We recently told you about the imminent opening of a new official website for the Dragon Ball franchise. Well, that site has recently been active and perfectly accessible, as you can see for yourself by visiting it at this address.

The official announcement of the new Dragon Ball Super movie

They have been published, at the time of writing this article, very little information about it. For now, we only know that the film is being worked on and that its release is scheduled for 2022.

The news was then commented, as anticipated a little above, by the same creator of the series, Akira Toriyama, working on the Dragon Ball Super manga together with his colleague and collaborator Toyotaro. Here is Toriyama's message, followed by an Italian translation:

"A completely new movie since the release of Dragon Ball Super: Broly is currently in the works! Just like the first movie, I'm driving a lot of story and dialogue production for another spectacular movie. I really shouldn't be talking too much about the plot right now, but be prepared for some extreme and fun fights, which may show an unexpected character. We will chart a course through some uncharted territories in terms of visual aesthetics to take audiences on an amazing journey, so I hope everyone will be looking forward to the new film! "

It is also added that further information about it will soon be disclosed through the new official Dragon Ball website.

Dragon Ball Super's New Movie Will Feature Original Story

Dragon Ball Super's new movie will feature an original story from series creator Akira Toriyama. Dragon Ball Super: Broly brought the anime's run to an end a couple of years ago, and fans have been hoping to see the anime continue ever since. Making matters tougher, Dragon Ball Super's manga has been taking the series' story far beyond where the anime came to an end. Luckily, it won't be much longer until we see something new from the Dragon Ball Super anime as the franchise will be returning with a brand new feature film next year.

Announced during a special Goku Day celebration in Japan, Toei Animation has officially announced the next Dragon Ball Super movie will be releasing in 2022. Details are scarce about what this new movie will be about, but Toei Animation has confirmed via press release the movie will feature an original story, character designs, and even a screenplay straight from original series creator Akira Toriyama.

Serving as the second film in the Dragon Ball Super series following Dragon Ball Super: Broly, Toei Animation confirmed that planning for this film began back in 2018 (something that Toei Animation has alluded to in the past with a confirmation that a new project existed in the first place) with the goal of telling a 'large scale' story that series creator Akira Toriyama has developed himself.

Toriyama has developed the concept to the new film's story, original character designs, and even the lines of the film's script with the goal of somehow making this new film unlike anything in the series' history. Toriyama himself teased that while he couldn't give any concrete details about the plot, fans should be 'prepared for some extreme and entertaining bouts' that may feature an 'unexpected character.'

The film is teased to take the visual aesthetics of the franchise even further than the improvements made in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, and while there is no concrete look at the film just yet, seeing the first visual of the film with that kind of promise behind it makes it all the more enticing to see what's really next from this massive franchise. But what do you think?
