A new Dragon Ball movie is coming this year! While we do not have a whole lot of information to discuss just yet, what we do already have speaks volumes, both through its imagery and through the otherwise-expected names that are missing in the initial announcement round. Tune in for a quick analysis of Akira Toriyama’s comments and staff reveals, and what this could mean for the future of the franchise!

Episode #0436! Mike, Julian, and Ajay discuss the trickle of information reveals about the upcoming theatrical film set for release in December 2018. A series director from “Dragon Ball Super” (with plenty of experience external to this franchise, as well) steps up to direct the new film, while new blood steps up to oversee its animation and visual design. Notably missing from the staff announcement is Tadayoshi Yamamuro. Between these staff announcements and what Toriyama says in his own words, what does this mean for the future of the franchise?
