The dub version cast will be different since Tai voice actor retired so he will have different voice.
Actually, in a video Joshua Seth said that he'll gladly come back to reprise his role as Tai if he were asked to do it.

Why is there still no premiere date

OMO it's like they read my mind! I was hoping that they would use wada kouji for the theme song performance, although I was thinking of a new song but considering his condition I can see why it didn't happen. Still pleased to have the original classic theme song make a comeback in all it's glory. Am not the least bit upset about it at all!!! Yay!!! Can't wait!!!

Nothing of this matters if they don't confirm Ai Maeda for the ending theme.

New key visual

Exactly what I was hoping. Not really a fan of Butterfly but Brave Heart is simply one of my favorite songs of all times, and I'm ovewhhelmed by nostalgia everytime I listen to it. The only other thing that needs to be in this is Matt's harmonica theme.
What a great birthday present this series will be.

Awsome! I hope Digimon Adventure Tri will be as similar as the old one as possible, with improvments ofc.

Will wait for the dub cast, which will hopefully also be the same.

I don't really mind the VA's. I grew up with the Latin American dub, however, recently I watched the Japanese version on Netflix, and it took a whole lot of used to Yamato's voice and other character's voices who sounded completely different in the version I grew up in. Still, it'll be nice to hear the Digimons again.


I'm so so so excited for Brave Heart and Butterfly. Luckily, in the Latin American dub they used the original Japanese songs so this is major nostalgia for me.

I just hope they just won't abuse bad 3D everywhere.

When is this supposed to air? April?

Yep, it's almost here..~

Oh, and aren't some of the cast announced to be back pretty famous/popular?
Like Gomamon's, for instance.
