Next year marks the 20th anniversary since Digimon first leapt off the drawing board at Toei Animation and permanently embedded its lovable digital monsters into the deepest crevices of our fondest childhood memories. Now, it seems that the producers of Toei Animation are preparing to send a lot of currently working young adults on a trip down memory lane as they prepare to launch the final instalment of the Digimon Adventure films– Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna.
The film’s title; along with a teaser poster, was first officially announced by Toei at the Anime Expo. Following the official announcement, the first teaser trailer was released on Toei’s official Twitter profile yesterday, of which gave fans worldwide a preview of an ‘aged’ Tai and Agumon.
The film will be set further in the future from the previous instalment, with the original Digi-Destined crew in their 20s. Toei Animation has announced that this instalment will see the return of the original cast from the original anime series for one final ‘hoorah’.
The short 50-second long teaser first pans to an older Tai, walking along a pier of sorts with Agumon waddling behind him with his adorable duck-like walk, when Agumon asks Tai a soul-searching yet tear-jerking question that stops Tai in his steps (we won’t spoil it for you by telling you what the question was).
From the teaser, which ended far too quickly for most Digimon Fanatics, we learn that Tai (who now has an upgraded Digivice with a ‘clock-shaped buffer-wheel’ of sorts on its face– as if counting down to something), and Agumon are preparing to face off a formidable and unknown enemy that’s breaking through to the real world.
Directed by Tomohisa Taguchi, Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna is scheduled for release on the 21st of February 2020 in Japan.
