I'll field this set of questions. First, there's the matter of Sarah Brightman's ending song "Be With You~Always By Your Side~". She, of course, is best known for her roles in the broadway show, Phantom of the Opera. The song, I have listened to it. Before I did, I thought that "Be With You" would be an Operatic Solo, highly grandiose('ya know: ten Pokemon movies now) and which could also pull at the heart strings. There are Pokemon songs that fill that void, most famously "Chisaki Mono" from film 6. Did you perhaps wonder if "Be With You" would be a Operatic song?
1) Overall is the animation in this movie far superior to the previous ones as of late? cuz it sure seems that way since i see so much more detail in the
trailers to the animation and backgrounds. the action scenes look fantastic what with dialga and palkia's spacial rend and hyper beam attacks.
2) Also how was SARAH BRIGHTMAN's theme song? was it just present during the movie's ending credits or was it also inserted into the movie?
its interesting that they chose female english vocal artist to sing the theme song for the tenth movie.
It's actually a borderline love ballad. It's almost as dramatic a change in tune and tone as going from "Chisaki" to "L.O.V.E.L.Y. yumeri lovely boy" in film 7. Though this new song is a welcome addition to the pantheon, the first Pocket Monsters song sung entirely in english since the dubbed "Type: Wild", and Sarah is awfully good at singing, I was taken aback at hearing a love song tied to a film whose title pays homage to the Gojira(Godzilla) films of old. Do the two mix?
And as for the animation, I have only seen the trailers so far. I can only say that from what I've seen, the guys at OLM and Shokogaken do beautiful backgrounds, and get better with CGI, color, and the overall animation all the time. That in itself is startling, seeing as there is a Pokemon movie every year. But, I guess that's the way of it in anime. After all, an annual film for Doremon since the late 70's can't be wrong.
I hope that clears things up.
