Shout Factory! and Toei Animation have announced that they will be releasing Digimon Adventure Tri on Blu-ray and DVD in North America later this year.
“We’re incredibly excited about this opportunity with Toei Animation. Digimon continues to stand as an enduring global pop culture phenomenon. We look forward to bringing these highly entertaining and immersive movies to anime fans and families,” said Melissa Boag, SVP of Kids & Family Entertainment at Shout! Factory.
The deal will allow Shout Factory! gain exclusive territory rights for the home release, digital release, and broadcast distribution for the first three films. The home releases will include dual audio featuring both the English Dub and the original Japanese audio.
Masayuki Endo, president of Toei Animation, had this statement to say about the project.
“Shout! Factory is an exceptional partner as we prepare to share the exciting new chapter of the Digimon saga with our fans across North America,” said Endo. “Digimon Adventure tri – Reunion not only reunites Digimon‘s talented cast and beloved characters, it reconnects the series with a generation of viewers, and perhaps even their children, who can’t wait to follow the adventure into a new era.”
