Amazing Digimon Movie Fan Art Sees DigiDestined Girl Gang

My favorite part of the North American Digimon Movie was the middle section where the Adventure 01 kids reunited with their Digimon to stop Diaboromon’s internet takeover. But while it was always cool seeing Tai, Matt, T.K. and Izzy in action, a full half of the DigiDestined team sat this movie out! One Reddit user wanted to fix that.

Over on /r/digimon, reddit user sindorman shared an incredible piece of fan art that sees the female chosen children logging onto the internet to join in on the fight. The artist managed to perfectly capture Mamoru Hosoda’s take on the early internet, even giving the girls’ Digimons that glossy internet filter we saw on Agumon and the others 20 years ago.

“As a kid i always wanted Mimi, Sora and Kari to come help fight Diaboromon,” sindorman told fellow Digimon fans on Reddit.  “But since that never happened, i figured i’d have to draw it myself.”

Just imagine: TK and Kari’s angel Digimon pairing up! Mimi telecommuting in from Hawaii! Tai and Sora hashing out their beef from the movie over…2000s FaceTime!

Of course, Digimon redditors loved the art, but couldn’t help but point out one person missing. Poor Joe! If we imagine Mimi, Kari, and Sora joining Tai, Matt, Izzy, and T.K. then that means Joe was the only one of the Adventure 01 DigiDestined not in attendance.  Poor Joe can never catch a break.

It’s a shame the “Our War Game” movie had to be so short, because we’d have loved to see all these DigiDestinedDynamics play out on screen in the battle against Diaboromon. If only Hosoda had a second chance to tell the story in Our War Game…oh wait.

New Digimon Reboot Character Redesigns Side By Side

This just in from Japan! Digimon fan twitter account Digi_Channel has posted brand new art assets from Toei animation that show all of the Digidestined redesigns for the 2020 reboot of Digimon Adventure anime series.

The characters in these assets are all striking the same poses with the same hair and facial expressions, but with slightly more modern outfits. Have a look for yourself!

Matt & Tai or Yamato & Taichi

We’ve already had a few good looks at Tai / Taichi thanks to the trailers, but look at Matt / Yamato! A purple shirt? Grey pants? SLEEVES!?

It’s a big change for sure, perhaps one intended to more closely match his Digimon’s colors?

Sora & Izzy or Sora & Koushiro

No gloves for either character? Okay, we’re noticing a trend here. I guess gloves were just too much of a ’90s thing? Apart from that, Sora’s more pinkish aesthetic definitely matches her partner Digimon. Izzy is also looking pretty fresh with a zip up hoody replacing the button up.

Mimi & Joe

These characters remain the most untouched in the 2020 reboot of Digimon Adventure. Mimi has a different colored hat and no gloves, while Joe has pants instead of shorts. Clearly Mimi’s fashion sense hasn’t changed, and Joe just probably doesn’t care about fashion.

T.K. and Kari or Takeru and Hikari

The two angels of the Digimon adventure franchise are looking more adorable than ever in the new reboot! T.K.’s got a striped shirt while Kari has a sort of jean romper / suspenders outfit going on.

What do you think of the new outfits?

Is Digimon Last Evolution Getting An English Dub?

Digimon Adventure Last Evolution: Kizuna is weeks away from premiering in the Western World via Fathom Events’ subtitled movie screenings. But one question fans who grew up with the English voices of Joshua Seth, Jeff Nimoy and the like are dying to know is, will Last Evolution have an English Dub?

As of now the answer is, unfortunately, looking like a no. The last time Fathom Events brought Digimon to the big screens with Digimon Adventure Tri, they brought along a new dub that featured a large portion of the original Fox Kids English cast. The fact that Fathom Events is again bringing us Digimon, but this time subtitled only, does not bode well for fans who grew up with Tai, Matt, T.K., Kari, and the others.

Furthermore, the English voice of Tai recently addressed the question of whether he had heard about a dub or would be reprising his role for the latest Digimon movie.

“As of now, no one from the studio has asked me,” Seth wrote on Twitter. “But I’m hoping that they will. There’s still time.” It’s been over three months since Seth wrote this tweet, and neither he nor the studio have provided an update on the existence of an English dub.

With how much of a role childhood nostalgia seems to be playing in the movie, it’ll be a pretty crushing loss to many fans to not have the nostalgic voices from their childhood bringing these characters to life.

As Joshua Seth mentions in his tweet, however, “There’s still time.” while there’s nothing official, we shouldn’t give up hope that after the Fathom Events release, Toei Animation might double dip on the English speaking market and put together a dub.

If news breaks about a Digimon Adventure Last Evolution Kizuna English Dub, we’ll update you here!
