So far nothing animation related has been leaked. Ajay did say something about character sheets when Goku day failed but that was about it.
Besides the genga, we've just been taking their words for it so far.
My bad then, from what he mentioned I understood that he was shown more stuff.

Welp, apparently it wasn’t even the main in-house staff who gave this 2uper info. It was the Toei Phils folk. Do with that what ya’ll will.
So......the info came from people that were not in Japan and people considered it reliable because it came from Toei?
This explains a lot, but it also shows that even when it comes to a source that would be credible unless it's from Japan, there is a lot of room for miscommunication and misinformation.
Yeah, they are a source for official information, but there are a ton of cases of people from other regions getting stuff wrong for a number of possible reasons.
Also, if this is all a ploy to get people leaking information, it points to something big happening behind the scenes that they don't want coming out, no?
The closest example that comes to mind is the whole rumors about Nintendo giving false leads to leakers because they wanted their new announcements to stop being revealed before they could do it themselves.
If Toei did something like that, it means that they don't want information about their next projects spreading, regardless of what it is and when it will come out.
But other than their biggest series like Dragon Ball and One Piece, would there be that many people be poking for information about other series outside from Japan for Toei to want to completely shut down any leaks?
