The first segment of the film revolves around the first encounter with a digimon and a fight that occurs between their digimon and another. The two kids, Kari and Tai, raise a fast-growing digimon from an egg to a large, dinosaur-like digimon, which escapes from their house and then has an encounter and a battle with a parrot-like digimon.

This infected digimon begins to start eating computer information and data, and the two protagonists attempt to stop the digimon, but fail.

Trivia

Despite Tai being the main character and Kari the secondary in the regular show, Kari is the main character of the film while Tai is the secondary character. This is because Kari provides first person narration and has more screen time and lines than Tai and/or the new Digidestined members. See more »

Goofs

A Lopmon is featured on the cover and poster art of the movie quite prominently, however in the English version of the movie no Lopmon is present. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Kari: [narrating] Who says there's no such things as monsters? You're never quite the same after you meet your first Digimon. My name's Kari. I'm part of a team called the Digidestined. there were only a handful of us at first, but we've added a few members since then. That's me with TK, another one of the DigiDestined. And that's Willis in America. While the rest of us in Japan only had one Digimon, he had twins. And while we had our team to count on, Willis didn't have any human friends...

Alternate Versions

The ABC Family broadcast premiere removed the 4-minute intro with Angela Anaconda before the 20th Century Fox logo sequence, and replaced the Fox Kids logo between the 20th logo sequence and the opening credit sequence with the Saban International logo. 20th Century Fox is owned by the News Corporation in which it and Haim Saban, in 2001, sold what Fox Family became ABC Family, including what Saban Entertainment became BVS Entertainment and what the Fox Kids International channels became Jetix in 2005, to the Walt Disney Company.

User Reviews

Funny, fast paced and packed with action
24 April 2002 | by RirasoraySee all my reviews

For an animation, this film was the best I've ever seen. It had exceptional quality throughout and it actually convinced me to watch the television series. I like the way it spans different time lines and explains the whole story, rather than the Pokemon movie. It entertained me every step of the way with a great sound track, dialogue, and characters. The plot seems rather simple when you first hear what it's actually about, but its modern approach makes it original and likeable. The only problem was, the screenplay was a little too quick, even for people who watch the television show, and I lost track in some parts of the movies; in fact, I had to watch it twice to properly understand the entire film. But, everything else aside, I really liked this film and I'd seriously recommend it to anyone, adults or children. If you think it's just another Pokemon movie, you're wrong.
