Super Hero movie to theatres this Summer

[ad_1]

Crunchyroll has finally confirmed that they will bring Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero anime movie to theatres outside Japan this Summer.

There are only a handful of franchises that have the history that the Dragon Ball series boasts and there are even fewer franchises that can maintain its success over four decades!

There had been some concerns that the next instalment to the series’ already extensive list of theatrical films, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, movie could miss theatres outside Japan entirely following the hacking of Toei Animation.

However, all concerns have now been put to rest with Crunchyroll confirming that they will bring the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie to theatres around the world.

Crunchyroll confirms licensing of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero

Yesterday, May 10th, Crunchyroll finally confirmed that they will be bringing the upcoming Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero anime movie to theatres outside Japan this Summer.

In a press statement, the platform shared that the “movie will be released across the globe in both subtitled and dubbed formats in North America, Latin America, Europe, Australia/New Zealand, Africa, the Middle East and Asia (excluding Japan).”

Unfortunately, a more specific release date for the international theatrical launch has not yet been shared by Crunchyroll, but the platform did note that more information will be shared soon.

The movie was originally meant to premiere in Japan on April 22nd, 2022, but was sadly delayed until June 11th because the internal networks at Toei Animation were hacked earlier this year.

What is the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie about?

The upcoming Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie is a sequel to the Broly movie from 2018 and will focus on The Red Ribbon Army; an evil organisation that Goku had previously destroyed in the main anime series.

However, the organisation has been reformed by a group of people who have been able to create new and improved Androids – beings that are going to give our heroes one of their toughest fights to date.

“The Red Ribbon Army was once destroyed by Son Goku. Individuals, who carry on its spirit, have created the ultimate Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. These two Androids call themselves “Super Heroes”. They start attacking Piccolo and Gohan… What is the New Red Ribbon Army’s objective? In the face of approaching danger, it is time to awaken, Super Hero!” – Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero preview synopsis, via Crunchyroll News.  

The film will also be the first instalment of the iconic franchise to be produced predominantly using 3DCG animations.
