Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning
A new chapter is now upon us that promises to excite Digimon fans: the film “Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning” will arrive in Japanese cinemas on October 02, 27, but first it will stop at the Shinjuku Wald 2023 cinema on the 9th of the same month.
Two years after the battle against Eosmon, the protagonists Daisuke Motomiya, Ken Ichijouji, Miyako Inoue, Iori Hida, Takeru Takaishi and Hikari Yagami find themselves facing a new challenge. They meet a young man named Rui Owada, who claims to be the first "Chosen Child" in history, although his Digivice appears to have no power. Meanwhile, a Digimon named Ukkomon makes his appearance in the real world, with a rather ambitious wish: he wishes that every person could have a Digimon as a companion.
The cast and production
Among the most anticipated voices we find Megumi Ogata, who will voice the new character Rui Ōwada, and Rie Kugimiya, who will play Ukkomon. The news that Ogata is joining the cast of Digimon for the first time has raised many expectations, strengthened by the actress's confidence in the director and in the aesthetics of the film.
Director Tomohisa Taguchi and screenwriter Akatsuki Yamatoya, who have already collaborated on the film “Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna”, reunite again to bring this new adventure to the big screen. In an interview, producer Yōsuke Kinoshita explained the decision to focus on the characters of Digimon Adventure 02, underlining their uniqueness and difference compared to the original cast.
A reflection on the origins
While “Last Evolution Kizuna” explored the end of the Chosen Children's journey, “The Beginning” focuses on their origins. This thematic contrast promises to offer a new perspective, exploring the Digimon universe from a new and intriguing point of view.
“Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning” promises to be an event not to be missed for all fans of this universe. The anticipation is palpable and the expectations are high. The question everyone is asking is: who is Rui Owada really and what role will he have in the story of the Chosen Children? Only time will tell what this new adventure in the digital world holds.
