The voice actors for the digital monsters are still the same crew but their human handlers have different voice actors this time to reflect the maturity in the story.

Director of Jormungand and Date a Live II series, Keitaro Motonaga will be helming the movies with creator of Cencoroll, Atsuya Uki on character design and finally Yuuko Kakihara (Heaven’s Lost Property, Chihayafuru 2) doing the series composition. Kouji Wada will be singing OP song “Butter-Fly” and Ayumi Miyazaki will be singing “Brave Heart”.

List of casting are Natsuki Hanae (Tari-Tari, Nagi Asakura), Suzuko Mimori (Btoom, Denpa Kyoshi) and Yoshimasa Hosoya (Akame ga Kill, Aldnoah Zero).

Surely the fans of Digimon can’t wait, and neither can we!
