Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero’s Trailer was released just a few days on 8 October 2022. It is clear from the trailer that the movie will be CG animated. Reactions to the CG are mixed: some despise it, while others accept it and are just looking forward to more Dragon Ball. Toei still has plenty of time to perfect the CG animation before the film’s final release. It’s probably best to have an open mind, and it may look much better.
It must be kept in mind that this isn’t the first time CG has been used in a Dragon Ball film. It was included in Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F and Dragon Ball Super: Broly, and they have been absolutely wonderful. Although it is certainly true that CG has not been used to the level of that of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is expected to have.
Dragon Ball Super Movie 2022 Plot
The upcoming movie is the twenty-first movie in the Dragon Ball franchise. Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is the sequel to Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which was released in 2018. Akira Toriyama, the film’s creator, is authoring the script and contributing to the character design of Super Hero. He has stated this is this is the movie for which he is working the hardest. The new film takes place after Dragon Ball Super: Broly, but before the 28th Tenkaichi Budokai.
The rest of the details of the movie hasn’t been made available, but some things that can be deciphered from the trailer is that the Pan is a few years older than what has been depicted in the last chapters of the manga. Thus, it means that the movie is set in the future. The movie is also closely going to follow the character designs in the manga, as is apparent from the new character designs of the movie released. For starters, the character design of Piccolo has been changed to the character design portrayed in the manga. The colors of Piccolo’s arms that have been shown as pinkish so far in the anime have been changed to yellowish-greenish as shown in the manga.
Although the information on the whole cast of the movie isn’t known, the movie is still in the production stage. We do know the voice actors of two major characters. Our favorite Son Goku is being voiced by Masako Nozawa, and Piccolo is voiced by Toshio Furukawa. Both of the actors have previously voiced the characters multiple times, so we can rest assured that the voicing will be as awesome as it has been till now.
