yasuyuki Kase (Japanese dub voice of Deadpool).

Right, but they were obviously referring to the part Ryan Reynolds is doing in the original release.

Official site confirms that yes, he will.

And, the Japanese dub for Ken Watanabe's character, Detective Yoshida, will be done by Ken Watanabe himself!

Any cameo voice acting by Rica Matsumoto (voice of Satoshi / Ash in the animated series)? Very Happy

Early in the game, you run into another Pikachu, who is looking for his partner, with whom he's trying to "be the very best," but you don't actually run into the trainer. I'd guess we'd get something more along these lines in the movie, rather than a voice cameo.
