Huge Dragon Ball Super news came out of Toei and Funimation’s panel during the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). First, they revealed the first trailer for the upcoming Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie, which teased plenty of battles. These include Broly taking on Vegeta, Goku, and yes, Frieza.
Meanwhile, IGN released an English-dubbed version of the movie’s new trailer as well:
During the SDCC panel, Toei Animation also unveiled the character designs for Goku, Vegeta, and Broly for the movie. These include the normal and various Super Saiyan forms for the three characters.
Meanwhile, Dragon Ball mangaka Akira Toriyama also talked about the new anime, as he released a new comment:
“Everyone, do you know who Broly is?
He appeared only in past anime films, and is a ridiculously strong Saiyan. I am told I only drew his design; at that time I was mostly uninvolved with the anime, and so I completely forgot the details.
Even now it seems Broly is still very popular not just in Japan, but overseas as well, and because of that, the supervisors suggested, “Why don’t we make the movie about Broly this time?”
At that time I was shown the film, and I felt that it would become really interesting depending on how it’s arranged, so we started talking immediately about including [Broly] into the Dragon Ball Superseries.
In order to not disappoint Broly fans, I was conscious of Broly’s past image, while also giving him new aspects, and I think he ended up as a fascinating Broly.
Of course, the film won’t just show amazing battles — it will also show what kind of fate Goku, Vegeta, and Broly will follow when they meet; how the Frieza Army is connected; and the history of the Saiyans — the content of the film is dramatic and has a huge scale.
That greatest Saiyan, Broly, appears!
There will be lots of other content that will be included for all the fans, so please look forward to it and wait a little longer until it is complete!!”
Toriyama himself is writing the script, while Tatsuya Nagamine (One Piece Film Z) is directing the movie. Toei Animation will once again be animating the movie as well. It will premiere in Japan on December 18, 2018, and international releases have been confirmed.
