Forums - General Discussion - Update! Trailer Is Up! Dragon Ball Super Film Reveals Broly As Main Villain. New Visual And Other Details.

https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2018-07-09/dragon-ball-super-film-reveals-dragon-ball-super-broly-title-visual/.133123

 

Toei announced more details on Monday for the the upcoming 20th Dragon Ball film, including the film's title and visual. The film's title is Dragon Ball Super: Broly. The below visual's tagline reads "The greatest enemy, Saiyan," and confirms the film will screen in IMAX, MX4D, and 4DX in Japan in addition to regular screenings.

 

Original manga creator Akira Toriyama provided a new 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!!

  

Those who pre-order tickets for the film in Japan starting on July 20 will receive one of two charms for Goku and Vegeta. The charms change color based on the temperature, turning into Super Saiyan forms when hot, and turning into Super Saiyan Blue forms when cold. The bonus items are limited to 50,000.

If any mod is reading this, could you do me a favor and post the new visual in the OP? Thanks.



I saw Broly trending on twitter at like number 3 or something, I was like "wtf is he trending for?" and well now I know. Didn't think they would bring Broly into the Superverse. Female Broly had like 5 seconds of fame till now. The question now is will this be canon?



Yes! Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan is the best animated film of all time. I'm excited.



And my excitement for this movie dropped dramatically.

Broly? Didn't he died like 3 times already? He is like one of the slasher villians always coming back after being killed.

Except this will be the first time Broly will be canon. So this should make the previous Broly movies irrelevant. 



I don't get it, it feels like Super just doesn't want to go into brave new directions. I mean Battle of Gods opened the gates to a very strong world building element but noooo they play it safe and again adhere to fan service. They're just ripping off stuff left and right, they ride on the coattails of Friza for the majority of the show, have little to no story to tell since the majority of the show is the tournament arcs and have poorly written characters i.e. Jiren. Most importantly any emotionally charged actions were effectively removed, no more rage moments, no more letting loose, it's just ehh (come on, back tingling??).

Like this was supposed to be a soft reboot for the DB franchise, a new art direction, going back to basics but honestly, it feels like they're just going to rehash stuff again from DB's history. Whatever, I love Broly and I hope there is a good emphasis on storytelling this time around. DB has never had great stories to tell but it had shining glimpses of character arcs/ characterisation, that's why Vegeta and Gohan were my favourite characters.



Will they add even more over-powered and unlikable douches this time? *points to most characters introduced in Battle of The Gods/Super*

Modern Dragon Ball is all about the merchandise and revenue, the decisions that they make with the series now are all gonna be driven by how much money it can make and how safe it is, this is the unfortunate reality. I personally am not expecting any improvements going forward and with the way things are looking i'm most likely gonna stay away from all things Dragon Ball if this is the type of thing they'll approve of. I mean, ever since Resurrection F all they've given us is glorified fanfiction, and not the good kind (if there is such a thing). They aren't interested in taking risks, making a competently well written show or characters, they're just interested in nostalgia wank. At least they're being honest about it now.
