Ryan admits in the featurette that he was excited to create a film that his kids would watch.

"Detective Pikachu's got some sass, he's got some serious attitude."

"He's a larger than life character and he kind of has to be - he looks like a little yellow cotton ball."

"I try to bring as much personality out in the character as I possibly can."

Reynolds' co-star Justice Smith describes the concept as "incredible."

"This contradiction of seeing this cute cuddly thing have Ryan Reynolds voice... it's incredible."

Watch the full featurette below:

The plot

The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing.

This prompts his son Tim to find out what happened with help from Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu.

Tim is the only human who can talk with Pikachu so they're kind of the dream team.

They join forces and chase clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City.

The city is a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world.

Here, they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot.

A plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu is out on the 10th of May.
