New Dragon Ball Movie in the Works

During the recent Jump Festa anime and manga convention, Toei Animation has announced that they have entered production on the 20th feature film for the mega popular Dragon Ball franchise. The last feature film was 2015’s Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F, which saw the return of series villain Frieza, and the franchise itself at the time was enjoying renewed fan interest due to the Dragon Ball Super anime and the Battle of Gods film.

While not much has been revealed regarding the plot of the upcoming Dragon Ball film, it is said that original manga author Akira Toriyama will have a big input on the story, screenplay, and character design process and that the movie will delve into the mythos of the ultra powerful Saiyan. The film is slated for a December 2018 release.

The original press release:

“Since 1986, the series has introduced many memorable and beloved characters to countless die-hard fans. The recent years have witnessed a new wave of renaissance for the Dragon Ball series. Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods, released in 2013, was a welcomed return to the big screen for the first time in 17 years. Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F followed that up with more success in 2015. From then on, Dragon Ball has continued to further expand their world; leading to the current acclaimed broadcast [series], Dragon Ball Super.”

“The theme for this remarkable new film will be ‘Saiyan,’ the strongest race in the universe. Since Battle of the Gods, Goku has undergone new forms from Super Saiyan God to Super Saiyan Blue to other evolved forms that have gone up against many invincible warriors from multiple universes. This new story will focus on the origin of the Saiyans’ strength and what it means to be Saiyan.”
