As i said, as long as It's not all-CGI, I'll be happy :D

The Dragonboxes are like a middle aged woman who still looks good through simply taking good care of her skin and body with maybe a tiny bit of makeup while the Orange Bricks are like a middle aged woman who get's 50 tons of botox, makeup and plastic surgery in order to look younger and as a result looks even worse. ~ ringworm128

They're probably saving everything about this for Piccolo day.
Piccolo day?
Apparently May 9th is Piccolo day, anyway there was supposed to be a big announcement on that day, so I think TOEI just couldn't hold in and announced it now and they'll probably show all the promo stuff on May 9th then.

Yeah, it's all starting to come together, now. The mutliverse may be explored with more depth in DBS.
Yup, I remember saying in the RF thread it will be hard to explore these 11 universe in movie format and it would be better suited to a tv series looks like I may have been right.

It's fake. I know the guy on DA who drew it. He's awesome.

He's probably referring to the Bardock special. Zarbon was the one who first recommended destroying Planet Vegeta because the saiyans were rapidly growing in strength.
It was actually Beerus disguised as Zarbon #StayWoke
Herms wrote:The fact that the ridiculous power inflation is presented so earnestly makes me just roll my eyes and snicker. Like with Freeza, where he starts off over 10 times stronger than all his henchmen except Ginyu (because...well, just because), then we find out he can transform and get even more powerful, and then he reveals he can transform two more times, before finally coming out with the fact that he hasn't even been using anywhere near 50% of his power. Oh, and he can survive in the vacuum of space. All this stuff is just presented as the way Freeza is, without even an attempt at rationalizing it, yet the tone dictates we're supposed to take all this silly grasping at straws as thrilling danger. So I guess I don't really take the power inflation in the Boo arc seriously, but I don't take the power inflation in earlier arcs seriously either, so there's no net loss of seriousness. I think a silly story presented as serious is harder to accept than a silly story presented as silly.

Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone's twitter accounts posted the news about this. Found that interesting.

I can’t say the prospect of watching DBZ week-to-week isn’t interesting. One of the main things I wonder is how the original readers of DB way back reacted to Toriyama’s shenanigans.

THE BOYHOOD DREAM HAS COME TRUE

Seriously. I, like most of you, got into DBZ just as GT concluded in Japan. Given its popularity, I just assumed Dragon Ball AF was a real thing, and new episodes of Dragon Ball would be coming out of Japan, steady. I mean, why not?

18 years later, the dream has come true. I should probably temper expectations, but right now I choose to get hype.

First time posting here!

As everyone else I'm fuckin' excited for this.
I have been waiting all my life for a new DB series. I've been an HUGE fan of DBZ since I was a child.

What I hope for this new series is that it stays true to itself.
I have faith in Akira Toriyama, and I can't wait to see it. Being from Italy I hope it makes it here.

I would like if they explore the 12 universes. Well it would make no sense if they don't.
My guess is AT had it in mind since BoG, or it would be stupid for Beerus to mention the 12 universes if we are never seeing anything of them.
So they gave us the two movies for a "Sneak Peek" and to see how much money to put in this new serie and if Dragon Ball was still loved worldwide.
So now that both movies have been a success, I really think they will try making the best out of Dragon Ball Super.
DB is a COLOSSAL franchise, it can make them SO MUCH fricking money, they won't waste this chance.
Expect many high budget videogames, toys and so more to be released next years. Finally we will see really good DB games as I'm totally sure those are going to sell REALLY good. Maybe I'm too optimist but if Super turns out to be really good, its videogames could become top sellers like COD, expecially if they are really well done.
