The first chapter of Digimon Adventure Tri, the series that returns the original Digidestined to the spotlight, is coming to the U.S. this fall with a special one-night only event across more than 300 cities. Following the one-night event, a traditional theatrical release in major cities will take place.

Toei Animation and Eleven Arts are partnering to bring Digimon Adventure Tri - Chapter 1: Reunion to theaters on Sept. 15.

“ We are extremely proud to announce our first time partnership with Toei Animation. We have been huge fans of Toei and the Digimon series for years, and are thrilled to participate in the release of this true hallmark of Japanese Anime. We cannot wait to share a theatrical experience that will be sure to satisfy audiences across North America,” said Eleven Arts CEO, Ko Mori.

“We are excited to partner with Eleven Arts to share this exciting title with audiences across the U.S.,” said Masayuki Endo, President of Toei Animation Inc. “American viewers have been eagerly awaiting the next chapter in the Digimon saga for nearly sixteen years, and we’re delighted to have produced this English language version for theaters, giving it the cinematic treatment our fans deserve.”

Dates for the general theatrical release or the cities that will have the screenings were not given and we’ll update as soon as we learn more.

In Japan, Digimon Adventure Tri was released in theaters in multiple parts. The first chapter was released in 2015, with the second chapter releasing earlier this year and the third chapter set to debut in September.

The rest of the world can only watch the return of the Digidestined through Crunchyroll , a streaming service specializing in anime.
