Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has officially announced the release date for the upcoming Pokémon: Detective Pikachu 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital HD; and have also revealed the fun special features.

The Rob Letterman-directed film, which featured Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool 2) as the voice of the titular detective, was a pretty solid hit for Warner Bros., grossing over $425.1 million worldwide ($142M domestic; $283.1M foreign) on an estimated $150 million production budget. 

The home video release will come packaged with a ton of special features, including a special detective mode, an alternate opening, a Pokémon Adventure, five extensive behind-the-scenes making of documentaries, an audio commentary from Mr. Mime, a funny Outside the Actor's Studio short from Ryan Reynolds, and the official "Carry On" music video.

The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim (Justice Smith) to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds): a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.
