TOEI ANIMATION MAKES SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEW “DRAGON  BALL SUPER” MOVIE IN 2022 

13 May - 2021

Akira Toriyama has worked passionately to create a Dragon Ball movie unlike any other

Fans worldwide received a special surprise this Goku Day, the annual Dragon Ball celebration,  when Toei Animation revealed today that a new “Dragon Ball Super” movie will be released in 2022. The Dragon Ball  phenomena began in 1984 when Japan’s well-known manga from Akira Toriyama premiered in Shueisha’s “Weekly  Shonen Jump” – becoming a top ranked title throughout its 10 and a half years of publication. Since then, the  manga’s popularity has continued to grow with an astonishing record of 260 million copies sold worldwide and  counting. And with Dragon Ball’s ever-increasing popularity, it has expanded beyond manga to include TV animation,  movies, games and merchandising. Now 37 years after the launch of the original manga, Dragon Ball continues to  evolve and will reach new heights starting with this new large-scale movie. #DBSuperMovie 

The new release will be the second film based on “Dragon Ball Super,” the manga title and the anime series which  launched in 2015. The first such movie was the 2018 release “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” which was a smash hit with  audiences – setting a worldwide box office record of over $120 million. 

Planning for the new film project was kicked-off in 2018, before the release of “Dragon Ball Super: Broly,” with the  goal of telling a large-scale story that would build on the enthusiastic response for the previous theatrical series and  the current global fervor for “Broly.” Akira Toriyama himself has picked up his pen to deliver a fascinating story that  fans desire. From the magnificent story composition to character design to the lines of the script, Toriyama has  worked passionately with the greatest attention to detail and highest quality standards – creating a Dragon Ball  movie unlike any other in its history and one that will surely be a blockbuster with fans.
