Following several full-length trailers for the film, Toei Animation and Bandai Namco have released two more promotional videos for the forthcoming Dragon Ball Super: Broly theatrical film: one highlighting the film’s main theme song, and the other formally unveiling a (widely-speculated and assumed) character seen in the film’s climactic battle.
The film’s main theme song — “Blizzard” by Daichi Miura — is currently available on digital purchase and streaming platforms, with a formal CD single release planned for next month. We recently added the song’s lyrics to our archive.
The fusion character Gogeta originally debuted in 1995’s twelfth Dragon Ball Z film, The Rebirth of Fusion!! Goku and Vegeta, just a couple months after Vegetto’s appearance during the manga’s original serialization (where he was seemingly also slated to be named “Gogeta”). The character later reappeared for a single episode in the Dragon Ball GT television series in Super Saiyan 4 form.
Earlier this year, Toei Animation screened the eighth Dragon Ball Z film (the first of the original three Broli films) as well as a double feature of the twelfth Dragon Ball Z film and the Bardock television special in America. Elements from all of these features have been reworked into an original story by series creator Akira Toriyama for this year’s forthcoming film.
The story, script, and character designs for the film, formally opening nationwide in Japan 14 December 2018 in 2D, IMAX, and MX4D, are crafted by original manga author Akira Toriyama. The film is directed by Tatsuya Nagamine, and features animation supervision by Naohiro Shintani along with art direction by Kazuo Ogura. The film will receive international distribution following its Japanese debut. A world premiere was held 14 November 2018 at Nippon Budōkan with special guests including Masako Nozawa, Ryō Horikawa, Ryūsei Nakao, Bin Shimada, Katsuhisa Hoki, Tatsuya Nagamine, and Daichi Miura.
