"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."
