The upcoming Detective Pikachu movie’s release date has been revealed. The film is set to debut in cinemas on May 10, 2019.
This reveal follows recent announcements of the lead actors: Ryan Reynolds will star in the movie as Pikachu, Justice Smith will play the male lead, and Kathryn Newton will play the female lead Lucy.
