posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
A new flyer for next year's Dragon Ball Z movie revealed that animation director Tadayoshi Yamamuro (Dragon Ball Z TV, multiple DBZ films) will direct the new feature. The flyer was distributed at the Jump Victory Carnival on Saturday. The film's official website also launched with an image of the dragon Shenron and the tagline "The worst wish in history. That is the beginning of despair."
The September issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine announced on Saturday that a new Dragon Ball Z movie will open during the Golden Week string of holidays next spring. Dragon Ball manga creator Akira Toriyama is personally credited with the original concept, screenplay and character designs of the new movie "that the entire universe eagerly awaits!!"
Toriyama confirmed in the magazine that this new film, like last year's Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, will tell a new story. He had intends to write this story as if it were a continuation of manga's original serialization. Although he did not plan on it, he is not only putting a lot of effort in drawing the art, but also "fussing over the smallest dialogue lines." He also promised more action scenes. He teased that the story is still secret, but will be "utterly funny." He is currently drawing up new character designs, and asked his fans to look forward to the movie.
