When I saw reports of this movie earlier I ignored it because I was thinking this was a way to make a buck by releasing a few episodes from the show again as a “movie” (ie Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F and Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods). But this is a re-telling of a previous movie back in 1993 Dragon Ball Z: Broly -The Legendary Super Saiyan. Continuing after the events of the Tournament of Power, Goku is recovering and trying to continue to increase his strength. He will soon get a chance to put that to the test as he will be facing one of the most powerful warriors of his Saiyan race.
Coming off of the hype of the Tournament of Power, Toei Animation is looking to splash a little paint on a 25 year old story. With the emergence of new fans of the show this will be a way to deeply explore the race of the Saiyans and the impact that the destruction of their world has had on the survivors. So look for this to drop at the end of the year in Japan and the start of the year here in America.
