New Dragon Ball Super Movie Gets A Release Date In Japan

It sounds like we will be getting a new Dragon Ball Super animated movie at the end of the year. This was announced recently via the official Japanese Dragon Ball Super Twitter page today. 

Information is little at the moment, but we do know that the release date for it in Japan is December 14th, 2018.

Translator Ken Xyro on Twitter says the movie should be the next part of Dragon Ball Super which means the series might not mean it's the true end of the Tournament of Power arc.

An official statement from Akira Toriyama can be seen below.

"The Dragon Ball Super movie this time around will be the next story that takes place after the anime that's currently on TV. The content will shed a little light on previously unexplored topics having to do with Frieza and the Saiyans, and I think it will be a very enjoyable story that serves up a long-awaited formidable opponent!

With 2013's Battle of Gods, the previous instalment 'Resurrection "F" and now this time too, I've been the one writing the series. I've also been drawing quite a few things for them, like design illustrations. I'm actually as busy as ever, amd if I wasn't serializing anything, I'd have time to think about the anime with which I used to not have enough time to be involved (lol). So on that note, I very much hope you look forward to it!

By the way, I think the highly popular Dragon Ball Super manga, drawn by Toyotaro, is going to see some developments different from the TV anime or movies, so please look forward to that. Be sure to check it out too!"

This is all great news and thankfully the Dragon Ball Super franchise will not be ending in late March as initially feared. We can all look forward for more Dragon Ball adventures as an early 2018 Christmas present!
