In 2016, DIGIMON ADVENTURE tri.: REUNION (デジモンアドベンチャー tri. 第1章「再会」, Dejimon Adobenchaa Torai Dai 1-shoo ‘Sakai’, 2015), the first English-dubbed Digimon feature to be released in the U.S. in 16 years, made its U.S. premiere in cinemas nationwide to rave reviews. In 2018, Fathom Events and Toei Animation Inc. will partner again to bring three exciting new Digimon titles to U.S. big screens with DIGIMON ADVENTURE tri.: LOSS (Thursday, February 1), DIGIMON ADVENTURE tri.: COEXISTENCE (Thursday, May 10) and DIGIMON ADVENTURE tri.: FUTURE (Thursday, September 20), each at 7:30 p.m. local time.
In addition to the anime features, moviegoers will watch exclusive recaps for previous features before each screening. These special events will also feature interviews with cast and crew talent such as the English voice of “Tai,” Joshua Seth for DIGIMON ADVENTURE tri.: LOSS.
Tickets for the DIGIMON ADVENTURE tri. Series can be purchased online by visiting FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in select movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). A complete list of theater locations is available on the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
These three features follow main character Tai, who, several years after his last adventures, was leading a peaceful life in high school. But then one day, Digimon suddenly appeared in the Real World and keep on arbitrarily attacking. This story depicts the DigiDestined later on as the adventure evolves once again.
DIGIMON ADVENTURE tri.: LOSS (デジモンアドベンチャーtri.第4章「喪失」, Dejimon Adobenchaa Torai Dai 4-shoo `Sooshitsu’, 2017)
Thursday, February 1, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. local time
After the “reboot” and Meicoomon’s rampage, Tai and friends arrive in the Digital World. They reunite with their partner Digimon, who have lost all their memories. As everyone discusses what they should do from within the Digital World, Meicoomon suddenly appears and then disappears. She still has her memories for some reason. Meanwhile in the Real World, Nishijima receives word that Himekawa has gone missing. As he investigates, he determines that there’s been some hidden agenda behind her behavior that has to do with a past event that determined both their destinies.
DIGIMON ADVENTURE tri.: COEXISTENCE (デジモンアドベンチャーtri.第5章「共生」, Dejimon Adobenchaa Torai Dai 5-shoo `Kyousei’, 2017)
Thursday, May 10, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. local time
Meicoomon once again begins to rampage when she sees her partner Meiko injured by a mysterious man. Meicoomon, who disappeared into the Real World, is a distortion itself—in possession of too much power, and a key to destroying the world. The arrival of rampaging Meicoomon starts the countdown to the Real World’s collapse. A series of abnormal phenomena occur all over the place. The Digimon who appear through the distortions were waiting for this time to come. The DigiDestined are cast out of the Digital World when it goes out of order, and after returning to the Real World, are driven away by people on account of their accompanying partner Digimon. Meanwhile, a cruel fate is imminent for Kari.
DIGIMON ADVENTURE tri.: FUTURE (デジモンアドベンチャーtri.第6章「ぼくらの未来」, Dejimon Adobenchaa Torai Dai 6-shoo `Bokura no Mirai’, 2018)
Thursday, September 20, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. local time
In this climatic finale, the DigiDestined have suffered; friends are lost, there is a new threat from a mysterious and newly formed Digimon, and the Real World is threatened to be swallowed up by the Digital World. The DigiDestined must stand together to save their friends and our world.
Who knows what the future holds for the DigiDestined, as they prepare for their biggest battle yet.
