Following its announcement earlier this year, Toei Animation has released an official English trailer for the upcoming reboot series Digimon Adventure. The footage above showcases a bit of action with Tai and his partner Agumon, but this series will not be a retelling of the original tale.
This new series is looking to wipe away two decades of Digimon‘s animated history in order to present a wholly different plot in contemporary times. The description for the video reads: “It’s been decided that Digimon Adventure will be broadcast on Japanese TV in 2020 as a completely new animated show. It will depict a “new” adventure that can only be envisioned in modern times, now that the Digital World and real-world are closer to each other than ever before.”
The new anime series will begin airing in Japan on April 5, with an English subbed version speculated to be inbound soon after.
In other entertainment news, Netflix has released a new trailer for Baki season 2.
