Plans for a new Dragon Ball Super movie were recently announced, with Akira Toriyama heavily involved once again. The special [email protected] 2021 panel was streamed today, revealing more info about what we can look forward to with the next theatrical feature. The movie is titled Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, and it features a bunch of new technology that gives it a smoother look, as showcased in a brief 3DCG-animated clip of Goku.
After a scorching performance of the “CHA LA HEAD CHA LA” theme song from Dragon Ball Z by Hironobu Kageyama, Goku VA Masako Nozawa joined Toei Animation producer Norihiro Hayashida, and Toriyama’s editor and Dragon Ball series executive producer Akio Iyoku to discuss the new film, showing off character art for the likes of Piccolo, Pan, and Krillin. We also got a look at some of the detailed environments before they moved on to talking about how heavily involved Toriyama is in the film once again.
“He was deeply involved in the last movie ‘Broly’ as well, but he’s even more invested this time,” Iyoku explained. Toriyama was already writing the script for this movie while Dragon Ball Super: Broly was in production, and Iyoku thinks “Toriyama-sensei himself would say this is the best movie yet.”
They then showed some of Toriyama’s original art for a new character that was drawn before the movie went into production.
Finally, the title of the film was revealed: Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.
A special clip even showcased Goku in motion:
