“Dragon Ball Super” Anime Film Dated with “One Piece Film Z” Director at the Helm
The Dragon Ball Super TV anime may be coming to an end, but don’t forget that we have a feature film to look forward to later this year! The tentatively-titled Dragon Ball Super movie recently got some more information on its official website, which has the 20th Dragon Ball feature lined up for a December 14 opening in Japan.
The Dragon Ball Super movie has Dragon Ball mastermind Akira Toriyama on the scripts and character designs, with Tatsuya Nagamine (One Piece Film Z) as director, Naohiro Shintani (key animation on the Dragon Ball: Yo! The Return of Son Goku and Friends!! ONA) as animation director, and Kazuo Ogura (One Piece Film Gold, One Piece Film Z) on art direction.
Naturally, the amazingly powerful Masako Nozawa will return to voice Goku.
According to Toriyama’s comments, the movie takes place after the Tournament of Power, and will contain previously unwritten details about the Saiyans and Frieza, while introducing a “long-awaited strong opponent.”
Toriyama also mentioned that, while the TV anime is ending for now, Toyotarō’s Dragon Ball Super manga will continue, and he thinks it will have different developments from both the TV series and movie.
The visual on the website says “‘Super’ movie version, begins.” Here’s a closer look at the image of Goku:
