It appears that FUNimation plans to give Dragon Ball Z movie 12 (“Fusion Reborn”) a theatrical release in select theaters.
FUNimation has actually created a new website (“FUNimation Films“) for the purpose of “spreading the word”:
FUNimation Films is here and fans will find a great new way to enjoy their anime. Starting March 2006, you’ll be able to catch FUNimation’s biggest hits on the screen in feature length movies as well as special previews of the hottest series to come out of Japan before their DVD release. Each month will bring you a new movie or series premiere at your local theater. You’ll get the chance to get all your friends together to enjoy anime on the big screen!
FUNimation Films will be going nationwide in March at select theaters starting with a double feature of Dragon Ball Z Fusion Reborn and Dragon Ball Z The Return of Cooler. Following that, fans will get the opportunity to catch a sneak peek of the upcoming series Basilisk in April. Our first three months on the big screen will also feature Trinity Blood in May.
To help spread the word about anime on the big screen, FUNimation Films will be working with Operation Anime. If you’re involved with a club and want to get involved, make sure you’re a part!
So there you have it. It is a little late notice from FUNimation, but as soon as we know which theaters will be playing the movie, we will let you know. Thanks to Blitzen from the forum for letting us know about this.
