==Plot==
 
==Plot==
 
A group of human youths from Earth get transported to a strange dimension called the "Digital World" while they are at summer camp where they discover that they are in a land where digital creatures called "Digimon" dwell. Befriending seven of the Digimon, these youths learn that they have the ability to help their partners digitally evolve (digivolve) into stronger, powerful forms that can combat enemies for a short amount of time. Setting off on their journey, the youths start searching for a way home. While there, they learn that they are the "DigiDestined", chosen young guardians with compatibilities with Digimon, and they are the only hope in defeating an evil digimon that is slowly about to consuming the Digital World.

Plot

A group of human youths from Earth get transported to a strange dimension called the "Digital World" while they are at summer camp where they discover that they are in a land where digital creatures called "Digimon" dwell. Befriending seven of the Digimon, these youths learn that they have the ability to help their partners digitally evolve (digivolve) into stronger, powerful forms that can combat enemies for a short amount of time. Setting off on their journey, the youths start searching for a way home. While there, they learn that they are the "DigiDestined", chosen young guardians with compatibilities with Digimon, and they are the only hope in defeating an evil digimon that is slowly about to consuming the Digital World.

Synopsis

The film opens with a narration (Watson) saying that there is a parallel universe where one day equals one minute on Earth where mysterious creatures dwell called "Digimon". The universe was called the "Digital World". Digimon possess a legendary power where they "ages" and grows up into larger and more powerful forms, it was called "Digivolution". One day, a strange being (that is a manifestation of the remains and hatred of the digimon who failed to digivolve) came to The Digital World from beyond the "Wall of Fire" and its presence caused the Digital World to become warped, throwing it chronology out of sync with the Real World with the help of it's byproducts, The Dark Masters. To defeat this force, a group of human youths from Earth were chosen and brought to the Digital World, successfully destroying the evil being. These youths were known as the "DigiDestined", and their legend was famed throughout the Digital World, with temples erected to their memories, and a prophecy that said a new generation of DigiDestined would arise when the Digital World would need them again. ...

Casting Controversy

When the film was announced, rumors speculated that there would be casting of Caucasian actors in the lead roles caused accusations of whitewashing, especially from fans of the original Japanese franchise. Head producer Drew Gars responded to the criticism stating, "Yes, I get it. But listen, while this is an adaptation of the anime, it's also an American retelling of the anime. The way we're making the film is like Edge of Tomorrow. Edge of Tomorrow was originally based off a Japanese novel called All You Need Is Kill that made into Edge of Tomorrow, with the original story still being used while it was retold in an American way. If you are offended by this, fine I get it. You have the right to be offended even though it's my project. Again, I apologize. I promise even though its different, I promise it to be vey faithful to the source material as possible. And also, to the Internet critics, I'm not bullshiting. Besides, I can hear you. I don't want this to be like Dragonball: Evolution, The Last Airbender and Jem and The Holograms. The problem with those films is that they were made by people who don't understand the source materiel. But I do. I grew up with the anime as a kid and its very dear to my heart. Thank you."

Drew Gars' Conditions

Film producer and screenwriter Drew Gars pitch the idea to both Universal Pictures and Saban Films of making a film adaptation of the anime. But he had some requirements before beginning development on the film.

1. Gars heads the project as the head producer and head screenwriter of the project.

2. Gars gets to choose the running time, the length and film rating.

3. Blumhouse Productions must not be involved with the film's productions, reminding Universal Pictures of both the critical and financial failure of 2015's Jem and the Holograms.

4. Gars request that production of the film to be on location, stating that shooting will take place in the jungle.

5. Gars must instructs the other writers to watch the original anime before writing the film.
