The Pokémon Company International has entered into an agreement with Fathom Events for the international theatrical rights to Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! outside of Asia.
That will see the highly anticipated movie be screened at cinemas around the world for just two days: Sunday 5th November and Monday 6th November 2017 – with more details such as screening times and special offers to be made available soon.
The movie is an origin story that retells how Ash and Pikachu first met and the adventures they had together as they searched for the Legendary Pokémon Ho-Oh. They will meet Trainers Verity and Sorrel along the way, as well as the new Mythical Pokémon, Marshadow.
“As an origin story, Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! is the perfect way for a new generation of Pokémon fans to experience the beginning of Ash and Pikachu’s friendship, and it offers longtime fans an exciting new look into the start of their epic adventures,” shared Colin Palmer, vice president of marketing at The Pokémon Company International.
“We’re excited to work with Fathom Events, whose expertise in unique theatrical event activations will offer families and fans the opportunity to come together and experience the excitement of Pokémon animation on the big screen.”
