Not only that, the show still continues to capture hearts with its latest installment, Digimon Adventures, which is a reboot of the 1999 original. Although the reprised version wasn’t liked by the veteran fans, it still was good enough to expand the franchise’s fanbase.

The series is often compared to Pokémon and has been shamed as a lousy rip-off of the legendary kodomo. But those who have seen Digimon know how it’s different and one of the finest shows ever made.

Since Digimon is such a massive franchise, DigiFes is an event to celebrate the series. This year they went up a notch and revealed some exciting news for the fans.

The Digimon franchise revealed an upcoming film and a new TV series for Fall 2021 at DigiFes 2021.

Let’s talk about the film first.

The film was announced along with a poster visual and a teaser. Both feature a mysterious little boy with an even more mysterious Digimon.

The teaser reveals that the film will be based on Digimon Adventures 02, which explains Daisuke Motomiya’s monologue in the background.

It hints how the kid in the poster is probably the first human to ever partner with a Digimon. This raises the speculation of the film related to the origin of Digimon altogether.

The producer, Yōsuke Kinoshita, commented that the reason for choosing Digimon Adventures 02 is that Daisuke and his group have a charm of their own. 

Taichi and his friends from the original Digimon Adventures will remain a classic. Meanwhile, Daisuke and company can take it up a notch.

Moreover, Tomohisa Tagauchi and Akatsuki Yamatoya from Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna will be teaming up again for this project.

Now time for the TV series.

The title of the upcoming show is Digimon Ghost Game, and it will premiere in Fall 2021. This series is the Digimon franchise’s ninth installment and will have completely new protagonists.

The poster visual features the new protagonists with silhouettes of their Digimon partner in the background. The three Digimon identified in the visual are Angoramon (rabbit-type), Gammamon (dragon-type), and Jellymon (jellyfish-type).

The poster also has ‘Holograms…? Ghosts…..?’ written on each side. This leads us to a lot of speculations about the show. Though one thing is for sure that this one is going to be a whole new concept.

Are these ghost-type Digimon? Are they holograms? Or is it something else?

You’d be lying if you say that you never wanted a Digimon partner of your own. And why wouldn’t you want one of your own? I mean, they’re cool, reliable, adorable, and can become super powerful.

The announcements made me want to rewatch all of Digimon now. Also, this is a great time to start the anime if you haven’t already.

About Digimon Adventure (1999)

Digimon, short for “Digital Monsters,” is a Japanese media franchise offering toy pets, manga, anime, games, films, and even a trading card game. The franchise was created back in 1997 as a series of virtual pets, influenced by Tamagotchi/nano Giga Pet toys.

The franchise gained momentum with its first anime, Digimon Adventure, and an early video game, Digimon World, both of which were released in 1999.

Digimon, the series focuses on monsters like creatures, who inhabit a “Digital World,” a parallel universe that originated from Earth’s various communication networks. Digimon hatch from eggs called Digi-Eggs, and they go through Digivolution, which changes their appearance and increases their powers over time.

The effect of Digivolution, however, is not permanent. Digimon who have digivolved will find most of the time revert back to their previous form after a battle or if they are too weak to continue. Most of them can even speak.
