Aside from that, just the news of the film's production launch, the catchphrase for 02, and a mysterious dialogue were released. The key visual only shows an unidentified boy and Digimon. The release date and details are yet to be announced, so be sure to check back for updates.
【Producer Yosuke Kinoshita's Comment】
The focus of this upcoming film is the characters from 02! There is a different charm to Daisuke's group than Taichi's. Especially because we are currently facing some unprecedented circumstances, I wanted to share with you their charm through this film. But the characters that were announced are not from Daisuke's group. They are an unidentified boy and Digimon with a mysterious dialogue. The illustration was drawn by one of the creators of Digimon, Kenji Watanabe! What kind of meaning does this illustration hold? To be honest, production has just started, so there's a long road ahead of us, but please look forward to our film!
