Goku has already beaten Jiren and got new, unique transformation. They can't let him get another one, while Vegeta didn't even get UI.
I think Vegeta will have a huge role considering he is a popular character and the second main character of Super.
Yeah, I hope so. I don't want to jump the gun already, but I hope it won't be something like BOG where Vegeta only takes spectator seat.

That would be horrible if that happens again.

Well, it's a Saiyan. This guy:

Don't really know anything about him except that he has torn purple pants and some kind of purple aura, but with all the dark energy power ups flying around in that game it's hard to say if that's his normal power.

TOEI wants to maximize its profits and so, getting foreign dubs prepared for the next Dragon Ball is an excellent idea for a worldwide release.

I love that this DB movie will have a Classic Dragon Ball-feel to it given Son's original outfit, that Broli-like character and all and heck, I hope they bring back CHA LA HEAD CHA LA to be the opening of this flick. :)

Toriyama already said it takes place after super.
Maybe the Super Dragon Balls get used to reverse time to fix Jiren's past? Goku even has his nyoibo again, which he no longer has a need for and we haven't seen since the beginning of Z.
That's just on the KV, remember it's not always indicative of the actual content.

My next opponent has an interesting design. Hope I'll transform into Ultra Instinct, though. Refreshing to finally get to move a bit more.

Vegeta has been very important since BOG so there's no reason to think anything will change here. Goku will still be the main lead though.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

He'll probably give lots of exposition for the new villain!

You want a new form ? don't you have enough. :wtf:

Speaking of forms, do you think Vegeta will have his "royal blue" form he has in the current arc ? the reaosn I ask is because it's most likely a none Toriyama form.

Yes, I do believe he will have SSGSS: Evolution. But I'll always have more forms. Always.

Don't get your hopes up, Kakaroth, I'll be the one to defeat this opponent!
Vegeta! We can get even stronger!
Of course! A Saiyan's strenght has no limits!

This most likely isn't from the movie as the last 2 movies teasers weren't. He may have been acting like that to show the way the animation moves as it's a new style.
That's the vibe I'm getting too, trying to show the emphasis on the new change.

But anyway, a Saiyan huh? Well that's a bit disappointing, we just had Black. But it does make sense given they said the movie would be about Saiyans.
Black was Zamasu in Goku’s body, not a ‘real Saiyan’.

Anyway, I’m getting a One Piece movie six vibe. Namely they’re going for a less detailed style for more fluid animation. It will take time, but I will grow into it.

Goku barely took a backseat in the Buu saga, at best he took a leisurely stroll round back while everyone else cried for him to come back.

As for our villain, I don think its Yamoshi. He was stated to have become a Super Saiyan but was good. Also as far as we know he was only a normal ss and later gave rise to SSG.

This person, and this is pure speculation on my part, is what Vegeta talked about when he saw Kale's Legendary Form. He is the true origin of Super Saiyans, The Original Legendary Super Saiyan!
You dumped Jiren for the new hotness already? Forshame.

Not familiar with Pokémon for years, but after a quick search, I'm not sure how that's a positive. It looks cheap.
The amount of detail in any given frame has nothing to do with budget. It's not as if throwing more money at a project will suddenly give their digital coloring tools more colors to work with. And anyway, it's easy to look at stills of the series and say that it looks bad, but the thing is... it looks fantastic in motion.

Difference is that the SM designs are a vast departure from anything that came before it to the point that, without the actual Pokémon, you wouldn't even be able to tell it's the same show.

This movie's art style seems like a good blend of the old with the new.

I like the fluid animation, I really do, but...

Shintani's art for Goku just doesn't click with me. I myself don't care for Yamamuro's modern art for too much and I am all in for a change in art direction, but did it have to be so drastic? I mean it is better than Yamamuro's but the eyes, cheeks and nose look way too soft for my tastes. But then again: It is a teaser.

They could've tried to re-discover Yamamuro's Saiyan Invasion / Namek / Frieza character art and go from there. It should have been a lot simpler to draw and animate than Yamamuro's modern style with strict anatomy and shadings. DBZ art was so expressive with the exaggerated muscle tones and contortions.

But I guess I'll take what I can get.
