posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Voice actor Jeff Nimoy confirmed on his official Twitter account on Tuesday that he will reprise his role as Tentomon in an upcoming English-dubbed version of the Digimon Adventure tri. anime. He added that he will not direct the dub, as he has done for multiple Digimon series in the past.
The Digimon Adventure tri. project, which celebrates the 15th anniversary of Digimon Adventure (the first entry in the series), will have a total of six films. While the anime's human characters have a completely different Japanese voice cast from the original Digimon Adventure, the Digimon partners feature the same Japanese cast.
The second film, Digimon Adventure tri. Ketsui (Determination), opened in Japan on March 12 for a three-week run in theaters in Japan. Crunchyroll began streaming the film as four episodes on March 11. The first film, Digimon Adventure tri. Saikai (Reunion), opened in Japanese theaters last November, and Crunchyroll began streaming the film on the same day as four episodes.
The third film, Digimon Adventure tri. Kokuhaku, will open in Japan for three weeks on September 24, and will be available for paid streaming in Japan on the same day. The Blu-ray Disc of the film will be on sale at theaters on the same day, and the general release on Blu-ray Disc and DVD will be on November 2.
