3 Aug – To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original "Digimon Adventure", Toei Animation recently announced that they are producing a brand new "Digimon" movie.

The news was shared during DigiFest 2021, with the company revealing that the new movie will be based on the "Digimon Adventure 02" anime series.

Not much has been revealed about the project, except that director Tomohisa Taguchi and writer Akatsuki Yamatoya, who previously helmed "Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna", will be reuniting for the project.

It will also focus on Daisuke Motomita and features the characters from "Digimon Adventure 02".

Producer Yosuke Kinoshita explained that the team wanted to tell a story about Daisuke and his friends because they have a different appeal about them, compared to Taichi and his friends from the first Digimon Adventure television anime.

On the other hand, Toei also revealed that they will be debuting their new anime TV series, "Digimon Ghost Game" this fall.

Airing from 2000 to 2001, "Digimon Adventure 02" is the sequel to "Digimon Adventure", and the second anime series in the Digimon franchise.
