2018 Dragon Ball Film

Post by DragonBalllKaiHD » Fri Dec 15, 2017 11:14 pm

Here's the quote from Toei USA website:
Dragon Ball’s 20th feature film has been revealed! Today, news of the film was announced at Jump Festa 2018 in Japan. The film is currently in production, which will serve as a commemoration for decades of legendary titles. Since 1986, the series has introduced many memorable and beloved characters to countless die-hard fans. The recent years have witnessed a new wave of renaissance for the Dragon Ball series. “Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods”, released in 2013, was a welcomed return to the big screen for the first time in 17 years. “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F” followed that up with more success in 2015. From then on, Dragon Ball has continued to further expand their world; leading to the current acclaimed broadcast, “Dragon Ball Super”.

The team behind the new film will be making intensive efforts to ensure that the scale and the quality is the best of the series. Akira Toriyama, the original author of Dragon Ball, will lead the original story, screenplay, and character design.

The theme for this remarkable new film will be “Saiyan”, the strongest race in the universe. Since “Battle of the Gods”, Goku has undergone new forms from Super Saiyan God to Super Saiyan Blue to other evolved forms that have gone up against many invincible warriors from multiple universes.  This new story will focus on the origin of the Saiyans’ strength and what it means to be Saiyan.

The 20th Dragon Ball film is currently targeted to be released in Japan in December 2018. Keep an eye out for more news in the near future!
The official website for the newly announced film is now open.

But now I wonder... Will this movie have the title of Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z or Dragon Ball Super?

A saiyan lore movie is way better than seeing vegeta go to another universe planet sadala and act like he gives such a crap about his race despite killing one of the last 3 members left and trying to kill the other one.

Probably not in Sadla, but in the Universe 6.

The retellings don't make BoG and RoF less 'canon' in the anime continuity.
The fact that SSG Goku was around 70% of Beerus in the Movie while not anywhere close in the anime puts that statement into question.

It could be both actually.

I don't see the issue we could still assume Beerus was lying like he did it on Super

He did give a crap just because he killed nappa didn't mean anything especially when nappa tried to kill goku.

maybe but going to u6 wouldn't make sense to learn about u7 saiyan history although u6 saiyan history could be explored but considering they had never heard of super saiyan it makes you wonder if they ever had anything

Why do they call it the 20th Dragonball movie? Are they counting the 4 Dragonball movies?

Correct. There were three Dragon Ball films, thirteen Dragon Ball Z films, another Dragon Ball film, and then the recent two Toriyama-penned films.

It wasn't directly stated but goku had surpassed ssg by a lot with ssb and freeza was far stronger than him and even he was scared shitless of beerus.

if ssg goku was 70% of beerus then ssb if even twice as strong as ssg would be beyond beerus and golden freeza beyond that

Good point, but I wonder will they show primitive Saiyans that resided in Planet Sadla from U7? And how they destroyed they own homeworld and got into Planet Tuffle? I think I could be interested in that :think:

He was actually approximately 60% of Beerus, according to Toriyama; 70% comes from Whis stating that it has been a while since Beerus was pushed to use 70% of his power. While I disagree with your interpretation, I respect your opinion; thank you for elaborating!

The gap is widened even further in the anime.

Dragon Ball had four films and Dragon Ball Z had fifteen.
