Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna takes place five years after the events of Digimon Adventure tri, the six-part film series released in 2015. Now on the cusp of adulthood, Tai and his DigiDestined friends discover that with age, their bonds with each of their Digimon will ultimately break. How does it end for Tai, Agumon and the others?
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Fathom Events and present Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna to U.S. audiences this spring,” commented Toei Animation president and CEO, Masayuki Endo. “This special 20th anniversary feature film is sure to excite the generation of fans who have grown-up watching this beloved anime series.”
“The Digimon Franchise has been a staple in our anime offerings and will continue to be a large draw for fans across the country,” added Fathom Events CEO, Ray Nutt. “This event is going to be a great way to kick off a strong 2020 lineup and give audiences an exclusive inside look that they cannot experience anywhere else.”
In the new film, Tai is now a university student, living alone, working every day, but his future is still undecided. Meanwhile, Matt and others continue to work on Digimon incidents and activities that help people with partner Digimon. An unprecedented phenomenon occurs and the DigiDestined discovers that when you grow up, your relationship with your partner Digimon will come closer to an end. As a countdown timer activates on the Digivice, they realize that the more you fight with their Partner Digimon, the faster their bond breaks. Will you fight for others and lose your partner? The time to choose and decide is approaching fast. There is a short time before “chosen children” will become adults. This is the last adventure of Tai and Agumon.
