Diplo appears in the new Detective Pikachu movie! His cameo is revealed in the latest official trailer.
Given the DJ/producer is stationed behind the DJ booth in the split-second clip, he’s already in character for the role. He appears doing what he does best — setting the scene for the party. The extent of Diplo’s part is unclear at this point, but it’s certainly a cameo worth noting.
It’s a particularly interesting exchange considering Pikachu made a cameo in Jack Ü‘s music video “Where Are Ü Now” featuring Justin Bieber in 2015. You would have easily missed it if you blinked.
Pokémon’s Detective Pikachu hits theaters on May 10, 2019. With Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu, this film already has some major star power behind it.
