Great news for fans of the Dragon Ball franchise!
Last week, Toei Animation listed a new Dragon Ball Super anime film set for 2022 and, now, original creator Akira Toriyama has confirmed the news.
This upcoming anime film will be the second movie for the Dragon Ball Super franchise and, overall, the 21st movie of the Dragon Ball franchise. The new release will be the second film based on Dragon Ball Super manga and anime which launched in 2015. The first such movie was the 2018 release, Dragon Ball Super: Broly.
NEW DRAGON BALL MOVIE
Original creator Akira Toriyama will write the screenplay and also design characters. He had this to say about the movie:
An all new movie since Dragon Ball Super: Broly is currently in the making!
Just like the previous movie, I’m heavily leading the story and dialogue production for another amazing film.
I really shouldn’t talk too much about the plot yet, but be prepared for some extreme and entertaining bouts, which may feature an unexpected character.
We’ll be charting through some unexplored territory in terms of the visual aesthetics to give the audience an amazing ride, so I hope everybody will look forward to the new movie!
Dragon Ball Super: Broly anime film opened in 2018 and grossed about $120 million worldwide. It was also written by Akira Toriyama and other members of the staff are Tatsuya Nagamine (One Piece Film Z) who directed the film, Naohiro Shintani who served as animation director, Kazuo Ogura who served as art director, and Norihito Sumitomo who composed the music.
