Dragon Ball Super Movie Trailer! In N Am Theaters - Jan

Postby The Shadow » Sat Jul 28, 2018 2:23 am

The trailer for the Dragon Ball Super movie dropped during SDCC -- here's the dub version (Funimation has a subbed version up but it looks choppy in the beginning). If I remember correctly, the movie will be out in Japan this December so it getting a North American showing in January is pretty nice (although it'll probably be a Fathom Events showing which my closest theater doesn't participate in)

I'll try to see it! Of course, I'm watching Super on Toonami, so I reckon I won't be technically caught up but that probably won't be a problem...

Man, it's amazing how Dragon Ball seems to occupy a bigger and bigger cultural space. It took a while to hit me that something popular when I was young was still popular.

I'm not 100% certain but I believe that this new movie will be like Battle of the Gods and Ressurection F in that those movies happen in line with the show. The prior movies were more like side stories, EG here's another adventure with Goku but it doesn't actually happen as far as the show's overall story line is concerned. So one could say that this is will be the canon version of Broly.

Toriyama has confirmed that he will consider this movie canon, unlike the previous Broly films.

What will be interesting will be whether this is a movie that they then continue on from whenever they re-start the weekly anime, or if it REALLY will be more like Battle of Gods and Resurrection F, where they essentially re-do this as a full 12-ish episode arc when they come back.

I really like that they tweaked the character designs for this movie. Really enjoying Super, but I think from a design standpoint there's a bit of blandness to it.

The way I see it, by letting the anime lead, even with Toriyama’s influence Super will be pretty much fleshed out by Toei, making it just a cut above your typical filler or GT. With these films Toriyama has more or leads taken the lead, so despite being animated outside of comics, BoTG, rF, and now Brolly have been & will be the best bit of Dragonball since DBZ’s end.

I thought Super was awesome. Calling it "just above filler" doesn't seem even remotely right.

I actually thought the Resurrection F arc on Super was better than the movie (preferred Battle of the Gods movie to the Super arc)
