If you haven’t heard by now, Digimon Adventure is getting rebooted into a new anime titled Digimon Adventure:. It will still feature Taichi, Agumon, and the rest of the Digidestined, but it’s not set in the late 90’s anymore, but in 2020. And now, Toei Animation has released a new trailer for the upcoming anime series:
This new anime will be taking place in 2020, and will feature a brand new story featuring Taichi and Agumon, and Taichi is back as a 5th grader! In the story, a large-scale Network Malfunction causes a train which Hikari and her mom are riding to malfunction. Taichi then rushes to Shibuya to try and help them, but he and the rest of the DigiDestined gets transported to the Digital World. This will be a reboot of the original series. It will premiere on April 5 in Japan.
Much like the original 1999 TV anime, Toei Animation will also be animating the project. And not only that, but Masato Mitsuka is serving as series director, with original Digimon Adventure character designer Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru also returning. Expect Toei to reveal more details about this new anime in the days to come.
