While we definitely don't have confirmation, a few different things have popped up on an ongoing basis, to suggest an English dub for Digimon Adventure: is currently being worked on, with a release coming potentially sooner rather than later.
First, from prior Digimon cast members...
Awhile back Colleen O’Shaughnessey responded to a comment on Instragram about them not bringing back to the old cast. In the past cast hasn't been fully aware, so while we mentioned it offhand on the podcast, there wasn't much to report on at the time.
Yesterday, Joshua Seth responded to a question on Twitter about Digimon from 2020 specifically, saying roughly the same thing, that it's being done with a brand new cast.
The Japanese cast for the kids in Adventure: was an all new cast, while most of the Digimon partners themselves returned.
On top of that, we have an oddity in the case of the US release version of the Shodo figures changing their branding.
Wave 1 came out last year using the legacy English branding, while Wave 2, coming out in April, is switching to Adventure: branding.
We'll see where things go, since it's possibly it's all just coincidental timing and misunderstandings, but these things, combined with Toei and Bandai both mentioning more and more how the brand is doing internationally (with a focus on North America) with plans to expand that even more, tends to mean that getting news on a dub won't be unexpected at this point.
And while no guarentee of it, it's also been mentioned that some parts of the Digimon Con stream will be unique based on if you watch the English or Japanese streams, so it'll be interesting to see if we might have news about it by the end of the month.
