Crunchyroll has announced upcoming international screenings for the new theatrical film Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, kicking off 18 August 2022 in Australia, New Zealand, and much of the Spanish-speaking Americas, followed by additional dates in various other territories, including the United States on 19 August 2022.
Kanzenshuu has independently followed up with Crunchyroll to confirm that screenings of the film in its original Japanese language with accompanying English subtitles will be available — in addition to English dubbed screenings — specifically within the United States of America. This is notable, as it was not the case with the three most recent films (Battle of Gods, Resurrection ‘F’, and Broly), even when subtitled screenings were in fact available outside of America.

The story, script, and character designs for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero were crafted by original manga author Akira Toriyama. Shueisha’s executive producer Akio Iyoku noted that the movie’s story takes place after the events in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, but before the 28th Tenka’ichi Budōkai, and features the revival of the notorious Red Ribbon Army. The film’s director ia 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 is composed by Naoki Satō. The movie was released in Japan on 11 June 2022, following a delay decided upon in conjunction with a Toei network hack.
