The Pokémon Company International and Fathom Events are teaming up once again to bring a new animated feature, Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us, to select cinemas in multiple territories for special limited release engagements. Fans in the US can catch the film at participating theaters on November 24, 26 & 28 as well as December 1. The companies previously enjoyed successful collaboration on Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You around the globe.
Based on the beloved pocket-monster brand, The Power of Us follows Ash and Pikachu as they join forces with a diverse new cast of characters to rescue a seaside town from a series of threatening incidents duing a festival celebrating the Legendary Pokémon Lugia. Full of unique challenges and thrilling Pokémon battles, the heartwarming story illustrates the value of teamwork and putting aside each other’s differences.
“Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us gives fans and families an opportunity to come together in witnessing new plotlines, characters, and settings unfold in the Pokémon world,” said J.C. Smith, senior director of consumer marketing at The Pokémon Company International. “We can’t wait to bring the magic of Pokémon to life on the big screen again with Fathom Events’ expertise in event cinema.”
“We are excited to work with The Pokémon Company International on their latest entry in animation by debuting Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us outside of Japan,” said Ray Nutt, CEO of Fathom Events. “We look forward to delivering another high-quality Pokémon experience that will delight fans nationwide and abroad.”
More information on the select cinema event will be available soon. Since premiering in Japan as Pokémon the Movie: Everyone’s Story, the flick has already been seen by a wide audience.
