Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning (2023) Movie Script

["Bolero" by Maurice Ravel
[crowd gasping]
[explosive bursts]
[explosive bursts]
[in German]
What is all of this?!
[phone alerts beeping]
Hey, what's this?
[explosive bursts]
[electronic beeping]
[music ends]
[Lui] Ukkomon!
[news announcer]
The massive object,
which has
been identified as a Digi-Egg,
an object of Digimon origin,
even now continues to hover
above Tokyo Tower, where it
first appeared a week ago.
The message that it's apparently
broadcasting has been seen
by countless numbers
of people all around the world,
but so far, no one is completely
certain of just what it means,
as the government
remains on heightened alert...
Oh, look! It's Tai!
A whole week's passed,
and that
thing's still floating up there.
[Yolei] It's been really
overwhelming for Izzy.
He keeps getting called
into all these interviews
and brainstorming sessions.
I can never get
a hold of him anymore.
I saw him on
another television show
just before this one.
Well, he is the world's
foremost expert on Digimon.
Judging by the look of things,
I doubt heeven has time
to sleep.
-Yeah, right.
When I tried calling Tai
ge got all upset with me
and told me that he's way
too busy for small talk.
What? That's not like
I don't know.
Humans are always changing.
-That's what I always say.
-What do we think?
Any theories as to why
that Digi-Egg appeared?
If Izzy hasn't been
able to figure it out,
then I doubt we'll be able to.
You know what'll happen?
The longer it's up there,
the less attention it'll get.
People will just get used to it.
After all...
Forget about that.
It's time for a bowl
of tasty goodness.
Satisfaction guaranteed.
Let the eating begin.
[all] Hmm!
It smells yummy!
Looks delicious, doesn't it,
You did a surprisingly good job.
It seems like you've
really upped your game.
-What's that mean?
-Breaking news...
A man has been spotted climbing
up Tokyo Tower's antenna.
How dangerous.
He has no wings.
If he falls, he's done for.
-Is this some kind of stunt?
-You know what they say.
Turn up the heat
and watch the weirdos come out.
Wait. They say that?
You only think it's hot
because you're making ramen.
Nothing's better
than a hot kitchen.
Hey, wait a sec.
Look what's in his hand.
A Digivice?
Then that means...
That guy's a DigiDestined?
[breathing hard]
[Lui] Why would you show up
again now?
After everything, why now?
You're a...Digimon?
That was close.
-Are you all right?
-Were you hurt when you fell?
You didn't get scraped up,
did you?
If it hurts anywhere,
just tell us.
Yeah. Don't be a hero.
I think it's best you go
to the hospital.
Well, that's a lot of Digimon
and their partners.
Hey, just a tip.
When someone saves your life,
usually the first
thing you do is say thanks.
I don't recall asking anyone
to do anything.
That's really
how you're gonna play it?
You know, we sacrifice perfectly
good ramen to rescue you.
If that's how you're gonna be,
you can pay for it.
-Just give it a rest, Davis.
-[Davis] Sorry, Yolei!
So, what were you doing
up there?
Do you have some connection
to that Digi-Egg?
It has nothing
to do with any of you.
Well, that's not really true,
You're a DigiDestined too,
aren't you?
[Lui] Destined.
That's one way of putting it.
That's a Digivice in your hand.
So where's your Digimon?
I don't have a Digimon. Okay?
Huh? But then...
[Lui] If you must know,
I don't have a Digimon.
I don't, because I killed
the Digimon who was my partner.
Hey, listen, just who are you?
Who am I?
I guess I was the first.
The first person to form
a partnership with the Digimon.
Huh? Seriously? Is that true?
You're the first DigiDestined?
So long.
Thanks for saving me.
[Yoeli] Wait a minute.
You can't drop a bomb like
that and then just say goodbye.
Now get back here
and tell us more about yourself
and that Digi-Egg.
You got it.
I won't let you go any further.
You poor thing.
You bark out an order
and he obediently
does whatever he's told.
Don't you dare imply
that Hawkmon is my slave.
She's right.
I am doing
this because I want to.
I'm sure you are.
And I bet it makes you happy.
Get to the point already.
Tell us what's going on.
You know, the message
that played all over the world?
The one that appeared when
the Digi-Egg first showed up?
It's completely wrong.
Humans and Digimon aren't meant
to be together.
When they are they only make
each other miserable.
Huh, what are you talking about?
We make each other miserable?
Come on.
What kind of nonsense is that?
That's utterly ridiculous.
Yeah. That's right.
My bond with Cody's
ironclad and unshakable.
Your bond?
That's what you call it when you
take advantage of each other?
Those kinds
of bonds aren't real.
Every human being getting
a partner Digimon.
I'd call that hell on earth.
Hey, just hold on one moment.
Get off me!
Your eye.
Hey. What's that?
What the heck's going on?
-[sirens blaring]
[man on loudspeaker]
What are you doing in there?
Come out now!
Oh, man. How'd they find us?
Are you kidding me?
Someone just climbed up Tokyo
Tower illegally and fell off.
And then Stingmon caught him.
I'd be more amazed
if they hadn't found us.
-We should get out of here.
-You think?
Oh, no you don't.
You're not sneaking off.
Let go of me!
I told you it has nothing
to do with you.
You bet it does.
We're plenty involved.
You got that?
it's time you
started talking.
All right. My name is Lui.
And as you've already
figured out,
there's a connection between
this eye and that Digi-Egg.
I'd hoped
to make contact with it.
I thought that maybe I
could straighten things out.
So you're saying that
the Digi-Egg might be your...
What do you mean
by straighten out?
[Davis] So that's it!
In other words,
you were climbing Tokyo Tower
so that you could have a word
or twelve
with that egg up there.
You know what?
I think you're
right on the money.
You've got a lot of spirit,
I like that.
All right,
then we'll help you out.
Davis, we don't
even know this guy.
-[Davis] We do now...
-Here we go again...
...so let's get going.
-...as usual.
[Ken] I'm just saying,
we need to hear the whole story.
Come on, man,
don't be a stick in the mud.
[Veemon] No one likes mud.
Look, if you really want
to get to the Digi-Egg,
we'll take you up there.
What? Really?
Sure. Just leave it to us.

V-mon, Digivolve two!
Wormmon, Digivolve two!
DNA Digivolve two!
You think doing it
this way is a bit too flashy?
It's fine.
No one will notice
if we do it quickly.
Come on, let's do it already.
[Paildoramon] Right!
[Patamon] How cool!
Must they be so brazen
about this?
The cops are probably
ready and waiting.
-[Ken] So what now?
-[Lui] I don't know.
You don't know?
Can't you talk
to it with your Digivice?
I tried doing that before when I
was climbing the tower,
but I didn't get any response.
Oh, man.
So we formed Paildoramon
for nothing?
[loud explosive bursts]
-No, wait!
[grunting and groaning]
[Davis] Where are we?
Hey! Hold on.
Where's the Digi-Egg?
And the tower?
Hey, Ken, look over there.
What is it?
Aren't those two...
The one with the spiky hair
looks a little familiar.
Anyway, isn't this Hikarigaoka?
Hey, what's going on with you?
No way.
It can't be.
What's the big deal?
Do you know them or something?
It's me.
That's my mother
and that's me as a child.
[mother] I need to make
something for Lui to eat.
And then get his bath ready.
Then change Dear's clothes
and diaper and clean him up.
This oxygen should
be okay for now.
We're home now.
[low electronic hum]
So, Mom and I just got
back from doing some shopping.
I hope you get better soon
so that you can come next time.
[mother] Lui!
I've told you not to come
in here with your father
without my permission.
Oh, how many times do I have
to tell you?
If you touch that machine wrong,
it could break
and then your father will die.
I'm so sorry.
I'm going to make some dinner,
so go occupy yourself.
Watch TV or something.
[Lui] Okay.
[TV host] Hey, everybody.
Today I'd like to introduce
someone very special to you.
This is my friend...
Lui! Dinner is ready.
I made your favorite.
Hamburger steak.
Oh... oh...
I'm going to need your help,
So when I ask what your favorite
game is...
What do you think you're doing?
I've just been watching TV.
Who told you to keep
watching till you wet yourself?
How old are you, anyway?
Stay out there
till I clean this up.
Mom, please, no!
Please, open up!
I'm sorry! I won't do it again!
Please! Mom, please! I'm sorry!
Some mother she is!
That's it, I'm going over there!
I'm gonna give her
a piece of my mind.
[Ken] Davis, stop!
If we really have gone
back into the past,
we can end up changing
the future if we interfere.
So what? We can't ignore that.
[Lui] Forget it.
This is my past.
I'm not asking you
to do anything about it.
[wind blowing]
[Young Lui] Mom...
I'm sorry.
I won't wet myself again,
I swear.
I turned four today.
I'm a big boy now.
I promise I won't do it again.
Today's my birthday.
I'm a big boy now.
It's so cold.
[shell crackling]
Don't make that promise!
What just happened?
Are you okay?
What about...
That was close.
Thanks for saving us.
[wings fluttering]
-Nice catch there, Patemon.
-Are you okay?
-You did really great.
I'm sorry to worry you.
We were all so scared
when we saw you fall.
Good thing you passed
right through the Digi-Egg.
and nothing happened.
We went back in time.
We traveled to, like,
15 years ago.
Time travel is certainly what
it seemed like.
We aren't certain, but it did
feel like we spent
over two hours inside
the Digi-Egg.
But Ken, it wasn't that long.
We just saw you guys fall.
From start to finish.
It only took a few seconds.
From where we stood,
it looked like you fell right
through the Digi-Egg.
[thunder rumbling]
How'd they find us now?
Paildoramon flying up there,
you falling through the
Angemon and the others
rescuing you,
I'd be more amazed
if they hadn't found us.
Hardly the best laid plans,
I'm afraid.
Oh, shut up!
Did any of you try to stop me,
Just calm down, Davis.
Guys, enough talking!
For now, just run!
Scatter, everyone!
-[Yolei] Digi-Digi.
-[Hawkmon] Mon-Mon.
As usual, the best solution we
have is this.
Most definitely.
[all chuckling]
But isn't it kind of
to do this at our age?
I think I can safely say
we're a little past those
kind of reenactments.
Well, anything worth doing
is worth doing right!
let's hear it for the Hyper
Multi Computer Club president.
Thanks for setting us
up with this awesome room.
Actually, I'm just an alum now.
I asked the current president
for permission to use it.
Same difference.
Let's get started.
Yes, yes. Let's.
[Ken] Let's go over everything
we know so far.
A week ago,
the Digi-Egg suddenly appeared
in the sky above Tokyo Tower.
-And then...
...it sent
out that mysterious
"May everyone in the world have
a Digimon" message
and then did absolutely
nothing more.
For the entire week,
the Digi-Egg was simply
floating there,
unmoving and taking no action.
But then someone
showed up on the scene.
The first human to make
contact with the Digimon
since the Hikarigaoka incident.
Also the first
individual to ever become
partners with a Digimon.
The very first DigiDestined
in human history.
While Davis and Ken were inside
that Digi-Egg, they witnessed
the moment Lui became
partnered with his Digimon.
[Hawkmon] And its name is
That's whose Digi-Egg is
floating up there in the sky.
So then the obvious question is
why didUkkomondecide
to show up now?
Not to mention that you
told us you had killed him.
Ukkomon is
a special kind of Digimon.
He can make people's
wishes come true.
You realize that sounds
completely bonkers, right?
-How does he do that?
-[Lui] Who knows?
All he told me is
that he had some kind of a link
to this great being.
A great being?
You mean like some kind
of Digimon deity or something?
Could it be homeostasis?
Or something unique
that only worked for the first
human Digimon partnership?
I mean,
that is something special.
How... how interesting.
You don't really
understand this, do you?
[both chuckling]
Well, if he was really
able to grant any wish,
what was
it you asked for back then?
What did Ukkomon give you?
Look! It's snowing!
[Davis] No wonder it's so cold.
[Yolei] You only say that
'cause you're always
in shorts and tee shirts.
-[Davis] Yeah, Digi's get hot.
-[Lui] What I...
What I wished for.
[wind blowing]
Oh, it's so warm.
What's your name?
My name's Lui.
Today's my birthday.
I just turned four.
Are you all alone?
I'm all alone too.
Sad, huh?
It's awful being alone.
[Digi-Egg] Alone...
Yeah, I wish I had some friends.
[Digi-Egg] Friends?
Friends who cared for me,
who would be kind to me.
We'd always be together
and they'd always protect me.
[Digi-Egg] Hide, protect.
I bet it'd be fun
to have lots of friends.
You know what?
When I'm all grown up,
I'm going to make friends
with people all over the world.
[Digi-Egg] All over the world.
[gentle music playing]
It's nice to meet you, Lui.
My name is Ukkomon.
I'm going
to be your friend forever.
[Young Lui] Yoko-mon?
It's Ukko.
But more importantly...
Happy birthday, Lui.
What is that?
A special cake I made
out of snow for you!
Wow, a cake!
And it's so cold too!
You don't like it like that?
Too cold.
What's this? Is it a toy?
[Ukkomon] It's a Digivice.
It's the bond between us.
It's my very first present
to you.
Oh, wow, a present.
I'm so happy.
This is my first present ever.
Thank you so much.
Glad you like it.
And now I'm going to keep
on celebrating your birthday.
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday dear Lui...
What's with all
the noise out here?
Why can't you ever keep
your promises to me?
I feel like I'm always having
to remind you
what you're supposed to do.
I mean, I am going to
have to put--
Oh, I bet you're cold.
Are you cold, Lui?
Come warm up inside.
So you forgive me?
Yes, of course I do.
Would it be okay
if Ukkomon came inside, too?
-He's my friend.
Come on.
Before you catch a cold.
I'll heat up some milk
for you right away.
Come on, Ukkomon.
Let's go!
This is it.
This is where I live.
Hey, Lui?
I'm your friend.
So from here on out,
I'm always going to protect you.
No bad or sad stuff
will get you.
I'll protect you from all of it.
Because we're friends.
We are friends! That's right!
Would you be happier
with even more friends?
Yeah, I want lots of 'em.
Okay, then!
By the next time your
birthday comes around,
I'll make sure that you have
some more.
Yeah. Awesome.
But my birthday only comes
once every four years.
I was born on kind
of a weird day.
No problem.
I'll just have to give
you an incredible present
to make up for it.
I'll work really hard on it.
[laughing together]
So all that happened afterward?
[Kari] You wished for friends?
That's what you
asked Ukkomon for?
From what you told us,
it seems like you owe
Ukkomon your life.
I was worried about how
that scene turned out.
Good thing he rescued you
that night, huh?
But it doesn't really fit with
what's going on now.
Based on your story,
wasn't what happened
to you a really good thing?
Wait, that isn't
where the story ends, is it?
Can you share
the rest of it with us?
After that day my whole life
did a complete 180.
Dad woke up.
Ukkomon protected me
from bullies.
Going to school was
actually fun.
I had everything
that I'd ever wanted.
He helped save me
from bad things.
We grew closer as a family.
We were really happy together.
[Ukkomon] Happy birthday
to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday, dear Lui
Happy birthday to you
It's your second true birthday
so that makes you eight.
Thanks so much, Ukkomon.
That's how it is
when you're born in a leap year.
-A leap year?
-Once every four years.
February gets an extra day.
Oh, that's the day your
birthday falls on.
So let's have a happy birthday
with four years of waiting.
Hey, Lui... I have to tell you
I owe you a big apology.
What for?
For your birthday present.
I was supposed to make a bunch
of new friends so that you
could hang out with them, but it
looks like they're all busy,
so I couldn't bring them here.
Oh, that's okay.
But just hold on.
I brought Mom and Dad and some
friends from the neighborhood.
[all] Happy birthday, Lui.
Time to open presents.
You guys, thanks so much.
[Ukkomon] By the time your next
birthday arrives,
I'll bring over lots of friends
who are just like you.
Oh... That sounds good,
I can't wait.
Ukkomon, I know you can make
me friends all over the world.
Yeah, you bet I can.
And I'm sure you'll all
get along the same way you
and I do, Lui.
'Cause they'll be just like us.
Digimon and children who bonded
with each other.
There aren't all that many just
yet, but I know
that someday they're sure to be
a whole lot of them,
and they'll come from
all over the world.
I'll make sure they
become your friends.
The Digivice is the mark
of our friendship.
Wow! So cool!
You can do anything, Ukkomon.
Mm-hmm. That's right.
It's all because I'm connected
to a great being.
Hey! Let's celebrate!
Hurry up and blow out
all the candles!
Thanks for everything, Ukkomon.
You make me so happy.
Mom and dad are here
to celebrate my birthday
and so are my friends.
And more than anything,
you're here and always will be,
-[Ukkomon] Go on. Hurry! Hurry!
-[Young Lui] Sure.
[inhales deeply]
[Yolei] Hang on. What are you
Do you mean Ukkomon's the one
responsible for the partnerships
between humans and Digimon?
But that's...
Yeah, that's not what we've
been led to believe.
And yet Lui just said
that Ukkomon
created the DigiDestined
to grant his wish for friends.
But how?
I had to go get Gatomon.
No one put us together.
Yeah, that's right.
Whatever it is that creates
a bond between a Digimon
and a human,
that's a mystery to me.
Is it this Digivice?
A chance encounter or Ukkomon
really the one behind it?
If he really is
capable of such a thing,
Ukkomon may be the most
exceptional Digimon ever.
I told you.
Ukkomon is a Digimon who's
able to make
anybody's wishes come true.
Back then,
I wished to have a friend
who would always be with me.
Someone who would protect me.
And I wanted
to be friends with people
who lived all over the world.
You're telling us that wish
is the foundation for all
Digimon human partnerships?
No way.
You're saying friendships
between Digimon
and humans are phony?
That someone made them up?
Calm down, Davis.
It might be hard to hear,
but we can't deny
the possibility outright.
Wait. Huh?
There are more DigiDestined
appearing every year.
Is it really
that hard to believe that there
could be some bigger power
at work behind all this?
And even if you
flat out deny it.
Don't you want
to know more about it?
[Lui] Do you really believe it?
You think unconditional
friendship truly exists?
Something as incredible as that.
How could it be real?
Huh? Are you kidding?
-Of course it's real.
-[Veemon] What's your deal?
Why are you just sitting
there brooding
over what friendship is?
Hey, Davis.
You see,
that's what friendship is.
[Ken] The relationships we share
with our Digimon
didn't just automatically
We've had misunderstandings
and arguments.
Facing them is how we have come
to trust in each other.
You got that right.
The bonds between us didn't
simply arrive pre-made.
We've built them together.
It doesn't matter.
No matter how strong your
friendship may be, the truth is
that you never really know what
the other person is thinking.
Isn't that right?
Because Ukkomon
misunderstood me...
and what would
really make me happy.
[news broadcaster] We still
don't have an answer
as to what the giant creatures
that suddenly appeared
in Odaiba might be.
We'll continue to monitor
the situation closely
until we're able to find
an answer.
The footage you're seeing
now was shot at the scene
a short time ago.
We've brought in a specialist
to share their thoughts on these
rather unusual events.
Oh! Look, look!
-Those are your friends, Lui.
Let me start by saying
that while...
[Ukkomon] You see?
The Digimon are doing battle
to protect the children.
They fight
so the children don't have to.
They're even willing
to die doing it.
Why would they do that?
Because it's
what you wanted, Lui.
You said you wanted to have
friends who'd protect you.
-Thank you for coming in today.
So now you do.
Those are the kind
of friends I'm going
to keep making for you.
...gaining a full understanding
of it now.
But that isn't--
That's not what I meant.
[door opens and closes]
[father] I'm home!
Welcome back.
So, how did things go?
Mom? Dad!
What's wrong? Hey!
Get up!
What's the matter with you guys?
Answer me.
[Ukkomon] You'll have to try
harder, mom and dad.
Or else Lui will be sad,
What are you doing, Ukkomon?
Hi, Lui.
I just got home, son.
Welcome back.
Lui, your father's home
from work now.
All better.
What is this?
What have you done?
I'm making it so they're nice
to you so that you can be happy.
-What's wrong?
You have to stop this.
But why?
Mom and Dad are
being so kind to you.
Doesn't it make you
happy to be with them?
[Ukkomon giggles]
It's okay.
You can do this until you
feel better, if you want.
I don't want you to be sad.
I really hate
to see you like that.
I just want you to smile.
That's why I'm always trying to
think of ways to cheer you up.
All I want is to make you happy.
Are you kidding?
Because of you
my mom and dad are...
[Ukkomon] They're so much better
now. Don't you agree?
You love them the way they
are now, right?
[Young Lui] Because of what
you've done children are--
Digimon are
fighting each other.
I've made lots of children
like you and me.
It's what you wanted the most.
You said you
wanted true friends.
Ones who'd always be with you
and protect you.
Lui, the whole reason I'm here
is for your happiness.
That's it.
Baseball? Great!
Let's play.
You're really going out to play
at this late hour, Lui?
Are you sure?
[mother] Let's stay inside,
Now go and wash your hands.
You too, Ukkomon.
We're just about
ready to have dinner.
It's your favorite, Lui.
Hamburger steak.
[Young Lui] I can't do this
[Ukkomon] Hmm?
Take that and this!
[Lui groans]
[Ukkomon] Lui!
Lui! You okay? Lui?
What do I do? What do I do?
Wait, I know.
I'll just give you my eye.
Now you'll be just fine.
[Lui breathing heavily]
[Lui] What?
Why do you do things like this?
Now it's just like...
Oh, good!
Now you're able to see again.
I know that as long as
I'm with you,
you're sure to be just fine!
I'll do anything
if it makes you happy.
Anything at all.
-[Young Lui] But I'm not happy.
-[Ukkomon] Huh?
Can't you see?
I've never been
less happy than right now.
How would any
of this make me happy?
Just think about it
for a second.
It's so messed up.
It's a horror show.
I don't want any of this!
I never asked you to do this
for me!
You don't understand me.
You don't know
the first thing about me.
But you and I are...
[Ukkomon crying]
What a sad story.
It's so heartbreaking.
I feel bad for poor Ukkomon.
I mean,
he was always thinking of you.
Everything that he did was
to try to help you.
He made more DigiDestined so
that you wouldn't feel lonely.
And then he even gave you
his eye to replace yours.
[Lui] So whatever he does
is fine
as long as he's thinking of me.
Yeah, he created all those
Digimon partnerships,
but in the end, I haven't become
friends with any of them.
Not to mention
what he did to my parents.
Anyway you look at it,
what Ukkomon did
was just plain wrong.
[Digimons] Mmm.
[Digimons] Mmm.
So what happened
after Ukkomon disappeared?
[Lui] I moved in with some
relatives. Now I live alone.
What is Ukkomon been
doing all this time?
Don't know. Honestly, I thought
that I'd killed him.
Serving me was his
whole reason for living.
So if I took that away,
I figured what purpose
would he have left?
Then why, after all this time,
did he decide to show up here
as that huge Digi-Egg?
Hey, Lui, with Ukkomon,
did you really--
[all gasping]
[electronic music]
What the heck?
[Yolei] It's the same message
that played
when the Digi-Egg
first appeared.
[crowd murmuring]
[woman] Oh, again?
[electronic roar]
[Ken] The Digi-Egg.
It's hatching.
[crowd gasping]
[Lui] So that's...
[Yolei] Ukkomon.
But why? I don't get why.
Are you okay?
[Ukkomon] Happy birthday
To you
Happy birthday
To you
Happy birthday
Dear Lui
Happy birthday
To you
It's my birthday.
Which means this is supposed
to be a birthday present for me.
Then, all those Digi-Eggs that
have appeared up there...
[Hawkmon] Are they intended to
be used to force partnerships
between Digimon
and people all over the world?
[Patamon] No way.
[Wormmon] What about how
the Digimon
and all those people feel
about it?
It's wrong to try
to force them into it.
Also there are 7 billion people
in the world.
If they all got partner
There would be
chaos all over the globe.
It could be worse than
we could even imagine.
We gotta stop this!
For every human around the world
and for the Digimon too.
-[Gatomon] Let's do this, Kari!
Hold on.
-What are we waiting for, T.K.?
-Let's just think for a sec.
We need to consider what we
know about Ukkomon's abilities.
If he really is the one
responsible for the partnerships
between people and Digimon,
and if we fight him,
and were able to defeat him,
then our bonds with our
Digimon would cease to exist.
Our bonds?
Yours and mine too?
[all gasping]
Even so,
we shouldn't be thinking
about ourselves right now.
We have to do something
about this or the whole world
will suffer.
You do understand that,
don't you, T.K.?
Yeah, of course.
I get it, but...
And besides that, I believe in
my bond with Gatomon.
Ukkomon's power didn't build it.
We did.
That's right.
Yeah, I understand all of that.
But the thing is, we aren't
the only DigiDestined anymore.
Izzy's showing me the figures.
There's a lot more DigiDestined.
Apparently, every single year,
the number of us doubles.
I've heard that too.
It's estimated that there
are sixty thousand of us now.
Sixty thousand?
If we defeat Ukkomon
and break those bonds,
what'll those sixty thousand
people do?
All of them are going
to be really sad.
Yeah, maybe.
But we can't just turn our
backs on 7 billion people.
We have to defeat Ukkomon.
Uh-huh. Cody's right.
Yeah, I guess.
Defeating him
does seem like our only option.
Look, I understand that we have
to save everyone we can.
I do.
But still,
your bond with your Digimon.
Isn't that something
special that's worth protecting?
There's a good argument
for fighting,
but is it the best choice?
Perhaps there's some way
to do both.
I'm sure
that we can think of one.
We don't have the time.
All right, we'll fight then.
If there's a solution out there,
you will definitely find it.
Don't give up on us, Ken.
Let's all think on it.
I know we can figure this out.
Thanks, Yolei.
Hey, Davis?
-What's up?
-Being with me is...
-Is fun, right?
[Davis] Want to make ramen
[Veemon ] Let's make it
We'll do the prep
when we get home.
And double the pork bone broth.
So you do get it.
How many conversations
do you think we've had?
-And that makes us...
-A good team.
[Davis] Yeah.
[together] 'Cause we can make
great ramen.
[Ken] I still don't understand.
Why did we go to the past?
-[Yolei] Huh?
When we all fell into
the Digi-Egg,
why did we go back to the day
when Lui and Ukkomon first met?
I think we were sent
there on purpose.
Hmm. Well, if it wasn't just
a coincidence...
-Hey, Hawkmon.
-[Hawkmon] Right here!
[Yolei] That's it!
See that?
After Lui's eye glowed earlier,
the Digi-Egg lit up like it was
and then an invisible tentacle
reached out.
It's like Ukkomon
sent Lui an invitation.
[snapping finger]
You see, Ukkomon
deliberately brought Lui
into the Digi-Egg earlier.
So the key to stopping
Ukkomon is Lui.
Hey, Lui,
don't run away from Ukkomon.
You should talk to him.
That's probably why he's here.
[Lui] I have nothing to say
to him.
He just does whatever he wants,
no matter what I say.
You're wrong.
This all started
because of what you said.
Because of your wish.
What do you really
know about him?
Do you know what kind of stuff
he likes or what he dislikes?
-Any of that?
-What he likes?
Back when you were a kid,
he was trying to understand you.
He obviously cares
about you a lot.
Maybe he went
about it the wrong way.
But didn't he want you
to be happy?
He's been trying to figure out
what you really want
this whole time.
No, you don't get it.
He never even bothered trying
to listen to me.
If he had, you wouldn't have
done what he did to my parents.
Or gave me this eye.
A Digimon partnership shouldn't
just be one-sided.
Digimon are just like us.
They're alive.
They have their own thoughts
and feelings.
You have to meet one another in
the middle and try to see things
from each other's perspective.
That's the way Ken and I do it.
We see each other for who we
really are.
Even now Ukkomon
wants to talk to you.
That's why he took
you into the past.
The only one
who can reach out to Ukkomon
and stop him is you.
Go talk to him. Make this right.
Let's go.
Please take me up there
so I can go see Ukkomon.
Sure you got it, Lui.
[Lui] I'll talk to him.
Okay, guys, let's go.
[together] All right.
V-Mon! Wormmon! Hawkmon!
V-mon! Stingmon!
Aquilomon! Angemon!
Ankyloman! Angewomon!
Right. Let's go.
DNA Digivolve two!
Paildoramon! DNA Digivolve two!

Lui, go on and see Ukkomon!
And say what you have to say!

And go!
Watch out! Incoming!
[Ankylomon] Take that!
-We made it!
-Here come more.
So many. Too many.
Thanks, Aquilamon!
Ankylomon! Yeah!
Hey, T.K.!
Now let's do this.
DNA Digivolve two!
Let's DNA Digivolve, Tailmon!
All right!
Kari, let's go!
[together] DNA Digivolve two!
Now, mode change! Let's go!
Imperialdramon! Mode change!
Fighter mode!
Shakkoumon! Silphymon!
[Gatomon] Hurry!
Got it.
[fighter yell]
-Nice! Now pull!
-Now, Lui!
-It's time. Go!
Yeah. Bullseye!
[Luis] This is...
Just let go.
Talk things out with Ukkomon.
Don't do it that way.
Trying to do it
that way won't work.
Don't rely on Ukkomon
for everything.
Hey, Ukkomon!
I came here to talk to you.
[Ken] The attack has stopped.
You got this, Lui.
I believe in you.
Well, that's a surprise.
I'm not used to hearing you be
so calm like that.
I have to say,
it's actually kind of nice.
There are some things you
just can't solve
by racing ahead at full speed.
It's a lesson I learned
the hard way while making ramen.
And besides...
We owe it to Lui
to try to understand him
and let him do things his way.
You know, this introspective
side of you isn't so bad.
[Yolei] What's with all the
flirting, you two?
Come on. We are not flirting!
Anyway, we're in position.
If Lui isn't able to resolve
this situation...
Then, as we've already
we'll launch
a combined all out attack.
You still on board for that?
Yeah, I know what we have to do,
but I have full faith in Lui.
[quick breathing]
[breathing faster]
[mother] What are you doing,
grabbing my hand?
[Lui] Listen.
I realize it's very painful.
I'm sure it must be difficult.
It probably seems hopeless.
Huh? What?
I know because I'm
in the same situation.
But please just try
to listen a little bit harder
to what Lui says to you.
Because after all...
he loves you very much.
He really does.
[gentle music plays]
Oh, Lui.
[electronic whirring]
Here I am, Ukkomon.
I knew you'd come. Lui.
I just knew it.
And now we have
to have a celebration.
It's your birthday.
Oh, I...
I don't need anything.
I have no wishes.
Just as I suspected.
I thought you'd say that.
I remember when you
were younger,
when you still
needed me to help you out.
I wanted to give you
all the things
that I thought you'd enjoy.
I just wanted you to be happy.
That's why I did what I did.
I did everything
in my power for you.
And at some point,
I started believing everything
that pleased you must be a good
thing, no matter what it was.
I thought as long
as you smiled,
that meant you were truly happy.
I thought I understood
your feelings.
For a long time
I wondered why you couldn't
understand what I was feeling
when it seemed so obvious to me.
Although I guess I never learned
what things you like.
Oh, what things you don't like.
I didn't really know
anything about you.
And even now I still don't.
I think that maybe
what we needed to do...
...was to have some more.
[together] Conversations.
Like they do.
But still, there are some
things I know you like for sure.
Like hamburger steak and cake
and baseball.
[Lui chuckles]
Truth is,
I don't like any of that.
What? You meanie!
All right, then.
You know what I didn't like?
How quick you were
to rely on me.
And something I didn't like was
how pushy it was of you to say
you just wanted to make me happy
without knowing what would.
It was all stuff we
didn't like,huh?
Yeah, it's true.
I really want to keep talking
with you about everything.
I'd like that too.
Talking sounds great.
I want to get
to know you better.
I want to get to know you too.
Both the old you
and the person you're becoming.
Let's meet again.
And this time we won't
need any presents.
Yeah. Sounds good to me.
I'm sure we can start over again
from any point we want.
Which means right now, what
you're going to have to do is...
[strong wind blowing]
How'd it go?
Please defeat him.
It didn't work?
No, it's not that.
We just talked.
We know what we have to do in
order to meet each other again.
This was the conclusion
that we reached.
All right, then, let's all give
it everything we've got.
No, you don't!
Top gun.
[people screaming]
Justice Beam!
Clay bomb!
Mega Crusher.
The Digi-Eggs.
They're disappearing.
That's it. It's all over now.
So pretty.
Yeah it is.
Mission completed.
[Lui] The whole time...
he was just searching for a way
to do things over again with me.
A Digi-Egg.
He reverted?
Always thinking of me
no matter what.
The two of us
are seriously
bad at conversations.
So do you think that anything
happened to the bond between
DigiDestined and Digimon then?
Cause to me,
it looks like nothing's changed.
[electronic shimmering]
[Lui] The Digivice.
-The D-3's too.
-No way.
-The D-3s...
-They're disappearing.
[Lui] I didn't wish for anything
this time around,
so nothing was created
to form bonds
between people and Digimon.
You guys knew this'd happen,
but that things would be okay
even without these, didn't you?
Well, that means true friendship
is indestructible.
Yeah, you got that right.
Cheesy way to put it, Davis.
Yeah, I'll say.
So in the end,
what were the Digivices anyway?
They're what connected us.
Forged our bonds.
Or at least that's
what they were at first.
But maybe we haven't
needed them for a long time.
Devices and programs
don't connect us.
That takes a heart
to heart relationship.
And that means always
thinking about each other
and talking things out.
Bye bye then. See ya, D-3.
Thanks for everything.
Goodbye now.
And thank you.
So now begin?
What was that all about?
What's with that sad
look on your face, huh?
The snowball fight is on.
-No you didn't!
-Take this!
-Extra helping bomber!
-You are so gonna get it, Davis!
[all laughing playfully
Guess we'll just take things
as they come
and think up solutions
along the way.
If we put our minds to it,
I'm certain that we'll be
able to figure it all out.
Well, until we can do that,
do you maybe want to
think on it together?
Huh? Togeth--
Come on, Ken,
let's join the snowball fight.
Wait up! Hey, Yolei!
Look at you.
You get older, but you still
behave like children.
Stop acting all mature
and come play with us.
Oh, now you've done it. Kari.
[all laughing]
[narrator] There's a saying that
nothing is permanent
except change.
Even if something at first
seems perfect,
there's no guarantee that it
won't eventually be different.
In this case, the grip wrapped
so tightly around
important bonds was loosened,
bringing an end to a story
that would have simply continued
toward a predestined future.
As a result of that change,
with those sturdy and heavy
shackles at last cut away,
the world took its first
step toward
a host of new possibilities.

[wind blowing]
