Digimon Adventure Tri. – Reunion takes place six years after that fateful summer when Tai (now in high school) and the rest of the “DigiDestined” crossed into the Digital World, and nearly three years since the frenzied final battles between its warring factions. Time passes uneventfully with the gate to the Digital World closed, until the adventure “digi-volves” once again…
Per its recently announced agreement with Toei, Shout! Will continue to roll out new movie installments from the film series this year.
