Cedar Park, Texas - According to Funimation's Marshal Wright, there is a Dragon Ball Super film coming to the US and Canada. The rights have been acquired by Funimation and there are plans for a theatrical release in January 2019. Here's an excerpt from the original article on Funimation's website:
...Earth’s mightiest Saiyan Goku is set to return to U.S. and Canadian theaters with today’s announcement that Funimation® Films has acquired the theatrical rights to the new Dragon Ball Super movie, entitled “Dragon Ball Super: Broly This is the twentieth film in the Dragon Ball franchise and is based on the story, screenplay and character designs of original creator Akira Toriyama. As part of its distribution agreement with producer Toei Animation and the film’s international distributor Twentieth Century Fox, Funimation also secured the home entertainment, video on demand and broadcast rights to the film. This latest agreement builds on the 22-year long partnership between Toei Animation and Funimation, which has contributed to the global success and pop culture status of the Dragon Ball franchise. “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” is anticipated to release in January 2019. The theatrical dates for the film’s run will be announced later.
One of the biggest tidbits to come out about the new film is that it'll feature berserker Saiyan, Broly. While fans are excited about the continuation of the franchise and the new feature film; there are some who feel as if the villain being a familiar one (and a ultra-Mary Sue at that) was a bit of a disappointment. One things for sure, the number one Shonen in the game really seems to have picked up steam since the conclusion of the 'Super' series. We'll continue to follow the brand as more information becomes available. [LINK TO ORIGINAL ARTICLE HERE]
