Toei Animation announced a new Dragon Ball Super anime movie on Sunday, with Akira Toriyama penning and designing the characters. The movie is scheduled to open in theaters in Japan in 2022.

The Dragon Ball Super television anime, sequel to Dragon Ball Z, aired in 131 episodes from July 2015 to March 2018. The first movie of the Super series, Dragon Ball Super: Broly, opened in Japan in December 2018, grossing over 13.5 million yen (approximately US$12.3 million) worldwide. It was nominated at the 42nd Japan Academy Film Prize in the Animation of the Year category.

Toriyama and Toyotarou began serializing the Dragon Ball Super manga in June 2015 in V-Jump magazine. Shueisha shipped the 15th volume on April 2. VIZ Media licensed the manga in English in North America and published the 12th volume on March 2.

I'm surprised by how little hype there is for the film maybe it's because most fans thought Super was mediocre or just fine? Still this is Dragon Ball...

sure, the next movie would be about unaged goku again fighting his inner booger that had been stuck on his nose for quite a while and he decided that was enough so then...

After the DBS anime, I think I'd rather rewatch Dragonball and DBZ again instead of watching this, but glad for the people who are hyped.
