It is officially Saturday in Japan, and Jump’s countdown to the official announcement of the new Dragon Ball Z movie slated for 30 March 2013 has come to end! The countdown site itself now provides some minor information about the movie and links to Toei Animation’s official site for the movie. However, there is not much on the official site at the moment. All the information available is the same as that leaked earlier in the week, including main staff information, the premiere date, and numerous companies associated with the films production (Fox International Productions Japan, Shueisha, Fuji TV, Toei Animation, Bandai, Bandai Namco Games, and Bird Studio).
The news post simply asks readers to check Weekly Shōnen Jump No. 33 (on sale today) for a special comment from creator Akira Toriyama, which we translated earlier this week from the prior leak.
The new site also features some nice character art layered on top of each other:
We will of course be keeping a close eye on the site for any further developments and news concerning this grand theatrical adventure for Dragon Ball fans everywhere!
There’s also a bigger image of Goku and one of Shenlong. Just press F5 on the website, it has two versions.
Kinda funny how the image thumbnails focus on certain characters’ crotches… 😆
