Yes, it's a bit early to get started. But usually the trailer is available within one week today.
And, from the latest Pokeani report:
Work on the summer 2006 Pokémon movie has started in earnest.
According to the blog of screenplay writer Hideki Sonoda, the screenplay has already entered its final stage, having taken about 9 months to write.
And according to the homepage of the lead animation director, Mōri Kazuaki, the trailer for next year's Pokémon movie has been made for the end-of-year commercials for the movies of the Tōhō group, and it seems that work on the movie itself has begun earlier than normal.
In an interview with Yuyama Kunihiko on the November 27 Pokémon Sunday, he visited Italy in order to strengthen his vision of 漂流神殿 - "drifting temple" - and visited the ruins of Rome, as well as the cobalt blue city of Naples. According to Mr. Yuyama, already a clear vision of the movie is ready.
The presently established situation of next year's movie:
- Screenplay, storyboard is almost complete
- A movie trailer will be broadcast with the other end-of-year Tōhō movie commercials.
- The stage this time has Rome as the motif, with a city like Naples?
- The vision of a "drifting temple". The ruins of Rome as the motif.
- A link with Pokémon Ranger?
- 2006 summer (July?)
