FUNimation to Premiere Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F in LA This April
As with Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, you can’t expect to see an English dub release of the upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F immediately. However, if you really can’t wait a few months and don’t understand Japanese, FUNimation’s got you covered. According to an announcement made during the recent SXSW Gaming Expo, FUNimation has acquired the theatrical, home entertainment, VOD, and broadcast rights for the film, and they will be hosting the world premiere at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles CA on April 11.
The screening will feature Japanese audio, but will have English subtitles. This is a boon for people who dislike dubs and would prefer the original Japanese dub complemented by English subs. Unfortunately, you might want to move fast if you want to be among the lucky ones who will get to watch; the screening is open to the general public, but the tickets are limited and can be purchased via the official site, DragonballZ.com
For the uninitiated, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F is a direct follow up to Battle of Gods, and will feature the return of one of the series’ most iconic villain, Frieza. In the movie’s story, the remnants of Frieza’s army has used the Dragonballs to revive Frieza, and upon resurrection, the villain has decided to train himself (something he’s never done before) in order to catch up to the power levels of Goku and Vegeta.
