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.

@Destinyheroknight:

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.

@Destinyheroknight:

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.

Seriously? Villain Rehash? I know DBZ doesn't have a great plot but this is just..... -_- (Reminds me of FFVII: Advent Children)

12 universes and yet Akira decides to bring back Frieza....whoop-de-f******-do!

We'll see how this turns out.

Frieza is objectively the best villain in DBZ in my opinion and probably the most iconic (canon) villain. if anyone comes back it should be him. I personally am not upset. Had it been most any other character then I would be upset. But I always thought Frieza could come back and Frieza alone.

Well, I guess that's why they brought him up in the last movie. He's going to need a huuuuge power boost because the characters have been playing around with villains around his "power level".

I can already see the plot. Two lackeys gather the Dragon Balls and wish Frieza back to life. Frieza somehow gets a humongous power boost and decides to have his revenge on the Saiyans. He whoops everyone's a** including Beerus's and maybe Whis's (Thus DBZ passes Solar System level). Vegeta goes into SSJG and fuse with Goku, thus becoming Vegoku or Kuveta! (bad names I know). They kill him and everyone's happy. Then...a danger originating from the 5th universe rises.....it's BROLY! the non-cannon verse is real!! (don't ask how he's alive). And he thirsts for monkey blood!

@EVA_01: That was amazing. Will you write my biography after I've died?

Post by EVA_01 (1,548 posts) See mini bio Level 12

@Acura_Max: Sure, why not. But don't complain in the afterlife if I take a few..."liberties" when writing your biography, 'kay?

Is that Gohan or Yamcha in green? I think Vegeta should be the one to kill Frieza this time.

@Supreme Marvel:i thought it was yamcha, but someone made a good point that yamcha has scars on his face. so it should be gohan

I was hoping for a brand new villain or bring back the whole Frieza family for a big fight. It feels like DBZ is running out of ideas for villains. I still have to rent the DBZ Battle of the Gods movie.

Here we go. Bigger version. You can see its Gohan now. I like the green look. Hope this is where they take him to a new direction.

Oh, the new villain is Frieza. What he going to do? I think Cooler would be better, because he is the coolest of the family
