Digimon Adventure tri.- Chapter 1: Reunion picks up when the Digimon Adventure 02 series ended
It’s been six years since that summer adventure when Taichi “Tai” Kamiya (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.
The first knowledge of this dub came to be when actor Jeff Nimoy announced on his blog that he was working on it with the floodgates being opened afterwards as news of the first film’s theatrical release and further casting announcements came in. With Tai’s actor Joshua Seth teasing fans on social media about reprising his role until he properly confirmed it.
An interview with Eleven Arts, the company distributing the film in theatres, reveals that the movie’s dub will not tone down the somber, adult feeling that the original Japanese dub has, but will replace the music with what American fans are much more familiar with. Something that the official trailer below can prove.
So what do you think of this cast list? Are you happy they managed to get the majority of actors for both the DigiDestined and their Digimon back, especially when the Japanese dub replaced all of the DigiDestined? Are you excited to see Digimon come back on the big screen? Let us know in the comments below.
