New Dragon Ball Z film slated for 2015

New Dragon Ball Z film slated for 2015
  • On July 16, 2014

Goku and the Z Fighters are returning yet again for another stand-alone feature-length animated film, and I can’t say I’m exactly surprised. According to the September issue of V-Jump, Akira Toriyama has credited himself with the concept, screenplay, and character designs of this new ambitious project, stating that he has plans to write it as a continuation to the original manga serialization. Interestingly, he also stated that he has not only put a lot of effort into drawing the art, but he’s been “fussing over the smallest dialogue lines.” Other comments he made is that the story will remain a mystery and that people will find it “utterly funny.” best casino reviews Toriyama said that the film is to have more action segments, presumably in regards to the previous film.


This hardly comes as a shock as primary antagonist of 2013’s “DBZ: Battle of the Gods,” Beerus (or Bills… but let’s not get into that whole debate), comments on the existence of 12 multiverses, with Beerus himself being the God of Destruction of the 7th. Much to Goku’s surprise, Beerus also comments on Goku being the second strongest opponent he had ever faced, and then hints that his attendant is also superior in strength as well as his martial arts mentor. With a heightened multiverse, we are sure to be given heightened threats; with much of the information coming at the tail end of the movie, I couldn’t imagine Toriyama leaving this tease unfulfilled.


Nevertheless, we seem to be getting a lot more Dragon Ball Z content these last few years. For reference, Dragon Ball Z’s original Japanese run was 1989 – 1996, and the non-canonical Dragon Ball: GT running from 1996 – 1997. In just the last five years, we’ve had two feature-length animated films and a half-hour special and now this new DBZ film in the works! What does that mean for the future of our bravest Z Warriors? What does “utterly funny” mean next to my “heightened threat” theory? Do you even still care about DBZ and all of its shout-y rubbish? Discuss in the comments!

I consider myself… someone who’s watched a lot of anime, and then got hired by DePapers to write reviews about them.

    Watched it last year. Don’t think I’d go see it in theaters just for the dub though. Was much better than the last movie!
