Comment from Masachika Ichimura
‘The Legend of all of you, that Mewtwo, is finally back with a new evolution. I tried to call out to and awaken a new “Mewtwo soul” within me for the recordings this time. Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution will be revived after 21 years and is the first Pokémon movie to come back in full 3DCG. It doesn’t matter if it’s someone who has seen the first movie or someone who hasn’t seen it… I want the power of the legendary Pokémon Mewtwo to reach all the people! Come to the cinema!’
