As sad as it is to say, there are just a couple episodes remaining in Dragon Ball Super. Just because the TV anime is coming to an end doesn’t mean the saga itself is over, though. There’s still the movie to look forward to, and the official website has the tentatively-titled Dragon Ball Super anime film set to open in Japan on December 14.
One Piece Film Z‘s Tatsuya Nagamine is directing the feature, which has a script and character designs by Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama. Naohiro Shintani serves as animation director, and Kazuo Ogura is on board as art director.
While we wait for more info, Toriyama had a few comments to make about the film. The story will take place after the current anime’s Tournament of Power arc, and will feature “previously unwritten details about the Saiyans and Frieza, as well as a long-awaited strong opponent to over come.”
Toriyama added that Toyotarō’s popular Dragon Ball Super manga will continue, and is expected to have have developments that make it different from the TV anime and movie.
Here’s the new visual for what will be the 20th Dragon Ball movie:
It says, “‘Super movie version, begins.”
