Toei Announces Network Hack Will Delay the Release of “Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero” Theatrical Film
Published by 18 March 2022, 12:52 PM EDT

In a new official statement from the company, Toei has announced that — due to a network hack that occurred earlier this month — the release of the forthcoming Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero theatrical film has been delayed indefinitely from its original release date of 22 April 2022. No new release date has been determined at this time.

4月22日(金)より全国公開を予定しておりました映画『ドラゴンボール超 スーパーヒーロー』について、既報のとおり製作会社である東映アニメーションにおいて第三者によるネットワークへの不正アクセスが発生し、作品製作が困難な事態となりました。そのため、公開を延期せざるを得ない状況となったことをお知らせいたします。公開を楽しみにして頂いている皆様には、大変申し訳ございません。新しい公開日については、近日中に発表させて頂きますので、今しばらくお待ち下さい。何卒ご理解頂けますようお願い申し上げます。


Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero was previously set to be released nationwide on Friday, April 22nd. However, as has been previously reported, the movie’s production company Toei Animation experienced a network breach by a third party, which caused issues in the movie’s production. Therefore, we are announcing that the movie’s release must be postponed. We deeply apologize to all who were looking forward to its release. A new release date will be announced in the near future, so we ask for your patience. We appreciate your understanding.

To those who have purchased advance tickets, they will still be valid starting from the new release date, so please be sure to hold on to them.

Various other items associated with the film, such as forthcoming novelizations, will almost certainly likewise see delays, though these delays have yet to be announced/confirmed.

Also attributed to the network hack, various television programs produced by Toei Animation currently on the air are seeing re-runs of previous episodes for the foreseeable future.
