Pokémon Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution

The Pokémon Company has announced the latest animated Pokémon movie, Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution, will be making its debut on the digital streaming service Netflix next month, on 27th February.

If you recall our coverage of this movie last year, you might remember how it is a CGI reimagining of Pokémon: The First Movie which was originally released in North America in 1999. The new version was considered a "major" hit when it was released in Japan and went onto become one of the top-grossing films in its opening weekend.

Here's the description from the official Pokémon website:

In Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution, researchers discover and exploit a fossil of the Mythical Pokémon Mew, unleashing a creation that goes against the very laws of nature: Mewtwo, a Legendary Pokémon intended for use as a tool of destruction. But as Mewtwo becomes aware of its own dubious origin, it begins to resent its human creators and seeks revenge—and Ash, Pikachu, and their friends find themselves at the center of its rampage!
