The Digimon Adventure series is one of the most popular franchises, following the adventures of the “Digi-Destined” as they attempted to navigate the digital world. With an anime series to its name as well as several movies, its been awhile since we’ve visited this world of youngsters attempting to save the world with their Digimon partners at their side (latest release: Digimon Adventure Tri, with 6 movies).
The Digimon series was originally conceived by Bandai, Toei Animation, and WiZ in 1997 as a way to capitalize on the virtual pet craze sparked by Tamagotchi.
