The official website for the Digimon Adventure tri. ~8-gatsu Tsuitachi no Bōken~ (Digimon Adventure tri.: The Adventure on August 1) stage play adaptation revealed the show's visual, main cast, story, and ticketing information on Saturday.

  • Gaku Matsumoto as Taichi Yagami
  • Shōhei Hashimoto as Yamato Ishida
  • Kaisei Kamimura as Kōshirō Izumi
  • Junya Komatsu as Jō Kido

The "super evolution" stage play will run for 10 performances at the Zepp Blue Theater Roppongi in Tokyo from August 5-13. All tickets cost 7,800 yen (about US$70). Tickets go on sale through lottery between May 20-28, and general sales tickets start on July 2.

Polygon Magic is producing the play, and Akiyoshi Hongo is credited with the original work.

The play will tell a side story centered on the eight DigiDestined. The date of August 1 is a special one to Yamato, Taichi, and the other DigiDestined. While Taichi is busy with soccer practices, Hikari suggests that everyone should go camping together on August 1. Everyone eventually agrees to the idea, and the day of the camping trip comes. However, Mimi has accidentally forgotten the camping equipment, so the excursion gets off to a rough start. Everyone starts to think of ways to overcome the situation, when suddenly Taichi smiles and says "this is just like the time we first went to the Digital World!" The feelings of six years ago resurface, and the August 1 camping trip really gets started. However, that camping site has a secret.
