Film was originally scheduled for April, but was delayed due to COVID-19

Hong Kong film distributor Neofilms announced on Thursday that it will open the Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna anime film in Hong Kong on May 16. The film was originally slated to open in April, but was delayed due to the effects of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Neofilms is streaming a Chinese-subtitled trailer for the film.

The film opened at #6 in Japan, and has earned a cumulative total of 244,336,900 yen (about US$2.35 million). The film opened in Japan on February 21 in 48 theaters.

Tomohisa Taguchi (four-part Persona 3 the Movie film series, Kino's Journey - The Beautiful World, Twin Star Exorcists) directed the film at Yumeta Company. Akatsuki Yamatoya (Digimon Adventure, Digimon Frontier, Digimon: Data Squad) wrote the screenplay, and Seiji Tachikawa (Kino's Journey - The Beautiful World, Blue Spring Ride) was the chief animation director. Toei Animation is credited for production.

Hiromi Seki, Toei Animation's original producer for the Digimon anime projects, served as the supervisor of the new film project. Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru also returned from the first Digimon anime projects as the new film project's character designer. Kenji Watanabe designed the Digimon monsters for the new project, as he did for the previous Digimon projects.
