The official Pokémon movie website has updated. Translations follow:

Masachika Ichimura Will be Playing the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo!


Masachika Ichimura is returning as a guest voice actor
in "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution", which premieres Friday July 12th!
He will be playing the legendary Pokémon Mewtwo, just like he did in the first movie.

Ichimura gave us the following comment regarding his enthusiasm towards the second Pokémon movie he'll be appearing in,
as well as the Mewtwo role!

Mewtwo, the Pokémon that's a legend to everyone, is evolving further and returning once again.
This movie saw me waking my internal "Mewtwo soul" back up to perform the role.
This year's "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution", resurrected after 21 years, is the first ever Pokémon movie to be animated entirely in full 3DCG.
I want to bring the power of the legendary Pokémon "Mewtwo" to absolutely everyone...
both those of you that saw the first movie and those of you that didn't!
Come, come to the theater!


Those of you that can't wait for the premiere on Friday July 12th, check out the new trailer!

Story


Let the entire world know of this.
About the ultimate starting point.

The mythical Pokémon Mew is said to only show itself to adventurers who possess both "a pure heart and a strong desire to meet it". It is said to be the "origin" of all Pokémon, and as Pokémon researchers all over the world seek its whereabouts, a scientist finally discovers a Mew fossil and starts tempting God, involving himself in a forbidden act based around said fossil.

"Where is this? Who am I...?"

A legendary Pokémon born unto this world by the ego of a human that wanted to create a strong Pokémon. Its name is even Mewtwo. And as Mewtwo, serving as the ultimate weapon, repeatedly carried out experiments without even understanding why it existed, it harbored a hatred towards the human that had birthed it.

"I hereby strike back at the mankind that birthed me!"

At long last, the complete, immortal masterpiece STRIKES BACK all over the world in full 3DCG the summer of 2019!!
