Shout! Factory Postpones US Home Release of Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna Anime Film

No new release date confirmed right now

Digimon Adventure


Anime News Network reported on May 9 that Shout! Factory won't be able to meet the July 7 release date for the long-awaited home release of the Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna anime film "due to a production delay." The anime film, which had its cinema release cancelled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak back in March, would have seen its first home release in the world on July 7 in the United States, but with no new release date at this stage, the English-speaking world will have to wait a little longer to see the DigiDestined's last adventure.

Shout! Factory had previously announced that the anime film will be available on DVD and in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and will feature the movie in Japanese with English subtitles and an English dub. Bonus features are still to be announced.

The video distributor describes the film as such: 


Tai is now a university student, living alone, working hard at school, and working every day, but with his future still undecided. Meanwhile, Matt and others continue to work on Digimon incidents and activities that help people with partner Digimon. An unprecedented phenomenon occurs and the DigiDestined discovers that when you grow up, your relationship with your partner Digimon will come closer to an end. As a countdown timer activates on the Digivice, they realize that the more you fight with their partner Digimon, the faster their bond breaks. Will you fight for others and lose your partner? The time to choose and decide is approaching fast. There is a short time before "chosen children" will become adults.
