Toei Animation has now announced more details about its upcoming Dragon Ball Super movie that will be out this December.

The cool thing about it is that it will be about the Saiyan Broly and this will be the first time he will be added to the official Dragon Ball Super canonical timeline.

The official Dragon Ball Super Twitter page made the official announcement by posting up a logo as well as a cool looking poster.

The movie will be out on December 14th, 2018 and will be shown in cinemas including IMAX and other big screens.

Following on from the announcement, the official website posted an update with Akira Toriyama's latest comments about Dragon Ball Super: Broly. You can read his full announcement posted down below.

"Everyone, are you familiar with Broly? He's an incredibly strong Saiyan who only appeared in the old anime movies, and I apparently at least drew the designs for him, but I had practically no involvement with the anime at the time, so I had totally forgotten about the story content. So, about Broly. I hear these days, he's still very popular not only in Japan, but also overseas. Based on that, my editor suggested we have Broly appear in this next movie. I went ahead and watched the movies from back then, and I felt this could be quite interesting once I rearrange some things. I got right to work trying my hand at a story that incorporates him into the Dragon Ball Super series. While keeping in mind Broly's classic image so as not to disappoint his fans, I updated him and added a new side to his character, and I think this has resulted in a more fascinating Broly. Naturally you’ll get to see fierce combat, but also, the paths of destiny that lead to an encounter between Goku, Vegeta, and Broly. It also involves the Frieza Force and the history of the Saiyans, which end up having a major connection to everything. The story content turns out to be very large-scale and dramatic. Here comes that almighty Saiyan, Broly! I'm also including lots of other content all you fans will enjoy, so look forward to it, and be patient a while longer for it all to come together!!"

This is all exciting news and more information about Dragon Ball Super: Broly will be revealed later this month. Stay tuned here at Empty Lighthouse Magazine for all your latest Dragon Ball news!
