posted on by Egan Loo
6-part anime to launch in theaters, on Blu-ray, on iTunes on November 21

Toei Animation began streaming the latest advance video for the first part of the Digimon Adventure tri. anime on Saturday. The same video, which features the theme song "Butter-Fly" by Kouji Wada, debuted at the Digimon Adventure Fes. 2015 event that same day.

AiM (Ai Maeda) is returning for the first part's ending theme "I wish." Kouji Wada returns to perform the original opening theme song, "Butter-Fly," while Ayumi Miyazaki also returns to perform the insert song, "Brave Heart." All three songs are new recordings of songs from the original Digimon Adventure series, and the CDs for all three will go on sale on November 25.

The event also debuted a new poster visual:

The anime was first announced to be a "sequel anime series" premiering in spring. It will be a 6-part film series, with the first film titled "Saikai" (Reunion) starting a limited three-week engagement in 10 theaters on November 21. The Blu-ray Disc for the first part will initially go on sale at the theaters on November 21, and iTunes will also sell the first part on the same day. The retail Blu-ray and DVD releases will follow on December 18.
