That's right, a new Dragon Ball anime movie is on the way. Confirmed by Toei Animation, a brand new story in the Dragon Ball Super arc will be coming out some time in the near-ish future. Akira Toriyama, the creator of Dragon Ball, was the one to send out a message to fans telling them that there will be a new adventure in his expansive world.
Spotted by Comicbook, the message contained in a deleted Toei Animation article was posted to Twitter. The message says, "An all new movie since Dragon Ball Super: Broly is currently in the making! Just like the previous movies, I'm heavily leading the story and dialogue production for another amazing film."
While Toriyama-san didn't explicitly say that the upcoming movie would have a 20-minute wood carving montage, he didn't rule it out either, so, that's absolutely still on the table in our eyes. For a glimpse at what that might look like, check out this awesome Vegeta carving:
The message continued: "I really shouldn't talk too much about the plot yet, but be prepared for some extreme and entertaining bouts, which may feature an unexpected character. We'll be charting through some unexplored territory in terms of the visual aesthetics to give the audience an amazing ride, so I hope everybody will look forward to the new movie!"
It seems that the reason this message has been taken down is because it went live accidentally. Toei Animation obviously had a small website hiccup, and the announcement was supposed to be part of Goku Day, which is May 9. Instead, the message appeared on May 8, and now through further confirmation, we know the movie is on the way.
In any case, there are many who are going to be incredibly excited to see that there is another feature-length film set in the Dragon Ball universe. Dragon Ball Super: Broly was game-changing when it was released back in 2018 - fans went out to see the film in droves, and it collected $30 million at the US box office alone according to Polygon. That put it as the highest-grossing film in America that day, despite its seemingly niche audience. Now we'll get a second instalment some time in 2022 - we'll be waiting patiently until then, Toei Animation.
