The first in a six-part movie series is set for a US release later this year.


Eleven Arts and Toei Animation have announced the upcoming release of Digimon Adventure tri Chapter 1: Reunion, the first in a six film series that serves as a sequel to the original 1999 anime series, Digimon Adventure. This marks the first US theatrical Digimon release since 2000’s Digimon the Movie, which featured three Digimon movies reworked into a single storyline.

The synopsis provided states:

It’s been six years since the summer adventure when Tai (now in high school) and the rest of the DigiDestined crossed over to the Digital World and nearly three years since frenzied final battles between warring factions. With the gate to the Digital World closed, time continues to pass, until the adventure Digivolves once again.

CEO of Eleven Arts, Ko Mori, commented:

We are extremely proud to announce our first time partnership with Toei Animaton. 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

Masayuki Endo, President of Toei Animation commented:

We are excited to partner with ELEVEN ARTS to share this exciting title with audiences across the U.S., 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.”

A one night Fathom Events series across over 300 US cities is planned for September 15th with a traditional multi-city release planned for major cities across the country.
