Toei announced yesterday that a special advance ticket, labeled the “Super Movie Ticket” (超ムビチケ), will go on sale with normal advance ticket cards 04 March 2022 and be available for purchase up until the day prior to the movie’s premiere, 21 April 2022. This ticket will faithfully reproduce a normal movie ticket card, but on a super-sized scale, and printed on a large tarpaulin sheet with eyelets for hanging. While the normal ticket card size is 8.56 x 5.4 centimeters (3.4 x 2.1 inches), this “Super” ticket card will be 930 times larger by area at 2.4 x 1.8 meters (7.9 x 5.9 feet)! The ticket is available at the super-sized price of ¥13,710 (~$150; without tax), which covers the cost of a normal advance ticket, the tarp material, and printing. However, tickets are limited to two per order.
Those who place their orders by 13 March 2022 will receive their “Super” ticket in the mail around 14 April 2022, one week before the movie is released. A sticker with the purchase number will be placed on the back of tarps purchased during this time and can be used as a ticket for admittance to the movie. Tickets purchased past this cutoff will not include a sticker with ticket information, but this will instead be emailed for use at the theater. The “Super Movie Ticket” will be on display at theaters nationwide once the advance ticket purchasing window opens, so you can get a sense of its massive size in person.
The story, script, and character designs for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero are being crafted by original manga author Akira Toriyama. Shueisha’s executive producer Akio Iyoku has noted that the movie’s story will take place after the events in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, but before the 28th Tenka’ichi Budōkai, and feature the revival of the notorious Red Ribbon Army. The film’s director will be Tetsuro Kodama, who was most recently the CG Sequence Director for the Dragon Ball Super: Broly film, with Hoon Jung-jae taking over the CG Director role after being a CG effects artist in the preceding two films, Battle of Gods and Resurrection ‘F’. The film’s theatrical score will be composed by Naoki Satō and it has been noted that the Japanese cast recorded their lines in early October 2021. The movie is currently slated for release in Japan on 22 April 2022 and in North America in the summer of 2022, although no definitive release date has been set at this time.
