Toei Animation began streaming two new promotional videos for Digimon Adventure: anime on Friday. Both feature the anime's insert song "Break the chain" by Takayoshi Tanimoto, and tease the story that is "heading toward its finale." Toei Animation also unveiled a new visual for the anime.

Digimon Adventure: premiered in Japan in April 2020. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.

The anime restarted its broadcast from episode 1 last June after delaying new episodes due to the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The new anime takes place in 2020 and features an all-new story centering on Taichi Yagami when he is in his fifth year in elementary school. His partner is Agumon. The story begins in Tokyo when a large-scale network malfunction occurs. Taichi is preparing for his weekend summer camping trip when the incident happens. Taichi's mother and his younger sister Hikari get stuck on a train that won't stop moving, and Taichi heads to Shibuya in order to help them. However, on his way there, he encounters a strange phenomenon that sweeps him up into the Digital World along with the other DigiDestined.

Masato Mitsuka (Digimon Fusion episode director) is serving as series director at Toei Animation. Atsuhiro Tomioka (Inazuma Eleven, Pokémon, One Piece, Beyblade Burst) is supervising the series scripts, and Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru returns from Digimon Adventure: to design the characters. Akihiro Asanuma (Digimon: Data Squad) is the chief animation director. Ryouka Kinoshita (Little Witch Academia, Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!) is the art director, and Toshiki Amada (Fire Force, Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!) is in charge of art setting. Matsuki Hanae, Naoko Sagawa, and Hiroyuki Sakurada are the producers.
