Digimon Adventure 2020

Summary

Digimon’s 1990s classic anime still defines the franchise, making it perfect for a remake that fixes the mistakes made in the 2020 remake.

Digimon Adventure 2020 disappointed fans because it rushed through the plots, lacking character development, and failing to impress new audiences.

A successful Digimon remake must slow down the plot, delve deeper into the Digital World, utilize isekai elements, and update the narrative.

More so than its rival property from Nintendo and GameFreak, Digimon is a franchise that’s still mostly defined by its classic incarnation from the 1990s. The original Digimon Adventure is considered a classic to a generation of anime fans, and it was unintentionally prescient in several ways.

This dual sense of both nostalgia and modern relevance makes the series a prime candidate for a worthwhile remake. Digimon Adventure previously received a remake, but this take on the material left many fans wanting.

At the same time, anime remakes have become an increasingly popular trend, especially for shows that came out in the 1980s and 1990s. Unlike Pokémon, Digimon has been unable to truly move beyond the original series, so starting fresh from that era might be necessary.
