Dragon Ball is a series that Japan is very proud of, so we felt a sense of responsibility while working on this film. We are also going to release it in America this summer as well! What ? “What comes next”? Well, if you ask, a new installment in the series is already in the works! It took us five years to make Super Hero, so it’s only fitting that we’re already working on the sequel! Toriyama-sensei himself is always working on new concepts and ideas for Dragon Ball, after all. We’re all thinking about what we want to show the world next.”

Nevertheless, it is possible that Goku is at the heart of this new project, if it is a movie, after being ousted for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, which focuses on the characters of Gohan and Piccolo. However, it is also possible that the project is that of the return of the anime Dragon Ball Super. And for good reason, last January, Iyoku announced that there was “great chance that something other than the movie will come out this year“.
