Trust me it’s not a normal thing for me to post again on the same day, especially when I know it’s about my time to head to bed. But I was reported this information, by one of our Verto on the Asylum on Facebook., I’m sure it’s already been hit on every big news media site that covers anime and even the top Dragon Ball websites.
Majin Planet has never been a news site, I’ve never tried to be due to my job and not having the connections or really being known in the community of Dragon Ball.
Being as that is, this is the news about the upcoming Dragon Ball Super film we’ve been hearing about happening. With only two episodes of Dragon Ball Super left, people have wondered if Super and Dragon Ball is ending.
Well no, as this is not called Dragon Ball Z like the last two films were. It’s called Dragon Ball Super.
It’s Dragon Ball Super!
This is huge as this will be the first Dragon Ball Super film. While Battle of Gods and Resurrection ‘F’ where stories that take place in the Super storyline, they were marketed under the name Dragon Ball Z.
First, we got this image which was posted.
At Majin Planet, this is big because the website’s ending year event and Birthday happen on December 13th, the film coming out the day after in Japan. We as America fans will not see this film until likely sometime next year. I want to make this super (no pun) clear.
We will not get a subversion of the film until much time later in March of 2019 or later. Not until the film comes out on DVD in Japan. I’ve never seen an animated film gets subbed while playing.
Don’t count on getting a quick release, as Battle of Gods came out on March 30, 2013, but wasn’t out in the US theaters until August the following year.
From the Man himself
We have some details about the film, here is the image released, that has information from Akira Toriyama.
At the moment I’m so thrilled and happy but at the same time tired so I think for now I’ll let myself process this and talk about it Sunday on the Podcast. For now, take this for what it is. Remember some people will try to read too much into this.
I’ve read people saying it’ll be about the original Super Saiyan God, I’ve heard it’s a retelling of Goku Black, etc. No all the information is there, this is what we have, let’s enjoy what we have of Dragon Ball so far.
The biggest take away is this film takes place after Dragon Ball Super we know, how much time will pass between the last anime episode and the film we simply don’t know yet, we also don’t know if this film in any way will be in the manga which is something totally different in some regard to the anime.
