Wit Studio has animated visually impressive series like The Ancient Magus’ Bride, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, and Attack on Titan. They are now taking their talents to the Pokémon franchise!
The studio will be co-producing next year’s Pokémon movie with OLM, Inc. Details are slim, but the movie’s tagline is “Everyone’s story begins” and showcases a new character.
Tetsuo Yajima, director of the nostalgic driven Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You, will direct the new movie. Shizue Kaneko, who is known for designing the cast of If Her Flag Breaks, is behind Ash’s new look.
The movie will open in Japanese theaters on July 13, 2018.
