New Project “Digimon Adventure the Movie” Will Feature Aged Characters

Digimon Adventure tri Reunion

I am loving the current resurgence of the Digimon franchise. Fans were treated to six anime films through Digimon Adventures tri. and now all of us need to be ready for a new project, which is tentatively titled Gekijō-ban Digimon Adventure (Digimon Adventure the Movie). The film is currently in development and will feature aged versions of familiar characters.

Digimon Adventure the Movie is part of the decision to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Digimon franchise. Hiromi Seki will be serving as a supervisor of the upcoming film. He was also the original producer for Toei Animation’s Digimon anime projects. Kenji Watanabe is also returning as a character designer (which includes designing the digital monsters). He worked on the first Digimon anime projects.

Visuals of Taichi Yagami (now a 22-year-old) and Yamato Ishida were shown. I am looking forward to seeing the aged-up versions of other characters. It is also great to know the new film will be set in more modern times (possibly five years after the events of Digimon Adventure tri.).

I have been a fan of Digimon for a long time. The franchise debuted in Japan back in June 1997. The first anime, which made me a fan, premiered in 1999. I instantly picked Patamon as my partner Digimon. Even to this day I occasionally have a fun discussion with my brother (his favorite is Augman) about which partner Digimon is stronger.

While the franchise anime division has gone through many iterations, it was made clear by fans the original cast couldn’t be beaten when it came to fandom interest. That’s why it was great to see the original characters in the Digimon Adventure tri. series, and I’m looking forward to more when Digimon Adventure the Movie is released.

Are you a fan of Digimon? Feel free to share your thoughts about the new movie.

  1. Any Digimon news is good news for me. Although, I would prefer an anime series rather than a another movie.

    1. I think they are doing anime films because they are more successful (or appear to be more successful) compared to an anime series that has to be canceled prematurely if the weekly views don’t remain high (Digimon: Appli Monsters was canceled after a year). But maybe, just maybe, after bringing the original characters to a more modern age in this new film, they might announce an anime series (even a limited one) starring them ^^
