Dragon Ball Z 2015 Film's 1st Teaser Streamed

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Dragon Ball Z animation director Tadayoshi Yamamuro will direct the new movie

The teaser for the 2015 Dragon Ball Z film is now streaming. The footage premiered on Fuji TV's morning program Mezamashi TV on Tuesday.

The new anime film project was announced in the September issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine. 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!!" The movie will open during the Golden Week string of holidays next spring, and a recent flyer revealed that Dragon Ball Z animation director Tadayoshi Yamamuro will direct the new movie.

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 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 "fussing over the smallest dialogue lines," and he also promised more action scenes. He teased that the story is still secret, but will be "utterly funny."

To emphasize the effort he has put into this new film, Toriyama said that even his first manga editor praised him on the work he has done, even though this editor rarely ever does that. Toriyama is confident that fans will be able to thoroughly enjoy the movie. He is currently drawing up new character designs, and asked his fans to look forward to the movie.
