It's official! Legendary Pictures have officially secured a licensing deal from The Pokémon Co. to produce a live action Pokémon movie based on the new character Detective Pikachu.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix were also very close to obtaining the license as well, but Legendary pushed hard following Pokémon GO's incredible popularity.
