A new teaser for an upcoming Digimon movie has dropped, and fans couldn't be more excited.
If you’re a fan of monsters being trained to fight each other, then it's been a pretty good year so far. Nintendo has already announced a new Pokémon game that will be released later this year that has fans frothing at the mouth. Then, there’s Detective Pikachu, which despite featuring weirdly realistic looking Pokémon, actually doesn’t look half bad.
However, what if Pokémon isn’t your go-to monster fighting franchise? What about those who chose Roblox to Pokémon’s Lego? What about Digimon? Well, even they’re getting something, which proves that 2019 is the year that keeps on giving - at least when it comes to animals shooting fire at each other.
Digisoul.net's Twitter has dropped a new teaser for a Digimon movie. The franchise is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary, and what better way to do so than with a whole new film?
As previously reported, the movie seems to pick up around several years after the original anime. Tentatively titled Digimon Adventure, it will feature old DigiDestined characters like Tai, Matt, Sora, Izzy, and others, who will all now be in their early 20s. The film won’t be out for a while, though, as the current release will be sometime in spring of 2020 in Japan.
There’s not much more information beyond the teaser and some promotional art that was shown in an issue of V-Jump Magazine. The teaser mostly focuses on old clips from the anime, so it's probably safe to assume that there will be a lot of references to it in the new film.
Hiromi Seki, the producer of the original anime, is the supervisor for the new movie. He will be joined by designers Kenji Watanabe and Katsuyoshi Nakasuru, who designed the adult versions of the series’ characters.
There’s no word about whether the movie will make it overseas to North America, although it’ll likely be made available in some shape or form eventually.
For fans of Digimon, this movie looks to be going for a rush of nostalgia, as we'll finally get a look at the grown-up versions of the characters we all grew up watching. If done right, the film might spawn new Digimon games and movies after its release next year.
