Licensing GET: Shout! Factory grabs Digimon Adventure tri.


Greymon digivolves into Blu-raymon!

It's been a good while since Digimon Adventure tri.'s theatrical event occurred in North America. Luckily, this won't be the last that we'll hear from the original series' new sequel as Shout! Factory digivolves the film's first three parts into a Blu-ray, DVD and digital release. The neat part is that folks can look forward to viewing the movies in both English and Japanese.

While a couple of the Digimon titles have been streamed uncut, this might mark the first time people in North America will get to own one of the franchise's titles in its original form. Hell, if these releases do well, I could see this opening the door for more unedited digital monsters goodness, along with seeing the other tri. installments here one day.

Even though I found Digimon tri.'s third part to be a bit disappointing, I'm still on board with the original cast's new adventure. If anything, the upcoming fourth part might change the way how I currently view on the series. 

Last but not least, the first movie version of Digimon tri., Digimon Adventure tri. - Reunion,  hits North America this year. From the looks of it, 2017 might be a great time to be a fan of the franchise.

On that note, is anyone looking forward to owning Digimon Adventure tri.'s first three films?
