    "Digimon Last Evolution - Bonds" May Be the Title For the Digimon Adventure 20th Film

    This one seems likely, especially based on the source...

    Image Thumbnail (custom)

    In comments to TVNinos about anime they'd be marketing at the recent LAScreenings, Daniel Castaneda, Director of Licensing for Toei Animation in Latin America discussed a number of upcoming titles that are being worked on and should be available in 2020.

    Most interesting for us is the name "Digimon Last Evolution - Kizuna".

    With kizuna translating to bonds, and it being said by the producers a few times (including in the recent V-Jump interview) at how important the concept of bonds will be in the 20th Anniversary Adventure film, it feels like there is a pretty good chance the title is either "Digimon Last Evolution - Bonds" or "Digimon Adventure- Last Evolution - Bonds".


    Thanks to our friends at Digisoul for the heads up.

    This is a positive sign for the title of the project.

    Jokes aside, this to me suggests a tone of bittersweetness in the film even though - like tri. before it - it's essentially leading into The Epilogue. But I've also been getting that same bittersweet vibe from the poster.

    That feel when you realise there's still 02 between you and a Tamers and Frontier sequel.

    I'm not completely sure this time. Hiroyuki Kakudō left the project because, according to him, it contradicted the past series.
    Maybe this time they decided to ignore the epilogue. Like, tri. said it was going to lead into the epilogue, but did a very poor job of explaining everyone's career choices. Yamato was just like "well, maybe I'll go to space or something".

    Did they say this movie is going to connect to the epilogue in any interview? I haven't had time to read them recently.
    Anime... PAAWAA!!!

    Not this again, please. We don't what Kakudou meant and it's possible that we never will but it makes no sense to believe it was the epilogue being retconned because tri. is canon to the epilogue and built up a bit for it, regarding the professions, (I agree it was a somewhat bad buildup but, still, a buildup, nonetheless), and this new movie is canon to tri.

    It's only me or that title kinda suggests it may be more than 1 film?

    Kakudo resigned from the project because the 02 kids are going to be ignored again. Period.

    He's really in love with his work on both Adventure & 02, so he has slightly suggested before that he was not perfectly ok with the 02 kids treatment during tri, in a very subtle way, even though he was involved in the music department for the latter project. To be honest, I totally understand his point of view as one of the original creators of Digimon Adventure.

    I'm not too worried about the human side of things bar everyone's choice of degrees, but I'm quite worried about the Digimon side of things which was different in balance between Adventure and Tri., especially if this is a singular entry and has anywhere less than 2 hours in length. Doubt they will give the project 3+ hours and even then, what will be their priority is still worrisome.

    Title-wise, so long as they add 'Adventure' into the title, it should be fine.

    Iím starting to wonder if this movie, even more than just being Adventure-centric, will be mostly Taichi centric. I really doubt they can make a coherent plot if they focus on EVERYONE, and we havenít seen much of everyone else so perhaps they are more background this time.
