I'm currently studying a degree for Film Production and Cinematography.

Digimon Adventures Tri. has now reached the half-way point, with Digimon Adventures Tri. Confessions making fans everywhere weep as the Digidestined faced their greatest challenge to date, losing their Digimon partners. Agumon, Gabumon, Biyomon, Tentomon, Palmon, Gomamon, Patamon and Tailmon (Gatomon) were all reformatted and lost all their memories of their past adventures with the Digidestined. The fourth anniversary movie, Digimon Adventures Tri. Loss, set for release next month has released their first teaser trailer.

The trailer began where the last movie left off, reminding us of the shocking revelation made at the films conclusion. We witnessed the suspicious Maki meeting with an evil looking Gennai. This suggests we will discover early on in the film what Maki has been upto and how Gennai is seemingly working for the other side suddenly. Having once being the Digidestined's greatest ally, Gennai now seems set to be their toughest foe. It is also shown the Digidestined will simply be honest to their now reformatted Digimon partners on why they are in the Digital world. However, it appears Sora is set for some difficulty reconnecting with her partner Digimon, Biyomon, who is questioning what a comrade is.

Sora and Biyomon have always had an extremely close bond, and with the pair tapping into Sora's power of love to give Biyomon her ability to digivolve into the might Garudamon, Sora is surely set for heartbreak as her partner rejects her. This does indicate that Sora's pure love for her partner will be what unlocks Biyomon's ability to reach her Mega Level of Hououmon, however Sora may have to consider her own feeling first before the bridges can be mended with Biyomon. Sora is currently trapped in the love-triangle with Taichi (Tai) and Yamato (Matt). While Sora is set for a tough time reconnecting with Biyomon, the other Digidestined seem set for an easier time reforming their bonds and holding onto the memories for their Digimon partners.

The trailer also confirms another questions fans have had ever since the first teaser poster was released, featuring Hououmon and Machinedramon. The question being; 'Will all the Dark Masters return in the movie?' Well the short answer would be, yes! Or at least one of the others will be in the movie. During the trailer Wargreymon and Metalgarurumon can be seen engaging in battle with Metalseadramon.

While Puppetmon and Piedmon are not shown in the trailer, it can be assumed they will be appearing in the film series at some point. Perhaps being saved for movie five, with just Metalseadramon and Machinedramon used in the fourth movie. However, it is more likely all four will appear in Digimon Adventures Tri. Loss, and the Digidestined will have to defeat them once again. The Trailer also revealed that Meiko will rejoin the other Digidestined and reunite with her partner Digimon, Meicoomon.

The trailer does not reveal how the pair will be reunited, but it was made clear at the end of the previous film that Meiko was going to try and get to the Digital World. It has also been reported that Meicoomon could in fact still have all of its memories. If this is true, it raises the question of how? As it was trapped in the zone for reformatting like all the other Digimon. However, the truth about the mysterious virus Meicoomon can infect other Digimon with has many mysteries yet to be resolved, and perhaps its memory retention is related to the virus. Perhaps the most shocking reveal from the trailers is the Mega Level evolution of Patamon, Serraphimon.

While it is only a glimpse for a fraction of a second, any Digimon fan would recognize the iconic yellow four-point star against the blue face of Seraphimon. With this having been revealed, the question is 'when will Gatomon receive her Mega Level in the film series?' It had been assumed by fans that Sora would be the only one to debut her Digimon's Mega Level in the movie, as Koushiro (Izzy) and Tentomon featured in the last movie. This would have left Patamon and Gatomon to feature their Mega Level forms together in movie number five, as the pair have always been partners.

The possible answer for this is how Kari was possessed by some force in the previous movie and is set for her own personal journey to discover who was controlling her. We could even see Wizardmon return as he, like all other Digimon, will have been reborn in the reformatting. Perhaps the Dark Ocean is call Kari back and Daemon is ready to be released from his prison? All of those questions will be hopefully answered in movie five.

What have your thoughts been on the Digimon Adventures Tri. movie series?
