Digimon Adventure movie is coming next year as a sequel of the anime series Digimon Adventure tri. And this time with a little bit mature from the latest series. Wait, hold it right there. You remembered, didn’t you?
If you aren’t familiar, let’s take a quick recap;
Digimon Adventure was originally conceived by Bandai, Toei Animation, and WiZ in 1997 as a way to capitalize on the virtual pet craze sparked by Tamagotchi. Digimon stands for “Digital Monsters,” monsters that live in a parallel, digital world that came from mankind’s technology. The next sequel was Digimon Adventure 02, aired a year later.
This series focuses on a group of children known as the DigiDestined (or “Chosen Children” in Japan) that are transported to the world of Digimon and have to fight the various evil digital beasts that roam the land.
Celebrating 15th anniversary, Toei Animation released Digimon Adventure tri, where these chosen kids had turned into high school teenagers.
Quick, wasn’t it?
And now, celebrating the 20th anniversary, in 2019, the sequel film will be released, and we’ll see the kids all aged up to 22. Toei Animation has tapped some familiar talent to oversee the venture. Seki Hiromi, Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru, and Kenji Watanabe will return from the original Digimon anime to serve as supervisor, character designer, and Digimon designer respectively.
Digimon Adventure 2019 Film will be available sometime next year.
