This summer, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, the latest instalment in the anime blockbuster genre, will be released in theatres throughout the world.
This summer, the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero film will be released in theatres all over the world. The first manga series written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama was serialised in Shueisha’s Weekly Shnen Jump from 1984 to 1995, and was inspired by the classic 16th-century Chinese tale Journey to the West, which was blended with aspects of Hong Kong martial arts movies. Dragon Ball is now a large media phenomenon spanning manga, anime, and video games that follows Son Goku’s martial arts training from boyhood to adulthood.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is the second entry in the Dragon Ball Super film franchise, which debuted with Dragon Ball Super: Broly in 2018. It was produced by Toei Animation and written by Toriyama. The story will pick up after Goku defeats the villainous Red Ribbon Army, which has been reconstituted by individuals who desire to carry on its spirit through the production of new, more powerful androids. These androids, known as Gamma 1 and Gamma 2, refer to themselves as “Super Heroes” and want vengeance on Piccolo and Gohan.
Crunchyroll and Toei Animation have now announced a worldwide theatrical release for the latest instalment in the anime blockbuster franchise. Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will be released in theatres globally in August, however no exact date has been announced. The film will be released in theatres across the globe, with subtitles in Japanese and dubbing in several languages.
Super Hero will arrive in theatres a little later in the United States than it will in Japan on June 11, but diehard fans won’t mind the wait if it means seeing the film in theatres. After Broly in 2018, Super Hero is the second Dragon Ball Super film to be released to fans around the world. The previous chapter was one of the highest-earning anime films in the United States, grossing over $120 million worldwide.
With its worldwide release, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is expected to maintain that pace. Super Hero has a decent possibility of surpassing Broly’s popularity, given the ardent fanbase Dragon Ball has established around the world for over 30 years, as the Dragon Ball Super franchise continues to appeal to longstanding fans and new audiences alike. The next instalment does not yet have a release date for August, but stay tuned because one will almost certainly be revealed shortly.
