The Digimon franchise is set to release a new anime television series entitled “Digimon Ghost Game” as well as a new Digimon Adventure 02 movie, the company said during the “DigiFes 2021″ event.
The Digimon Ghost Game television anime series will premiere this fall on Fuji TV and other channels.
The movie will follow the story of Daisuke Motomiya and his friends from the Digimon Adventure 02 anime. Director Tomohisa Taguchi and writer Akatsuki Yamatoya are reuniting from Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna to work on the new movie.
A teaser visual and trailer providing a preview of the movie described it by saying that “The new Digimon movie is about 02. Now, the door to adventure opens …. ‘I’m the first person to ever partner with a Digimon.'”
Producer Yōsuke Kinoshita (Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna) emphasized that the new film will revolve around the characters from Digimon Adventure 02.
He further explained that the team wanted to tell a story about Daisuke and his friends because there is a certain appeal to their characters, compared to Taichi/Tai and his friends from the first Digimon Adventure television anime.
The Digimon Adventure 02 was the first direct television anime sequel to the first Digimon Adventure series that aired in Japan from April 2000 to March 2001 in Japan with a different set of main characters.
