Upcoming Dragon Ball Super Movie “Super Hero” Release Date and Trailer
UPDATE: Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero has been delayed indefinitely. We will update this post when more information becomes available.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is coming out in Japan on April 22, 2022, with the North American release date set a little later in the summer. There is no exact date for the English dub at this time, but we will provide you with an update as soon as we learn more.
Everything We Know About “Super Hero”
Super Hero is set after Dragon Ball Super: Broly and appears to focus more on Gohan and Piccolo. While the last few Dragon Ball movies focused heavily on Vegeta and Goku, this one will give other characters a chance to shine.
Since the beginning, Goku has been fighting the Red Ribbon Army, which was thought to be destroyed after the Cell saga. However, the evil organization has been rebuilt and their new Androids are after Goku and his family.
Goten and Trunks will be seen as teenagers for the first time, and Pan might also be playing an important role in the story. Speaking of seeing things for the first time – Piccolo’s house is going to be seen in the movie as well!
New 3D Animation Style
This is going to be the first Dragon Ball movie to feature a 3D animation style, and from what we’ve seen in the trailers, it looks awesome! It’s similar to a video game, yet the anime art style is still true to Dragon Ball and it’s a good mix of animation.
The 3D animation effects will make the world around the characters appear more realistic, and this is definitely a movie you will want to watch on a big screen. Fight scenes are going to be epic, especially if they surpass the effects seen in Dragon Ball Super: Broly.
Will Gohan Shine Again?!?! Piccolo Gets a New Form!
Gohan hasn’t had an epic moment since his fight with Cell when he surpassed both Goku and Vegeta.
It’s unlikely that Gohan will surpass Goku’s Ultra Instinct, but when it comes to Gohan you never know what to expect. Still, it would be great if he could be the hero in this story, with Piccolo by his side. Gohan has used “Ultimate Form” in the past, and Piccolo will be using something similar in this movie.
Piccolo’s new form in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is called “Potential Unleashed”, and it was revealed in the trailer below. There will be a scene where Gohan and Piccolo team up to fight Androids Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 from the Red Ribbon Army.
If you haven’t watched Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball Super: Broly, then get caught up now! The effects in Broly were amazing compared to previous Dragon Ball movies, and we expect Super Hero to be even better.
