The DigiDestined are returning with a brand-new movie, Digimon Adventure 02 The Beginning, and today, Toei Animation and Fathom Events revealed details for the film’s two-day theatrical release event in the U.S., which will take place on November 8 and 9.
The film, which is set in the present day, finds the chosen children of Digimon Adventure 02 — the 2000 follow-up to the original Digimon Adventure from 1999 — as 20-year-old young adults.
“It’s 2012, and ten years have passed since the adventure in the Digital World. Daisuke Motomiya is now twenty, and he and the rest of the DigiDestined seem to be changing bit by bit in terms of appearance and lifestyle. Then one day, a giant Digitama suddenly appears in the sky over Tokyo Tower. Daisuke and the others encounter a mysterious young man named Lui Ohwada, who informs them that he’s the first ever DigiDestined in the world …”
Digimon Adventure 02 The Beginning will make its way to 750 theaters across the U.S. through Fathom Events over the course of two days, with nightly presentations at 7 p.m. local time in both English dub (November 8) and Japanese with English subtitles (November 9). This follows the film’s opening in Japan on October 27.
Moviegoers who catch the film in theaters will be treated to a brief introduction to the film by its director. Additionally, the first 50 guests to arrive at each night’s screening will receive a complimentary Digimon Card Game Tamer Party Pack -THE BEGINNING- ver. 2.0, which includes 3 out of 14 possible cards from the new Digimon Card Game deck commemorating the film (first come, first served).
