A lot has gone on for me this month. Not only the new announcements for ESG:MA that's been driving me insane constantly, but dealing with other things yet again I wish not to name. I found this small excert taken from a tumblr account and though the translation may not be entirely accurate, it seems reasonable enough to me.
"The official title has been announced! "ExtremeSpeed Genesect: Mewtwo Awakens." Message from Yuyama Kantoku, about Mewtwo in the movie who has made appearances since the first production!
● About Mewtwo in this work
In our first work, "Mewtwo Strikes Back", Mewtwo has been related to themes about the self and the world, with questions about himself like "Who am I?"
This time Mewtwo has been out in the world since then, and sees the world as a little bit bigger place, where it possesses images of the world and its own thinking.
I'm intending for it to feel like Mewtwo has overcome a limit in regards to the previous time.
Its not the same Mewtwo (as in the first movie), but a Mewtwo who has gone out into the world— but what will he be like this time?
● Genesect and Mewtwo
As for common features between Genesect and Mewtwo,
they are both Pokemon who have arms/hands like people.
Mewtwo is a Pokemon that was born through the construction of Mew's genes, and Genesect is a Pokemon that lived 300,000,000 years ago, but was resurrected by Team Plasma.
Through their commonalities they ultimately clash with each other…
How they get through this is something that will be a big movie theme.
Its something that crosses the boundaries between humans and Pokemon.
Overcoming your own limits that you possess.
Then, since its "Extremespeed Genesect", I think speed will be a type of boundary overcome in battle."
Yuyama refers to Mewtwo as not being the same Mewtwo, but a Mewtwo that has 'gone out into the world' and the majority of the time refers to him as an 'it;' understandably so as Mewtwo is genderless, but he also mentions 'he.' Probably just a slip up, but it confirms (to me anyhow) that Mewtwo isn't a female as some people assume he is. Just because Mewtwo is being voiced by a female voice actor in the JLV dub is not to say that he is female. Personally, I just want to hear information about the ELV dub, and whether or not Dan Green will return to voice him. You're probably so sick of Mewtwo information by now. But for me it's like clinging onto every last bit of rope I can find while dangling over a cliff. It's literally doing my head in.
People seriously need to stop crying about their 'childhoods being destroyed' though. A new form does not equal a new evolution. The amount of hatred and butthurt and crying genwunners I've seen since the announcement is just beyond ridiculous. Mewtwo's new form is awesome so deal with it. Not everybody wants to give up Pokemon forever over it, and in fact I have BOTH X & Y on pre-order just in case.

Trough it does make me wonder does it mean Mewtwo got in touch with its femmine side? xD
( some people in a forum I followed were claming it was in fact an evolution ! )
however the voice just kind of puts me off. There is proof that this is the same Mewtwo from the first movie as the movie manga has a scene where Ash talks to Cyian about how Mewtwo hated humans. ( which refers the events of Mewtwo Returns. )
The new voice is just..toooo girllyy. If you compare it to both the English, Dutch and Japanese voice that I all grew up with it's a big chance. I still would love to see this movie but I do hope this is not the same Mewtwo if it is I am just confused by the high pitch Japanese female voice.
Mewtwo is also refered as a he in the Pokemon manga and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Games not to mention Mewtwo talks in Male-Baku form in Japanese. So since this is the same director of the first movie I just wonder why the sudden chance in voice.
I usually find the raw episodes since i'm to desperate to wait for subs in English and sometimes its just the episode with no preview included.
And yes, I noticed that and had to laugh. It's really pathetic how they carry on about this, giving up Pokemon simply because the best Pokemon is even more powerful than he appears to be. I love his new form. I will admit it took me some getting used to at first, but I think he looks amazing. I just ignore the genwunners, but when they attack Mewtwo personally about it, saying how shit he has become or looks, then I get angry. Like one girl who thought it was funny to post up a picture of Mewtwo basically telling himself to die. FML.
I'm looking very forward to this movie indeed. I just hope it shuts the genwunners up.
Lol. I can't wait to get the games!
And of course, the original Strikes Back VA passed away some time ago as well.
What a world.
