Following the appearance of recent online retailer listings, a new banner across the pre-order page of FUNimation’s online store lists a 16 April 2019 release date for the home video (DVD, Blu-ray, and digital) version of the recent Dragon Ball Super: Broly theatrical film. The film is still screening in theaters internationally, and no Japanese home video release has been announced as of yet.

Ignoring special preview screenings in both the east and west for all of the films, the following overview provides a complete list of theatrical screening and home video release dates for the three major films released since 2013; assuming the April release date for Broly holds true, this would mark the fastest turnaround from a film’s original Japanese theatrical debut to its American home video release:
