With Detective Pikachu's launch date sneaking up, the promotional campaign is kicking into high gear. That means the red carpet premiere is happening soon! It has been announced that the premiere event is taking place April 25th, 2019 in Tokyo, Japan. This will be a star-studded red carpet, with Ryan Reynolds (Detective Pikachu), Justice Smith (Tim Goodman), Kathryn Netwon (Lucy Stevens), Ken Watanabe (Lt. Yoshida), Ryoma Takeuchi (Tim Goodman's Japanese Voice Actor), Marie Iitoyo (Lucy Steven's Japanese Voice Actor), and director Rob Letterman making an appearance.
There will actually be a chance for some fans in Japan to attend the premiere event. 150 pairs of tickets will be given away via the movie's official Twitter, but there's a couple things worth noting. Apparently the movie won't even be shown at the event, and the celebrities in attendance is subject to change.
