Digimon (Digital Monsters in Japan) is a large multimedia franchise that was based on Bandai’s Digivice products, which was first released in 1997. The toys were based on Tamagotchis, which were also produced by Bandai. The toys were seen as more female-orientated products, so Bandai created a new line of products for a male equivalent. The first anime adaptation, Digimon Adventure, was produced in 1999 by Toei Animation. A film and TV anime were released alongside each other in 1999, where the film was produced by Mamoru Hosoda (Wolf Children, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time). Since then there have been numerous anime series, toys, figures, manga, video games, and trading card games in the franchise. 2014 marked the 15th anniversary of Digimon Adventure with a new 6 episode anime film/OVA series anime titled Digimon Adventure tri. 2019 marked the 20th anniversary of the franchise and in celebration Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna was announced.
A new anime film based on Digimon Adventure 02 has been announced and is in production.
