As mentioned in our previous article regarding the recently released trailer for the film, Akira Toriyama, the creator of Dragon Ball, had the following to say:
This Dragon Ball Super film is the next story after the currently airing television anime. The story takes place after the climax of the Tournament of Power, where the fate of the universe was at stake, and the short rest that follows. It will give a few previously unwritten details about the Saiyans and Frieza, as well as a long-awaited strong opponent to overcome, and I think it will be an enjoyable story! From 2013’s Battle of Gods and the last film Resurrection ‘F’ to the current film, I’ve been carefully writing, and I’ve had the pleasure of drawing lots of designs and the like. I’m actually as busy as ever, but while I don’t have to serialize anything I have time to think about the anime, which used to be out of my hands. (laughs) So please look forward to it!
You heard it from the man himself, the Dragon Ball Super film is set to take place just after the climax of the Tournament of Power. The previous trailer briefly showcased the character that Toriyama might have been talking about when he mentioned the “long-awaited strong opponent to overcome,” though we’ll just have to wait and see. Further information about the upcoming film can be found via the official website.
