Another movie for DBZ by the one and the only Akira Toriyama, wonder if they going to continue with Battle Of Gods plot or do something else.

The September issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine is announcing on Saturday that a new Dragon Ball Z movie will open during the Golden Week string of holidays next spring. Dragon Ball manga creator Akira Toriyama is personally credited with the original concept, screenplay and character designs of the new movie "that the entire universe eagerly awaits!!"

Toriyama confirmed in the magazine that this new film, like last year's Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, will tell a new story. He had intended to write this story as if it were a continuation of manga's original serialization. Although he did not plan on it, he is not only putting a lot of effort in drawing the art, but also "fussing over the smallest dialogue lines." He also promised more action scenes. He teased that the story is still secret, but will be "utterly funny."

To emphasize the effort he has put into this new film, Toriyama said that even his first manga editor praised him on the work he has done, even though this editor rarely ever does that. Toriyama is confident that fans will be able to thoroughly enjoy the movie. He is currently drawing up new character designs, and asked his fans to look forward to the movie.

As a general rule of thumb in anime news reporting, it's better to include the whole article. It's good you included the source link, but folks will be likely to comment less if they don't read the article here.

Recent Updates

As reported, a new anime feature film based on Akira Toriyama's super-popular Dragon Ball Z world and characters is scheduled to be released in Japan in the Golden Week holiday (from late April to early May) of 2015. The official site for the film today posted a 45-second teaser featuring the tagline "The worst wish in history, now the despair begins." Same as the 2013 film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, Toriyama himself involves in the film as the original creator, script writer, and character designer (including new ones). Battle of Gods was released in Japan on March 30, 2013 in 312 screens, and earned a surprisingly good 29.9 billion yen (about US$29 million) in its domestic run.

I post this vid in your OP.

Feel free to tweak it since it's your thread. I heard this movie focuses more on comedy just to appeal to the Dragon Ball folks.
