Published by 12 April 2015, 8:31 AM EDT

Initial attendees of the upcoming film, Dragon Ball Z: Revival of “F”, in Japan will receive a slew of bonus items at the theater, including a special Dragon Ball Volume “F”. New media articles in Japan have revealed the volume’s cover art, which is a play on the original art for Volume 41 of the collected manga:


The “Jump Comics Godliest Edition” volume is not advertised to contain any actual comics, but is instead set to compile the complete script of the film, along with “inside stories” on the script, conceptual material with Toriyama’s comments, and his commentary on the film itself. As this booklet will touch on the plot of the film in detail, the packaging advises attendees not to open it until after seeing the film.

The story for Revival of “F”, opening nationwide in Japan 18 April 2015 in 2D and IMAX 3D, is being crafted by original manga author Akira Toriyama, who stated he is writing it, “…as though it were a continuation of the manga when it was in serialization,” and that while it will, “…of course be a continuation of the previous Battle of Gods,” he has also, “…deliberately increased the amount of action scenes by a good deal.” Tadayoshi Yamamuro, who worked for many years as character designer and animation supervisor on the Dragon Ball franchise, will serve as the film’s director and animation supervisor. Norihito Sumitomo will return from Battle of Gods and the Majin Boo arc of Dragon Ball Kai for musical composition duties. Momoiro Clover Z will contribute a song alongside Maximum the Hormone, whose “F” will be used as a “battle song” during the film. Revival of “F” is set to bring back Freeza and will also include two new characters (Sorbet and Tagoma), feature Beerus and Whis again from Battle of Gods, and much more.
