Update (19/8): Unfortunately, Nickelodeon made a last minute schedule change, and didn't air the Digimon Adventure tri. movie "Determination" as planned, and has taken Digimon Adventure tri. off the schedule completely for the foreseeable future. Stay tuned for more updates! The schedule change was very last minute, as Nick continued to advertise the premiere and had a on-screen countdown clock up.

Update (21/8): Nickelodeon Sonic's communications team has reportedly confirmed to Anime News India that Digimon Adventure tri., along with other non-locally produced shows, such as Power Rangers and Dinosaur King have been pulled from Sonic's schedules due to poor ratings performances.

Digimon Adventure tri. (Japanese: デジモンアドベンチャーtri. Hepburn: Dejimon Adobenchā Torai) is a Japanese adventure anime film series produced by Toei Animation to celebrating the 15th anniversary of Akiyoshi Hongo's hit Digimon franchise.
