Here we go! A brand new animated Dragon Ball Z movie is making it’s way to Japanese theaters in the Spring of 2015! The news comes from the September issue of V-Jump magazine which reveals Akira Toriyama, the creator of Dragon Ball Z, brings his genius back once again with an original concept, screenplay and character designs for the movie. “The entire universe eagerly awaits!!”
The new Dragon Ball Z movie will be an animated film like it’s predecessor. Toriyama-sensei confirmed in the magazine it will have a new story, one he intended to have this during his manga’s original serialization. Although he did not plan on it, he is putting a lot of effort in drawing the art and “fussing over the smallest dialogue lines.” He also promised more action scenes and teased the story is still secret, but will be “utterly funny.”
Much work is going into the Z Warriors’ 2015 big screen release according to Toriyama-sensei and he is confident fans will be able to enjoy the movie. Toriyama-sensei even mentions his first manga editor praised him on the work he has done, even though he rarely ever does that!
Not much else is revealed, but the prospect of a new Dragon Ball Z movie is quite exciting! Nothing has been mentioned for an North America English dub at this point either, but we hope to keep you up-to-date with the latest right here on Anime Games Online!
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, the previous movie in the series, made it’s Japanese theatrical debut March 30, 2013. FUNimation, the North American licensor, has announced the movie will have over 350 theaters screening the English dubbed version of Battle of Gods throughout the United States and Canada in August of this year.
