Finally, the new film has a name associated with Akira Toriyama’s masterpiece that was announced a few years ago. Dragon Ball Super: superhero It’s going to be a film designed to spark discussion, both in terms of the purely visual and narrative components, but the conditions for something big are all there.

The team has not disclosed his age, but children in Japan start school between the ages of 6 and 7 and if confirmed it would mean that Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is relaying the events of the story. at least 2 years after the end of “Z” that we remind you to follow Majin Buu’s defeat for 10 years.

As if that wasn’t enough Akira Toriyama Personally, he is closely involved in the feature film, as if to lay the foundation for a narrative that goes well beyond what was built in the years of serialization of Weekly Shonen Jump. Without considering that Dragon Ball is still a goose that lays golden eggs, the transmission of which continues to bring Shueisha and TOEI animation, as well as the Sensei himself, large sums of money. We therefore cannot rule out that this film can serve as a stepping stone for the future events of the franchise, which will likely follow a leap in time, perhaps even in the manga at the end of the Granolah saga. At the same time, it could also be an independent film that has nothing to do with current history, even if the authors should not miss such an opportunity to lay the foundation for the future of Dragon Ball.
