Since there wasn't a proper thread made for this yet...


Most are already aware, but Shueisha has announced the production of a new Dragon Ball theatrical film scheduled for a "super-wide" national release in Japan in December 2018. This movie will be the 20th produced for the franchise, with the first movie premiering over 30 years ago in December 1986.

As with the 2015 movie Resurrection 'F', original author Akira Toriyama developed the movie's story and concept, as well as writing the its script and providing character designs. While movies of the past have centered around specific enemies, this film's theme will center around "the universe's mightiest warrior race, the Saiyans". It is very likely that much, if not all, of the information provided by Akira Toriyama in his recent "Saiyan Special Q&A" in the January 2018 issue of Saikyo Jump was taken from the story development for this new movie.

*The new information/retcons from Toriyama's aforementioned interview can be found here:

Here is the upcoming film's complete announcement, from "Jump Festa 2018":

All info, and/or thoughts related to the film can be posted here... Personally, I am looking forward to the background of Saiyans(namely their heritage and genealogy) being explored far more in depth.

Is this anime or real life?

Galan007
none

...It's anime.

Ridley_Prime
Bojack was a beloved character? News to me. stick out tongue

I guess Yamoshi will be kinda like the Bardock of DB Super...

Galan007
That's what I'm hoping for, tbh. thumb up

Though I do wonder if they'll stick to Yamoshi having a similar appearance to Vegeta, like we saw in Shenron's retelling of the first Super Saiyan God in BoG..?

Bentley
I lol'd at the Bojack comment.

Galan007
I guess Bojack might be more 'beloved' than, like, Lord Slug or Bio-Broly... But that's about it. ermmnone

StiltmanFTW
So... this new film will also be retold in Super, boring us to death?

Galan007
If DBS is still going strong in another year+, I would imagine Toei will do a 'TV Special' or somesuch.

Galan007
The official website for the upcoming Dragon Ball theatrical film has been updated with the film's key staff, a new visual of Goku, and its Japanese release date: December 14 2018.

-Original Author, Script, & Character Design: Akira Toriyama
-Director: Tatsuya Nagamine
-Animation Supervisor: Naohiro Shintani
-Art Director: Kazuo Ogura

Nagamine previously served as one of the series directors during Dragon Ball Super's "Universe Survival arc". Shintani previously worked on key animation during the 2008 Jump Super Anime Tour special. Ogura previously worked on backgrounds for 2013's theatrical film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.


Toriyama also released the following statement:

*So this film is going to be a continuation of DBS -- essentially the next chapter in the story.

*It's also worth pointing out that the DBS manga will continue as-is -- there are currently NO plans for it to end. Aside from what Toriyama stated above, Toyotaro reiterated it on Twitter:

Da phuck is that art?haermm

I mean Goku looks like he has down syndrome....

vansonbee
Since this movie is a continuation from super, I suspect a little glimpses in the next arc. The art from Z to super is sure shitty, now this movie poster of Goku takes the next final step. Almost as bad as Sun/Moon Pokemon.

SSJGGogeta
Damn wouldn't it be cool if they went really in-depth about some of the Saiyan's history, biology, culture, and other aspects of the Saiyan's we've never really had explored before? That would be awesome, and I hope we get a lot of explanations to things like those S-cells or whatever, the Legendary Super Saiyan, how some Saiyan's manage to breath in outer space, why Saiyan's hair style stays the same from the day they're born, why they all have black hair/black eyes, and lot's of other things like that which have gone under-explained for so long in DB.

Probably won't happen, but it'd be cool to see things like that.

Tbh, that'd be pretty cool imo if Goku starts using the Power Pole again. Maybe it can't break because it's magical, or something..? That was one of the things I was always really sad they got rid of. I thought the power pole was badass, honestly. It sent boss Rabbit to the moon in like a second, lmao. Plus it's cut swords in half despite being round, blocked machine gunfire, etc. The magic on that thing is honestly pretty impressive, and I'd like to have some of that elaborated on as well. Maybe even a return of it, as well as an explanation as to why it could still be useful in battle- that'd be pretty dope IMO.

Galan007
^ This movie is supposed to get pretty crazy with Saiyan genealogy. It will also depict the first SSJ/SSG ever: Yamoshi...

I figured the whole "a Saiyan has no limits" concept would be pivotal in this film, though. Should be...interesting, to say the least.

Why did they even need to add "S-cells" lol? Nobody ****ing cares about why only some could do it. Literally all you need to do is maintain that "Pure" heart angle and it's good enough. Jesus, I can't imagine anyone wanted this reveal.

"S-Cells are essential to becoming a Super Saiyan, when a Saiyan has gained enough they can transform by feeling intense levels of anger or sadness; alternatively (as demonstrated by Caulifla), by focusing their power into a tingling sensation in their upper-back (directly below their neck)"

By seeing this preview, the desire of a movie with less powerful villains and a less powerful Goku is strong for me.
As cool as MUI Goku, Jiren, the GoDs and the Angels are, we really approached the ceiling of battle power with the last arc of Super: I mean, MUI Goku at this point is probably the strongest non-Angel being in the Multiverse, surpassing even the Gods of Destruction.
Sure, he is cool as hell and it was perfect to have the ultimate Goku for the DBS gran finale, but now I would like to see few steps back in power: this Goku reminds me of his saiyan-Namek saga counterpart, before achieving Ssj and I would love to see a less OP fight liked we were used to at the beginning of Z (i.e. Slug, or Turles).

I thought this Goku was supposed to be after ToP? And if that being is indeed the original Super Saiyan God, then it is still decent enough levels. Especially with the tagline of "A Saiyan has no limits Sj Sharp".

Though Goku shouldn't even have to go Blue at this state, but we'll see.

Yeah, it is post DBS.
It just something that I thought after seeing Goku with the power pole first, and then with the good, old BoZ belt.

MrMind
they better make super saiyan god look like ssj4 on steroids

Yamcha
The more I watch the teaser the more I really think if that's Yamoshi then his SSG form essentially turns him into a version of Sun Wukong. I know Broly isn't canon but think of how his Legendary form was different from the Super Saiyan we were used to, it could be this ancient SSG form is different than the one we know of.

DB in general was a nod to Journey to the West, and the wrap around this mysterious opponents waist looks a lot like the one in the JttW outfit, also it seems parts of him are covered in fur. It could be why Goku is bringing out the Power Pole after all these years, maybe Yamoshi has something similar, just like in the legend? I'm not crazy familiar with the tale but didn't Wukong rebel against the Gods? We know Yamoshi rebelled against the evil Saiyans, so it does have me curious.


Idk just a bunch of speculation atm, but it's fun having something new and DB related to look forward to lol.

bbrem123
Unless it is "The" god of all saiyans.

Or the Apocalypse of saiyans or something.

Yamcha

Galan007
It's funny seeing the theoretical plotlines people on the interwebz are already coming up with based on that 30 second trailer, lol. thumb up


All we know about the film so far is:
-It will be a continuation of DBS -- the next chapter in the story.
-It will tell the story of the first SSJ/SSG: Yamoshi.
-It will expand upon Saiyan genealogy/powersets by introducing the concept of 'S-Cells'.

...And hell, the last episode of DBS hasn't even been released yet. We don't even know if these massively haxx powers gleaned during the ToP are going to stick once all is said and done and the wish is made. evil face

One Big Mob
If they're still continuing on with how important SSG is or how it is in the past, I have my doubts we'll get a reboot.

Galan007
They could just undo the ToP. Goku and Vegeta would still retain their God-powers, but the asininely haxx powerups/zenkais that led up to ASSB and MUI, for example, would be gone.

...I doubt that will happen, but I'd be totally fine if it did. Hell, even a complete reboot would work for me at this point, tbh.

One Big Mob
I wish I could reboot all your posts in this thread

Galan007
I wish I could reboot your face with my fist. thumb up

Sorry brah but your DB Super knowledge is clearly incomplete.

Those are the U cells backfiring every DB Super Pro knows to attain Ultra Instict you need to have U cells....uhuh

Galan007
So given that as of ep.131, Goku still cannot consciously activate UI...or control it on *any* level, for that matter... The 'big bad' in this film will likely be well below Jiren-level.

...Which I am totally fine with. thumb up

AuraAngel
Considering the wish was to bring back all of the erased universes we could potentially see more violent GoD or even maybe a bad Angel from the 6 universes erased prior to the series.

Galan007
thumb up

The wish was left ambiguous enough that universes 13-18 could have indeed been resurrected along with the rest... And who knows what type of power(and potential evil) they held.

cdtm
I bet Goku never does UI again.

Even if he dies.

The next logical step is Jiren level + MUi. thumb up

Goku needed an amp technically anyone can reach just to keep up with his natural power. Imagine Jiren with an amp.

UI Omen Goku himself must remain one of a kind, let alone MUI Goku.

Just against an evil Hakaishin or even an evil angel I could see MUI Goku coming back. For everything else, to me he would be unnecessary and wasted.

I mean hell. At this rate I wouldn't be suprised if saiyans are said to have infinite power. With their only restriction being able actually harnessing that power.

Posting this in the appropriate thread:

cdtm
Are they giving out free used parties with admission?

cdtm
That must have been an auto correct mishap, because I'm pretty sure I meant to say panties.

Because Japan, where they have vending machines selling used panties.

Galan007
So it's confirmed that Freeza will be in this film, along with at least 3 new characters:

Real or fake? This kinda blew up recently on social media...

Either way, at this point I could see Toriyama just giving in to the Broly fans and rebuilding him and his story from the ground up, tired as I am of all the recycling or references that's been done with him through other characters and stuff.

While I'd be happy for some fans if legit, my anticipation for this movie would also plummet due to it likely not feeling new/original.

Ridley_Prime
Oh, I guess it is legit from what everyone's saying.

Well then, congrats fam. Crazy dreams do come true... I guess Kale was perhaps just put there in the ToP beforehand to plant the seeds to build up to Broly being canonized or something.

Estacado
If its true then **** **** yessssssss!!!!!!

God Im só damn happy!!!

Damborgson
Broly, wow.

Consider me much more interested now.

Estacado
Imagine Broly with a better origin story being the original super saiyan god! 313wank

Ridley_Prime
Does this mean Broly fans can now finally admit that his original story was shit? stick out tongue

But yeah, I'm all for a better retelling.

Estacado
Ofc it was, still he is awesome, the way he transforms, his ki attacks and lssj form is just way too cool for me to not like him.

cdtm
If it leads to Broly vs Omega Shenron in DBH, I'm all for it.

Well there ya go, in case there was still any doubt.

That's an interesting translation of "Duuuh! Dooooy! Mfrble! *Drool*

You know, standard braindead hack speak. Toriyama's brain is probably in a glass jar, like Dr. Wilow.

Ridley_Prime
laughing out loud

If nothing else, have Jiren come in at the end and save the day with a smile.

Damborgson
NOW I'm hyped. Can't wait for this movie.

MrMind
I'd rather they have a new character that look like Broly with a completely different origin
than using the same character but change him completely

honestly super saiyan god sounds badass, this...is just fanservice

Ridley_Prime
I feel ya. People who were looking forward to something new/original with this saiyan or the movie in general have every right to be disappointed. The DB communities everywhere are kinda shaken if not divided over this, but will get over it eventually I reckon, just like those who initially hated Goku Black on paper or Frieza returning (RoF/ToP) on paper.

Am still mixed on this overall, but remain cautiously optimistic.

Estacado
Now people now how I felt when they announced the return of Frieza...haermm

Now I think he is awesome but when I found out he comes back with a golden form I was super dissappointed.

ares834
The difference is Freeza is actually a decent character unlike Broly. There is nothing to Broly other then "muh powah lvls".

Estacado
Thats like saying Doomsday is a bad villain cause his backstory and characteristics isnt as good As Braniac's.

ares834
Well yeah... Doomsday is shit. He's a plot device rather then a character. DoS is the only time he has been a decent villain. He pales in comparison to characters like Braniac.

Galan007
A multiverse of possibilities, and they recycle a character from the old movies.

Jesus. facepalm


Now Broly will be able to contend with SSB Goku and Vegeta cuz his S-Cell count is teh greatest evah!111!!1!! #MaximumPowa

Astner
The Legendary Super Saiyan Yamosh...Broly!

Yamcha
I'm stoked about this reveal to be honest, I know a lot of people will be divided on it but I'm really interested to see the Toriyama version of the character.

bbrem123
Yeah if they do the story right and make him some powerful legend that and has nothing to do Goku, I am cool with that.

If it is the same old Broly with his I hate goku for making me cry shit, I am not cool with that.

cdtm
Kind of funny how Toriyama's beat ideas are coming from fan fics.

Galan007
So from what I'm seeing, not only are we getting Broly, but we're getting Paragus as well(the same guy who voices him in the "DB Heroes" game has been added to the cast of voice actors for this film.)

StiltmanFTW
Good news.

When it'll be placed? After ToP or a wholly different universe?

Galan007
Supposed to be post-ToP... Essentially the next chapter of DBS.

StiltmanFTW

Thanks.

CAN'T WAIT FOR IT BEING RETOLD IN THE ANIME laughing out loud

Estacado
Instead of Lssj we will get Lssjglssj as in Legendary super saiyan god legendary super saiyan. uhuh

Ridley_Prime
Paragus too huh? ... Now we just need to see Toriyama cook up his vision of Bio Broly!

cdtm
God, I hope not.

Only because the Bio Broly story is one of the only stories where Goku or Gohan didn't save the day. I don't think Toriyama KNOWS how to use his supporting characters as leads, so we'd just get a lame Goku vs a literally watered down Broly..

Also, this film's title is going to be: "Dragon Ball Super: Broly"... Nope, I am not joking. smile

One Big Mob
They could have at least kept the baggy pants.

Great name though. Broly Brol Super: Broly would be better though.

Ridley_Prime
Wasn't expecting that much a design change, though the different colored pants is kind of an improvement I guess, but the darker green hair/aura is where it's at.

Galan007
On a slightly different note, I am curious to see what sort of role Freeza will play in this..? I mean, I'm sure he won't be happy that another absurdly powerful Saiyan has entered the fray. /shrug

Freeza just needs to start legitimately training again(hopefully he has been)... His power needs to stay relevant.

Ridley_Prime
Would be a waste for Frieza to get revived by Whis magic only for him to get squashed by Broly (and thus die again) because 'fanservice'.

I hope he plays another helpful or interesting role, regardless.

I hope he plays another helpful or interesting role, regardless. Tbh, I think Toriyama would murder his entire family before he killed Freeza again.

That said, if Freeza is going to stick around he needs to stay relevant *somehow*(whether it's through his sheer power, or his scheming/machinations.) Because as of the ToP, both Goku and Vegeta are each so far above him that it's f*cking retarded.

Ridley_Prime
Yeah. It's just that Frieza was only able to take as much punishment in the ToP as he did because he was already dead at the time, but now that he's alive again... If Broly were to go GoD Toppo on Frieza, I don't think Frieza would live to tell about it.

Unless they make him stronger again, which is why Frieza fans (myself included) are just hoping for the best from him.

NemeBro
Freeza will be Broly's love interest.

Since this is basically Saiyan fanservice: The movie, a new flashback or something of Bardock being badass would be nice, but since Toriyama's Bardock is basically a cuck, I guess that won't happen...

Nah, classic Broly was bedazzled as f*ck:

Estacado
So the theory going around is that Frieza is the boss of Paragus who is in control of Broly and he tells him to kill Vegeta and Goku. (Hence the FF armor)

That would be pretty dumb though since Paragus just command him to kill Frieza but whateva...

Galan007
The notion that Freeza would knowingly allow a Saiyan to live who is a threat to himself, is utterly ridiculous. The dude tried to wipe out the entire race of Saiyans(at a time when none of them...even as Oozarus...could have even remotely challenged his FIRST form), simply because of the race's potential.

...Or perhaps Freeza has found a way to 'grow' Broly in one of his resurrection chambers, and Paragus is merely the scientist who did most of the work..?

But even then it's stupid AF. It'd be like an amalgamation of classic Broly and Bio-Broly, lol.

I wonder if that Yamoshi thing is still true, and Broly is a descendant that became "The Legendary Super Saiyan" (whatever that means anymore)

Or he's a descendant of Yamoshi's enemy who had that power, and that's why he needed the ritual to stop him.

Something involving the past anyway with Broly. Just thinking there's some truth to Yamoshi rumors and they connect it to Broly.

Certainly it's no coincidence that Yamoshi(the first SSJ/SSG) and "S-Cells"(evidently the building blocks of Saiyan potential) are now a thing, and Broly...the "Legendary" Super Saiyan...just so happens to be appearing in this film.

I'm going to lol when it's revealed that Paragus used Freeza-tech to create Broly via experimental S-Cell manipulation... Or perhaps Toriyama will go FULL Star Wars and just have Broly be conceived by the S-Cells. thumb up

I can see it. S-Cells get revealed in some sort of laboratory scene. Probably a flashback.

Paragus and some scientist are discussing Broly's potential.


Though I hope they don't actually use that as a plot point

Galan007
Given the state of the franchise, that is definitely one of the more plausible origin stories, imo. Paragus is some sort of expert in Saiyan history/genealogy(*enter newfound knowledge about the first SSJ/SSG along with S-Cells*), and ultimately creates Broly at the behest of Freeza.

And I could see Freeza saying something like: "I have come to the conclusion that the best way to kill a monkey... Is with a STRONGER monkey!!!"

One Big Mob
I don't like how accurate this is sounding.

Galan007
ikr? I feel like we just spoiled the movie for everyone. ermm

This looks dumb, and not the fun kind of dumb that the first Broly movie was.

Not getting some of the sudden pessimism for this film. Will have to see I guess if it's justified in the soon to come trailer.

Estacado
Cause people here kinda hate Broly simple as that....

Ridley_Prime
Ironically, was actually referring more to some of the Broly fans who fear this film might **** him up, but I'm not seeing how it would, at least not yet.

I mean any kind of origin story, even if Frieza's partly behind it, would still be better than Broly getting triggered because Goku made him cry.

What happened to Broly's bling?

Eh, I liked it.

Big fan of the new trailer, they also revealed in some art of the characters for the movie that Vegeta will be using SSG at some point so that's no longer going to be a manga only form for him, so that's pretty cool too.

Seen the new trailer. This movie looks extremely, extremely, extremely badass. This movie is going to look amazing. .

Frieza is gonna be Broly's ****doll...

Ridley_Prime
Maybe, though just going by the trailer I'm still glad Frieza won't be getting the short end of the stick, in relation to Vegeta and such... That would just be Gohan as per the usual.

And yeah, SSJG Vegeta in anime form will be interesting.

Can't wait. I will miss "KAKAKROT!!!" though, I hope they throw a little nod in that direction at some point.

Also yes, Frieza will get his own tail inserted into a brand new orifice that Broly will create.

cdtm
Kakaroto!

Playmaker
So, it's just a remake of "Broly - the Legendary Super Saiyan"? Hmmm...hopefully they give Broly a better backstory instead of "mad at Goku for crying as baby instead of Vegeta whose father tried to kill him." I'm curious as to what will change. The movie is said to explore the origins of the Saiyans and Frieza.

Eh, I liked it. Totally get the vibe that Broly was created by Freeza/Paragus as some sort of experiment to create a Saiyan stronger than Goku and Vegeta. That would explain why Freeza said "Magnificent! His power level is amazing!", and also why he appeared to be sparring with Broly. It would also explain why Vegeta said "dammit, he's learning as he fights!!!", as though it was Broly's first true battle... So I'm thinking the origin story Bran and I mentioned on the last page is going to be a VERY strong possibility here, tbh.


Also, base Broly stalemating SSB Goku... Jesus, lol. If MUI doesn't appear again as a counter for LSSJ Broly, I'll be shocked.

Galan007
So here are all the forms we can expect from Broly:

Similar to the original movies:

If Gogeta happens like some theorize, there may be no need for MUI at this time.

i.e. If you recall them remastering some of previous movies, Fusion Reborn being one of them, along with Broly, perhaps it was done to put Gogeta in the minds of fans for the new Broly film...

Will have to see though, but I wouldn't mind it happening with how badass and to the point Gogeta was with Janemba. Regardless, definitely agree at this point that new Broly is a genetic experiment/creation, and since they didn't seem to change his character too much (as far as personality or lack thereof), it makes sense for him to be something like that.
