Digimon Adventure tri. is getting a spin-off theatre production that will be called Super Evolution Stage Digimon Adventure tri. - The Adventure of August 1.

Polygon Magic’s Digimon Adventure tri.:The Adventure of August 1 will run from the August 5 - 13 at Tokyo’s Zepp Blue Theater in Roppongi. The play is based on a side story of the anime film series. Toei Animation will share news on the show’s cast, visuals and ticket information soon.

Digimon Adventure tri. is a six-part anime film series, and sequel to the original Digimon series. The films were first announced in celebration of the show’s 15th anniversary, following the original Digi-Destined teens ten years after the series. Taichi and the gang are nearing the end of high school, learning their place in the world while trying to save it.

Toei Animation has released four films so far with the fifth, titled Digimon Adventure tri.: Union/Symbiosis, airing later this year in Japan. All of the currently released films are available to watch as an episodic series on Animelab.
