The film spawned an anime TV series of the same name aired a day later. The show was directed by Hiroyuki Kakudou (Gegege no Kitarō 1996, Yu-Gi-Oh!) at Toei Animation, with series creator Akiyoshi Hongo and Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru providing character designs. Satoru Nishizono (Duel Masters, Welcome to the NHK) was in charge of series composition.
The franchise wrapped up the six-film Digimon Adventure tri. series on May 5, 2018. The project originally began in November 2015. Keitaro Motonaga (Magic Knight Rayearth OVA, Jormungand) was tapped to direct the films, while Yuuko Kakihara (Heaven’s Lost Property) served as script supervisor. Character designs were provided by Atsuya Uki (Cencoroll).
