According to the recent livestream, Digimon Adventure 02 will bring back its original voice actors as they reprised their roles in the Digimon Adventure Kizuna films. Reports have also confirmed two new characters will join the fray. Megumi Ogata will voice Rui Owada, a new chosen child who claims to be the first one ever approached by their Digimon partner. Rie Kugimiya will also join the franchise by way of Ukkomon, a new Digimon who is said to be key in Owada's backstory.
At this time, Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning lacks an official release date, but fans are hoping Toei Animation will release the movie in 2023. Currently, the company is overseeing the IP's latest series as Digimon Ghost Game premiered in October 2021.
