The passing of singer Koji Wada left a huge hole not only in the Japanese music industry, but also for Digimon. The singer performed the original anime’s iconic theme song, “butter-fly”, as well as other OP songs. But with the sixth and final film, “Our Future,” coming up, the staff revealed that an all-star cast of singers will be performing the anime’s ED song. And yes, it will be “butter-fly,” and its new title is  “Butter-Fly ~tri.Version~.”

The theme song singers will include the following artists, and they’re pretty impressive:

And to make this even more impressive, the ED song will also include a recording of the late Koji Wada as well. The film will have a theatrical screening in Japan. They will also be selling limited edition first press Blu-ray releases for the film on the theatres as well. As for the rest of the world, it will have an online streaming release, much like the previous films.
