DIGIMON ADVENTURE Tri. — REUNION movie synopsis:
It’s been six years since that summer adventure when Tai (now in high school) and the rest of the “DigiDestined” crossed over to the Digital World, and nearly three years since the frenzied final battles between warring factions. With the gate to the Digital World closed, time continues to pass, until the adventure “digi-volves” once again.
DIGIMON ADVENTURE Tri. – REUNION contains the following special features:
· New interviews with director and members of the English voice cast
· Inside look at the Los Angeles movie premiere
