Broly is heading to the "Super" universe.
Months ago, Toei Animation revealed that they were working on a Dragon Ball Super movie that would be released in December. A trailer for the film revealed Goku training for battle, but little else about the movie was known. Until now. A poster for the film was leaked online yesterday, and now Toei Animation and Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama have confirmed Dragon Ball Super: Broly will be the name of the upcoming movie.
Broly has been a fan favorite in the Dragon Ball series since he was introduced in 1993. He was never made canon though, and only appeared in one-off movies. It looks like that is about to change though, since the legendary Super Saiyan is set to join the "Super" universe. Akira Toriyama released a statement via Toei Animation about Dragon Ball Super: Broly that should get fans pumped for the new film. "Everyone, are you familiar with Broly? He’s an incredibly strong Saiyan who only appeared in the old anime movies," began Toriyama. "I hear these days, he’s still very popular not only in Japan, but also overseas. Based on that, my editor suggested we have Broly appear in this next movie. I went ahead and watched the movies from back then, and I felt this could be quite interesting once I got right to work trying my hand at a story that incorporates him into the Dragon Ball Super series. While keeping in mind Broly’s classic image so fondly in the more fascinating Broly." Check out the new poster below and get ready for Dragon Ball Super: Broly which hits theaters on December 14.
