Film opened in Japan on Friday

Toei began streaming three television commercials for the Dragon Ball Super: Broly film on Friday.

The film had its world premiere event at Nippon Budokan on November 14 and opened in Japan on December 14. The English dub had its world premiere at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood on December 13, and the film will open in the United States and Canada on January 16. The film has 4DX screenings in Japan.

Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama wrote the script and designed the characters. Tatsuya Nagamine (One Piece Film Z) directed the film, Naohiro Shintani served as animation director, and Kazuo Ogura served as art director. Norihito Sumitomo composed the music, Rumiko Nagai was the color designer, Naotake Oota was in charge of special effects, and Kai Makino was the CG director. Toei is distributing the film in collaboration with 20th Century Fox. Daichi Miura performed the film's theme song "Blizzard."

Bin Shimada returned to the role of Broly for the film, and Katsuhisa Houki joined the cast as Paragus. The film adds two original characters: Cheelai (voiced by Nana Mizuki) and Lemo (voiced by Tomokazu Sugita).

Vic Mignogna and Dameon Clarke returned as the English voices of Broly and Paragus, respectively, and Chris Ayres played Frieza. Other English dub cast members include Emily Neves as Gine (Goku's mother), Erica Lindbeck as Cheelai, Bruce Carey as Lemo, Veronica Taylor as Berryblue, and Sonny Franks as Kikono.

The film's story will take place after the events of the Dragon Ball Super television anime. The Dragon Ball Super manga is skipping the film's story, but the film received a novel adaptation on December 14.
