Bidding Wars: Companies Vie For the Rights to The Pokemon Live-Action Movie

With plenty of beloved properties from Japan getting a Hollywood treatment, it comes as no surprise that giant companies are vying for the rights of the hit animated series “Pokemon.”


It seems that Legendary, who also has the rights to Godzilla, may end up having the rights to the Pokemon franchise,  leaving Sony and Warner Bros.disappointed. While Ninetendo was thinking of using their intellectual properties more aggressively like movies, having a live-action adaptation is hardly their forte.

No final details on this yet but a Pokemon live-action movie is definitely happening in the future.
