New Dragon Ball Film Announced for December 2018 – Will Focus On The Origins Of The Saiyans & Their Strength!

Have you ever wondered what made the Saiyans so special that they ended up been the strongest in the universe? Well, the upcoming Dragon Ball 2018 movie will finally address all our burning questions. 

Thanks to Kansenshuu, we got a translation of some news that came from Jump Festa 2018:

An important announcement from the mountain stage on the first day of “Jump Festa 2018”!

The development of a new Dragon Ball movie, the momentous 20th film in the series.

The Dragon Ball movies began at the Toei Manga Festival in 1986.

They went on to produce numerous such beloved characters as “Coola”, “Broli”, “Bojack”, and “Janenba”.

After 2013 saw the premier of the first film in 17 years, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods (net gross 2.99 billion yen), the Dragon Ball world expanded even further with 2015’s Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection “F”(net gross 3.74 billion yen), leading to the TV anime Dragon Ball Super currently airing. As befits the 20th entry in a movie series that has continued to pursue even stronger characters and even more entertaining stories, this film is being diligently produced with the goal of having the greatest scale and quality of the series to date!

As was the case with the last movie, original author Akira Toriyama-sensei is in charge of the original work, script, and character designs, raising expectations even higher.

It looks like he’s already done more image illustrations than for any movie before, so we can’t wait for the film’s debut in December 2018!

And the theme for this movie is “the strongest warrior race in the universe, the Saiyans!” From Battle of Gods onward, Goku and co. have achieved new evolutions such as Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan Blue.

And so, it seems that this film depicts the “origin” of Goku and co.’s strength, the strength of the Saiyans, who remain the strongest warrior race in the universe even after all sorts of powerful warriors from throughout the universe have dauntlessly appeared.

Don’t take your eyes off the infinitely growing “Saiyans” or the infinitely evolving world of Dragon Ball!

Honestly, this get me pretty hyped up! As a long time fan of the series, I’ve often wondered what made these saiyans so damm strong and special in the universe and now we’ll get the answer. Not only that but we’ll finally get to see the legendary super saiyan, Yamoshi, who was the Saiyan that transformed into a Super Saiyan and was the Super Saiyan God in action.

On a personal level, I’d like to see a black saiyan somewhere in the movie. Make him a background character or something I don’t care, just show us a black saiyan and I’ll be happy.  Anyways, the movie is slated for a December 2018. Are you hyped for the movie? Let me know in the comments below!
