Friday, July 22, TBD | Hall H

Just one month prior to the theatrical release of Dragon Ball Super: SUPER HERO, join us for a Q&A with talent and production members, including Toshio Furukawa (Japanese Voice of Piccolo), Christopher R. Sabat (English Voice of Piccolo), Akio Iyoku (Executive Producer) and Norihiro Hayashida (Producer) for stories and insights from the film – and of course, giveaways and an exclusive look at approximately the first 20 minutes of the film only for fans at SDCC!

Previous major convention coverage for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero included an extensive virtual panel presented as a part of New York Comic Con last October.

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 is 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. Various international theatrical screenings for the film begin this August.
