Nice theory but..July teasers and December teasers have never been dubbed, right?My current theory is that this film is being made so it will be a breakout hit with Americans. It's not a very strong theory and this could all end up be me looking too deep into things but:
Of course every one of these points could be struck down immediately and I'll be eating my words in a few months' time. But still...it's not *impossible*, right...?
- The "The Legend is Back" text that appeared on screen is in both Japanese *and* English. That tells me that they're going to want this teaser passed around English language sites when it's finally posted online a few months from now.
- The English version of Movie 22, if past years are any indication, will probably come out sometime around November 2019. Guess what else is in November 2019? The 20th anniversary of the release of the Mewtwo Strikes Back dub.
- In the extremely unlikely event that this movie is *shudders* all CG then that could be another way they're pandering to American audiences. Japan has this idea that America has completely given up on 2D animated films and so making a film that looks like a modern-day American animated film could be a way to get Movie 22 some extra attention.
Also, I'm sure they are aware of the fact that the West is already getting their own movie in May.
There's one coming in a couple of weeks, and I wouldn't be surprised if it outgrosses the original Mewtwo movie.(and, to be fair, what was the last one to get a theatrical release in the U.S.?)
