- The implication that the subbed premiere of a rehash of an incredibly overrated movie with mediocre CGI is more important than new core games
I feel like we're also supposed to care that people at this special premiere event will hear Ichimura's take on Mewtwo, but to them it'll be just another Japanese voice actor saying some lines.
Plus it's very much not a rehash to people who have only ever seen the 4Kids dub. The original version is quite the different experience even if the foundation is the same. It also speaks to possibilities it opens up-- if this event is successful/popular, who's to say they won't do the same with next year's film? Or that it could eventually lead to some kind of official sub release?
The film itself does seem kind of lackluster at the moment (and I would be lying if I said the art style was appealing) but the significance of this event is definitely noteworthy.
