Bandai has treated fans of the Digimon franchise by hosting a pre-DigiFes stream, which acts as a teaser to the DigiFes 2022 event taking place on July 30th at Tachikawa Stage Garden. While Producer Kinoshita only gave hints about the guest lineup, artwork, and merchandise of the event, he also shared some interesting early details about the upcoming Digimon Adventure 02 movie.
The Digimon Adventure 02 movie will be called ‘The Beginning’, This could indicate that it is a prequel to the Adventure 02 series or a prequel to the Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna movie that released in 2020.
In the Pre-DigiFes stream, Producer Kinoshita showed the front cover of what looks to be the early storyboards of the new movie. Although we didn’t get to see much of what was inside of the document, we did get a single storyboard illustration of Tamers attending a ramen tasting party. Not much information was shared past that, although there was mention of T.K., Patamon and Kari. A heavily redacted plot breakdown of the first scene was also shared, which gave nothing away.
It will be interesting to see if any special cards are released for the Digimon Card Game to help promote the release of this new movie. Promos were distributed through magazines and special packs throughout Japan last year when the Digimon Ghost Game anime was about to release, could we see a similar campaign for the Digimon Adventure 02 movie? If this is the case, which Digimon Adventure 02 Digimon or Tamers would you like to see included as a promos?
