If you are ready for more Digimon, then you better give it up for Shout! Factory. Earlier this year, the company confirmed it had made a licensing agreement with Toei Animation to bring the anime’s reboot films to the U.S. on home video. And, now, the publisher has teased fans with its impending release of Digimon Adventure tri. Reunion through a new English dubbed trailer.
If you want to know what Shout! Factory has to say about the trailer, then you can read up on it here: “After years of inactivity, the DigiDestined regroup with their Digimon to save their world, but have the years changed their characters too much?”
You can check out the film’s synopsis below:
It's been six years since that 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 the frenzied final battles between warring factions. With the gate to the Digital World closed, time continues to pass, until the adventure “digi-volves” once again.
Currently, four Digimon Adventure tri. films have been released. The first three features are set to debut on home video in the U.S. later this year. Back in January, Shout! Factory confirmed they had signed a multi-picture deal with Toei Animation to bring the films abroad.
“We’re incredibly excited about this opportunity with Toei Animation. Digimon continues to stand as an enduring global pop culture phenomenon. We look forward to bringing these highly entertaining and immersive movies to anime fans and families,” said Melissa Boag, Senior Vice President of Kids & Family Entertainment at Shout! Factory in a statement.
“Shout! Factory is an exceptional partner as we prepare to share the exciting new chapter of the Digimon saga with our fans across North America,” said Masayuki Endo, President of Toei Animation Inc. “Digimon Adventure tri – Reunion not only reunites Digimon’s talented cast and beloved characters, it reconnects the series with a generation of viewers, and perhaps even their children, who can’t wait to follow the adventure into a new era.”
The English voice cast includes Joshua Seth, who voiced the main character Tai Kamiya in the original series, returning to the role for this feature film, as well as Colleen O’Shaughnessey (Toy Story 3) as Sora Takenouchi, Mona Marshall (South Park) as Izzy Izumi, Philece Sampler (The Legend of Korra) as Mimi Tachikawa, Tom Fahn (Digimon: Digital Monsters) as Agumon, Kirk Thornton (Sonic Boom) as Garurumon, Jeff Nimoy (Digimon Data Squad) as Tentomon and Kabuterimon, Melodee Spevack (Digimon: Digital Monsters) as Birdramon, and Dave Mallow (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) as Angemon.
