This month marks a couple of years since Detective Pikachu released in theaters, eventually making a total of $433,000,000 worldwide. Although a sequel to the Pokemon mystery film had been announced before the first movie even released, there hasn’t been any updates since. Unfortunately, if you have been wanting a sequel, remarks from one of the lead stars of Detective Pikachu, Justice Smith, aren’t going to be of much help.
In fact, Smith, who made the remarks in an interview with Inverse, said that “I would love to participate in Detective Pikachu 2. I don’t know if it’s going to happen. I think we have to just kind of bury our hopes. I don’t think it’s going to happen. I really hope so though. Honestly, I’m such a huge fan, who knows, who knows? I hope so”.
