Justice Smith And Your Favorite Pokémon Are On The Case In The First Trailer For 'Detective Pikachu'

Warner Bros. has released the first Detective Pikachu trailer.

The Rob Letterman-directed film stars Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton and Ryan Reynolds as the voice of Pikachu.

It is the first-ever live-action Pokémon film, based on the wildly popular video game and television franchise that began in 1996.

Here's the description: The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.
