The title of the new “Dragon Ball Super” film (to be released in 2022) has been announced as “Dragon Ball: Super Hero”. Along with this announcement, the latest visual of Son Goku and a special video have been released.

The title of the film, “Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero” was announced during the online event of “Sandiego Comic-Con”, one of the world’s largest pop-culture festivals.
After the title was announced, Nozawa Masako (the voice of Son Goku) and Shueisha’s Inou Akio (the executive producer of the film), and Toei Animation’s Hayashida Norihiro (the producer of the film), who were participating in a panel discussion reacted to the title with “Super Hero” in addition to “Super”, giving a sense of anticipation. “It’s just as the title says!!” (Nozawa), “It’s so great that it has two super’s!” (Inou), and “Who’s going to be in this film and what kind of new character will appear in this Super, Super Hero?! Please look forward to it!” (Hayashida).

Also, following the previous film “Dragon Ball Super: Broly”, Toriyama Akira, the original author, worked on the script. Inou commented with confidence, “I think it’s safe to say that this is one of the biggest involvements ever!”. There was a lot of back-and-forth with Toriyama, right down to the minor changes to the lines in the script, and Inou emphasized that “I’m sure he (Toriyama) is proud about this film as his masterpiece!” Hayashida also commented about Toriyama’s enthusiasm, “He gives us new challenges in the anime every time.”

The film “Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero” will be in nationwide theaters in 2022.
