Neil Kaplan has confirmed he won't be back as Hawkmon in Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna.


Based on his tweet it sounds like a combination of deciding to go a different way due to schedule/timing issues.



At the moment the other 02 cast members we know about one way or the other are:
Derek Stephen Prince will be returning as Ken and V-mon.
Brian Donovan is not returning as Davis.
Armadillomon will be a currently unknown new actor.



The US release on home video is currently unscheduled.
The Japanese release is scheduled for September 2nd.


Pre-orders are still open at Amazon for the US release: (affiliate links)
Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna BD/DVD
Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna DVD

Pre-orders are also open for the Japanese release: (affailiate links)
Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna Blu-ray Deluxe Version
Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna Blu-ray
Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna DVD



Some prior Kizuna English casting details can be found here.


Thanks to Steven Wade for the heads up.

Sad. Hawkmon had my favourite voice of the 02 Digimon.

Hopefully whoever takes over will do the role justice.

Well, at least we have Veemon.
I wanna say Wormmon is pretty safe with Paul St. Peter, but I don't wanna get my hopes up again after Donovan not making it in.

Yeah. I'm sure whoever it is, they'll do fine.

Aw i'll miss that accent, hopefully the new guy can pull it off.

and huh, since he said he got confirmation "just now", I guess they really ARE still dubbing even now.

It could also mean that Studiopolis is already at the post production part of the dub to the point Neil Kaplan can't even record unlike Joshua Seth's case.

They might surprise us and cast an actual Brit since it's rather small one-off interpretation of the character.

Considering Tifanie Christun likely won't reprise Yolei and that while they could cast Philece Sampler but could just as easily recast him to a male VA... this is kind of a bummer. We're looking at 1 or 2 returning voice actors for the 02 cast here. There were a few really good replacement actors in Tri but then there was also Koromon, so... fingers crossed for someone good.

One thing for sure that Paul St. Peter will return as Wormmon/Stingmon. Now we'll wait for a direct confirmation.

This is disappointing. Of course it isn't going to ruin the final product, but it would have been nice to see more cast members reprise their roles.
