Hey everyone, came upon a rumor that might catch the attention of a lot of people, especially the old fans. And until proven otherwise, this is just a rumor, so don't quote me. Anyway, Legendary Studios, the one that is about to bring Detective Pikachu into theaters, is supposedly in the process of making Live Pokemon movies based off of the games, starting with Red and Blue, the original two. Would anybody be interested in seeing a movie like this, or not really?
As for me, well, to be truthful, I wouldn't feel too sure about it. 20 years ago, even if it was animated, I would have been psyched, but now, not really. The reason why, well, to be honest, Red and Blue is too much of a blank slate, since compared to the other games, it didn't really have much to offer, not even a story. It was too straightforward, with the key objectives of catching, and raising, pokemon, collect the badges, win the league, and along the way, take out Team Rocket. With the movie, it would feel like, either a longer version of Origins, or mainly, filling in a bunch of gaps that were left open by the games.
