When I first saw this trailer the other day, I honestly had no idea that there was a game called “Detective Pikachu” but that is based on my not really being a gamer and barely knowing what anything Pokemon is. Hey it happens and as you readers of this and the PiercingMetal.com website know, I do tend to have my Geek Card filled with comics and toy stuff for that site. Since I wasn’t sure if I should share the trailer and stuff going forward over there, its being presented on “The Chronicles” so let’s take a look at the first official trailer for this Warner Brothers Pictures film.

The Premise: In the Pokémon universe, Tim Goodman is a former Pokémon Trainer and the son of prominent detective Harry Goodman. When his father disappears in a car crash, Tim arrives in Ryme City and ends up meeting Detective Pikachu who was Harry’s former Pokémon partner. Tim is somehow able to understand the Detective, and they reluctantly team up to find Harry and uncover the mystery surrounding his disappearance. Chasing clues through the streets of Ryme City, the dynamic duo soon discover a devious plot that poses a threat to the Pokémon universe.

The Premise: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power follows Adora, an orphan raised by the Horde, an evil army led by Hordak, who rules the planet Etheria with an iron fist. One day, after getting lost in the woods, Adora finds a magic sword that transforms her into the titular Princess of Power, She-Ra. After realizing the suffering that the Horde has inflicted on Etheria and its inhabitants, Adora joins the Resistance in the fight against the Horde through rebuilding the Princess Alliance, a group of other magical girls that once all opposed Hordak. Adora’s newfound allegiance to the Resistance pits her against her former best friend Catra, whose sense of abandonment, malicious ambitions, and the disappearance of her former friend enables her to rise in the ranks of the Horde to become the new heroine’s mortal enemy.

There sure are a lot of family-friendly films coming our way and while many we expected upon learning of their existence, I must admit that a film about the famous UglyDolls was a bit of a surprise. I first encountered these oddities during an early Toy Fair and I loved them. They even made KISS ones which was awesome. Now, the very first trailer for their film is here to enjoy. Check it out.

The Plot: Moxy and her UglyDoll friends travel to the other side of the mountain where Uglyville nestles and finds the town of Perfection, a place where everyone is perfect. There they encounter Lou, who gathers recruits to train for perfection and ultimately find a child in the real world. Eventually, the UglyDolls learn that being oneself is more important than perfection when Moxy meets lonely perfect doll Mandy.
