Digimon Adventure tri – ‘Reunion’ Gets U.S Theatrical Release Date!
Digimon fans in the US are going to be treated to a theatrical release of Digimon Adventure tri – Chapter 1: Reunion in September. Get ready for nostalgia!
Eleven Arts and Toei Animation made the official announcement through a press release. The English version of Digimon Adventure tri – Reunion is going to hit theaters in the US. Both companies are holding a one-night Fathom Events screening in more than 300 theaters on September 15, 2016. A multi-city national theatrical release in major US cities is also planned.
“We are extremely proud to announce our first time partnership with Toei Animaton,” said ELEVEN ARTS CEO, Ko Mori. “We have been huge fans of Toei and the Digimon series for years, and are thrilled to participate in the release of this true hallmark of Japanese Anime. We cannot wait to share a theatrical experience that will be sure to satisfy audiences across North America.”
“We are excited to partner with ELEVEN ARTS to share this exciting title with audiences across the U.S.,” said Masayuki Endo, President of Toei Animation Inc. “American viewers have been eagerly awaiting the next chapter in the Digimon saga for nearly sixteen years, and we’re delighted to have produced this English language version for theaters, giving it the cinematic treatment our fans deserve.”
Six anime films are included in the Digimon Adventure tri project. Reunion and Determination were released in Japan in November, 2015 and March, 2016 respectively. The third film, titled Confession, is set to open in Japan on the 24th of September, 2016. It will have a three week run.
I enjoyed watching both Reunion and Determination. It was fun to see the original cast back together. The Digimon franchise has received success with the Adventure tri project. The franchise is also preparing for the release of Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters. The new anime features a new cast of characters and plot.
