If you grew up withÂ Digimon and are ready to relive your childhood, then we’ve got some awesome news for you.
Digimon Adventure tri., the follow-up to the first two seasons of theÂ Digimon television series, is heading out of Japan and into select North American theaters for a special, one-night-only event. The first “film” in the series, titledÂ Chapter 1: Reunion, will be released on Thursday, September 15 through Fathom Events, and it will serve as the English-language debut for the film after being released episodically with subtitles on anime streaming services since its Japanese release last year. The film will screen in 400 select theaters around the country, and a full list is available at the Fathom Events website.
Set three years after the conclusion ofÂ Digimon Adventure 02 (the second season of the original anime series), the film follows the original Digidestined (including Tai and his partner Digimon Agumon) as the gate to the Digital World is now closed. Time continues to pass for the heroes until the adventure Digivolves once again.
