Following up the release of a teaser trailer for the upcoming Dragon Ball Super film, Toei Animation recently revealed the film’s villain, official title, and an accompanying poster.

Titled Dragon Ball Super: Broly, the movie will pick up where the tv series left off and center around a fateful meeting between Goku, Vegeta and The Legendary Super Saiyan, Broly. Serving as the 20th Dragon Ball film, along with bringing the Broly character into canon, the latest adventure for Goku and friends explores Frieza’s army and the history of Saiyans. Dragon Ball Super: Broly will begin screening in Japan on December 14 with an accompanying global release on the same day currently in the works. Stay tuned for more details when they become available.

Everyone, do you know who Broly is?
He appeared only in past anime films, and is a ridiculously strong Saiyan. I am told I only drew his design; at that time I was mostly uninvolved with the anime, and so I completely forgot the details.

Even now it seems Broly is still very popular not just in Japan, but overseas as well, and because of that, the supervisors suggested, “Why don’t we make the movie about Broly this time?”

At that time I was shown the film, and I felt that it would become really interesting depending on how it’s arranged, so we started talking immediately about including [Broly] into the Dragon Ball Super series.

In order to not disappoint Broly fans, I was conscious of Broly’s past image, while also giving him new aspects, and I think he ended up as a fascinating Broly.

Of course, the film won’t just show amazing battles — it will also show what kind of fate Goku, Vegeta, and Broly will follow when they meet; how the Frieza Army is connected; and the history of the Saiyans — the content of the film is dramatic and has a huge scale.

That greatest Saiyan, Broly, appears!
There will be lots of other content that will be included for all the fans, so please look forward to it and wait a little longer until it is complete!!
