The reboot of the Adventure timeline starts broadcasting on Japanese TV from April 5
Digimon Adventure:, the reboot of the original Digimon Adventure TV anime series, hits Japanese TV screens on April 5, and to whip fans into a Digi-craze, a new trailer was released on March 17 showcasing Greymon in their new animated glory alongside all the new cast information.
Much like Digimon Adventure Tri, the voice cast for the Digidestined have once again been changed, with Yuko Sanpei (Boruto in BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS) leading the team as Taichi, and with Dragon Ball Super veterans Takeshi Kusao (Trunks) playing Joe, and Masako Nozawa (Goku) acting as the narrator, returning from Digimon Tamers, where she also narrated the series. On the other hand, the only replaced Digimon voice was Tailmon, with Mie Sonozaki taking over from Yuka Tokumitsu, who has played Tailmon in the entire franchise thus far, including Digimon Adventure LAST EVOLUTION Kizuna.
Here is the full voice cast with the full character designs.

The website for the new TV anime series released a synopsis on its website, which we translated below:
Networks are now an integral part of human life. But humans are unaware that beyond the network an infinite world exists. The digital world. And the creatures called Digimon that live there...
A large-scale network failure occurs in the Tokyo metropolitan area. A flickering signal or garbled screens are prevalent. The news report that it’s cyber terrorism.
The main character is Taichi Yagami, a fifth-grader living in a tower apartment near Tokyo.
He was home alone to prepare for the weekend summer camp. His mother and sister, Hikari, were on their way to Shibuya but got stuck on an affected train with failed breaks. Taichi hurries to Shibuya to help his mother and sister, but the moment he heads to the platform at the station-
A mysterious phenomenon overtakes the “DigiDestined,” transporting Taichi to the digital world! The children meet their partner Digimon and embark on an unknown “adventure!”

The series will be composed by Atsuhiro Tomioka (Pokémon XY, Ace Attorney, scripts on Dragon Ball Super) with character designs by Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru (original character designer on Digimon Adventure and 02). Akihiro Asanuma (Digimon Frontier, The Kindaichi Case Files Returns) will be the animation director, while Ryoka Kinoshita (Ascendance of a Bookworm) and Toshiki Amada (Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!, Fire Force) will be handling the Art Direction and Art Setting. Toshihiko Sahashi (Reborn!, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed) will be conducting the music for the series. Fuji TV, Yomiuri Advertising Agency, and Toei Animation will be producing the series.
