Plans for a Detective Pikachu film sequel were in the works following the successful launch of Pokémon’s live-action big screen debut but now, on the film’s second anniversary, we have our clearest indicator yet we won’t see a Detective Pikachu 2 after all.
Here is the film’s star (no, not Pikachu) Justice Smith, being asked if he’d still be up for it:
“I would love to participate in Detective Pikachu 2. I don’t know if it’s going to happen,” Smith told Inverse. “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.”
