Revealed during the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero panel at New York Comic Con, the first official clip for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero has arrived, and there is plenty to love for longtime fans off the shounen series!
Toei Animation hosted the panel, which showcased the clip and additional information for the film, which arrives in 2022. The footage teases Goku’s fight against “an evil organization moving in the shadows,” who appear to be targeting Goku, Vegeta and Pan.
Meanwhile, Piccolo and Pan, Gohan’s daughter, are said to play a big role in the plot. We also caught a glimpse of the young Saiyan learning to harness her power, and the panelists confirmed that her training will be a significant part of the film.
The clip also confirms that Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will be the first film in the franchise to be fully CGI-animated, and it appears to take influence from the original manga art style.
The panel also revealed additional detail on the film, including the name reveals of Gamma 1 and Gamma 2, the two caped characters revealed earlier this year. The timeline of the movie was also confirmed, and it is set 10 years after the defeat off Buu, which places it after the current arc of the Dragon Ball Super manga.
Dragon Ball Super: Broly, the last film released under the Super moniker, earned over $35 million in Japan’s box office and over $30 million in the United States, coming in at over $124 worldwide—which has left fans hyped for what’s next and what will unfold in the upcoming Super Hero release. Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will be released in Japan in 2022.
