There is going to be a lot of Digimon goodness from Discotek, the company known for saving old licenses. During Okaton this past weekend, Discotek revealed it will be coming out with a “Digimon the Movies Collection 1″ set, though an exact release date has yet to be revealed. The set contains Digimon Adventure (a.k.a. Digimon Adventure: Born of Koromon), Digimon Adventure Our War Game! (a.k.a. Digimon: Our War Game), Digimon Adventure 02: Digimon Hurricane Touchdown!! (a.k.a. Digimon: The Golden Digimentals), and, last but not least, Digimon: The Movie.
Digimon Adventure, Digimon Adventure Our War Game!, and Digimon Adventure 02: Digimon Hurricane Touchdown!! will all have new dubs and will be uncut. Speaking about the dubs, Discotek explained, “Anyone who we could find & could come back is here. When needed, new actors were cast based on energy & giving a voice & vibe that fits what you heard almost 25 years ago.”
Digimon: The Movie has its original dub and has been remastered for HD. People who prefer to watch in Japanese additionally have the option of watching these movies subtitled.
The new dubbing was done by Sound Cadence Studios.
