The film opened in Japan on December 14. Original manga creator Akira Toriyama provided a comment for the film:
Everyone, do you know who Broly is?
He appeared only in past anime films, and is a ridiculously strong Saiyan. I am told I only drew his design; at that time I was mostly uninvolved with the anime, and so I completely forgot the details.
Even now it seems Broly is still very popular not just in Japan, but overseas as well, and because of that, the supervisors suggested, "Why don't we make the movie about Broly this time?"
At that time I was shown the film, and I felt that it would become really interesting depending on how it's arranged, so we started talking immediately about including [Broly] into the Dragon Ball Super series.
In order to not disappoint Broly fans, I was conscious of Broly's past image, while also giving him new aspects, and I think he ended up as a fascinating Broly.
Of course, the film won't just show amazing battles — it will also show what kind of fate Goku, Vegeta, and Broly will follow when they meet; how the Frieza Army is connected; and the history of the Saiyans — the content of the film is dramatic and has a huge scale.
That greatest Saiyan, Broly, appears!
There will be lots of other content that will be included for all the fans, so please look forward to it and wait a little longer until it is complete!!
Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama wrote the script and designed the characters. Tatsuya Nagamine (One Piece Film Z) directed the film. Toei is distributing the film in collaboration with 20th Century Fox.
