September 20, 2018

The wait is over, and the battle date is set! Super Saiyans Goku and Vegeta will gather to face their most powerful foe ever on January 16th – the official theatrical opening date for Dragon Ball Super: Broly, announced today by Funimation Films. The 20th film from the franchise and first from the Dragon Ball Super series, Dragon Ball Super: Broly is based on the original story, screenplay and character designs of creator Akira Toriyama and features an updated art style reminiscent of the classic bestselling Dragon Ball manga series. To celebrate the new film, Funimation will host a star-studded red carpet world premiere of the English dub on Thursday, December 13th at the historic TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood. Expected guests will include the stars of the English cast, celebrity guests and studio executives.

“We’re thrilled to finally share the official opening date of ‘Dragon Ball Super: Broly’ with fans since first announcing the acquisition in July, ” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and President of Funimation. “From its updated art style to the assembly of canon characters new and old, ‘Dragon Ball Super: Broly’ is sure to please fans. Creator Akira Toriyama’s imagination and masterful storytelling truly shine through in this exciting new movie.”

As earlier announced and as part of the film’s promotion, a Dragon Ball Super: Broly panel will take place at New York Comic Con 2018 on Friday, October 5th at 6:00 p.m. in the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden. The newly expanded list of confirmed special guests consists of Masako Nozawa (original Japanese voice of Goku), the film’s director Tatsuya Nagamine, Sean Schemmel (current English voice of Goku) Christopher Sabat (current English voice of Vegeta), Monica Rial (current English voice of Bulma and panel emcee), Jason Douglas (current English voice of Beerus), Ian Sinclair (current English voice of Whis) and Vic Mignogna (reprising his role as English voice of Broly).

Dragon Ball Super: Broly follows the events of the hit anime series Dragon Ball Super, the first new Dragon Ball storyline from original creator Akira Toriyama in more than 18 years. Since premiering in summer 2015, Dragon Ball Super has propelled the popularity of the franchise globally – with both lifelong fans and a new generation of children and teens. The last Dragon Ball film, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ (2015), was a box office hit – grossing $8M in North America to become the first independent film to make the Top 10 list of highest grossing anime films domestically.

Ha! I remember that. They had Pantera, Disturbed, Drowning Pool, and a few others on their movie dubs. In retrospect, that was a gawd awful decision.

As someone who just recently rewatched some of the american dubs, it was a hilarious choice. It americanized the action where it does not fit it in an anime but you get what they were trying to do with it.

If you are referring to the american rock music. That wont be in there. That was like funimation trying to make the movie more edgy and attuned to americans more than anything. They did the same for other anime movies that didnt have it in their original releases. The street fighter animated movie for example didnt have Alice in Chains on its soundtrack when it originally released in Japan.

1000000% all over this! Hoping they also incorporate the same awesome kind of music the was in the first two Broly films. That really helped set the tone

Yea, was never a fan of Uub. I preferred my Majin Buu as an evil psychopath. Fat Buu can be the innocent powerhouse. I was looking forward to seeing the slim downed Fat Buu fight in the Tournament of Power in DBS, but then he fell asleep...weak decision on the writers part.

Fat Bu was so fun. I agree with you.

Another good thing of the GT were Gotenks and Great Sayman, as I stated before Gohan is my favorite character of the entire franchise ad I know that he could even be stronger than Goku and Vegeta.

Then they came up with Ub and later on they fused them into Ubu. That was so so weird.

Yea, Buu was great villain to conclude the series with. A mystical being that defied the laws of nature.

I will ask my friends how is the best way to get my hands on the series. Yes, Frieza was a great villan. The Namek saga is a great one. I don't Cal a lot and the Bu saga was the best I think.

Absolutely, DBZ was the best. Super is a nice continuation, but the power scaling is all over the place. New transformations pop up far faster in Super as well, but its still far more entertaining than GT. The multiverse and new deity hierarchiesare interestingconcepts. For all my gripes, I still enjoy watching Super.

Frieza has always been my favorite character. Such a pompous and sadistic villain that completely owned the heroes for an extended period of time. I hatedhis original dub voice (chain smoking grandma),but his Japanese voice is perfect. His new dub voice, Chris Ayres, is a great match as well.
