A number of previews screenshots of pages from the book were released.
In addition, another new Detective Pikachu promotional clip has been shared. While it is mostly involves Ryan Reynolds, the voice of Detective Pikachu, at the 39 second mark we see how motion capture translated his facial expressions to an in-progress Pikachu model.
Detective Pikachu will appear on theaters on May 10, 2019. The Art and Making of Pokemon Detective Pikachu will be released on May 21, 2019. The graphic novel adaptation will arrive in Summer 2019. The video game that inspired it all is available worldwide on the Nintendo 3DS.
