Butterfly (the slightly different version) begins to play in the background. Taichi looks up to see Greymon. He reaches up and hugs him. The camera zooms out to Butterfly and then the scene finally fades to black. See more
In the Japanese version of the third segment of the movie, Willis (or Wallace) has nothing to do with the creation of Diaboromon, Yolei didn't have uncles that helped her and the others go to Colorado, and there was a subplot where Endigomon (Diaboromon) kidnapped the original DigiDestined (Chosen Children) and made them younger in order to find Willis. Also, Willis never appeared in the second segment, that was added in the US release only. See more
