Be it Broly or Frieza, the Dragon Ball franchise has never failed to surprise us by bringing back the classic characters. The franchise is obsessed with its villains that they came up with an entire spin-off series, Dragon Ball Super: Heroes just to make a place for these non-canon characters who couldn’t make it to the pages of the canon storyline. The upcoming film will bring back yet another antagonist from the Dragon Ball history, the Red Ribbon Army. This evil paramilitary organization is far from being a non-canon element; they were among the first threats that Goku saved the world from in his childhood days. Now, when will Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero film release in anime-loving countries like Japan, USA, UK, Canada, India, and elsewhere?
The Red Ribbon Army’s Dr. Gero was the mastermind behind the android invasion and the rise of Cell. You can call the Hydra of the Dragon Ball universe that keeps coming back no matter how many times they are destroyed. In the Dragon Ball Super film, they are coming into the limelight with new android models that are stronger than any of their previous creations.
What to Expect from Dragon Ball Super?
It seems that the Red Ribbon Army is tired of playing the bad guys, so they are trying to introduce their new creations as superheroes. The idea may sound noble, but it goes without saying that the evil scientists must have some selfish motive behind it. Maybe it’s their new plan of gaining control over the world by becoming the sole symbol of justice.
However, with our heroes still being around, there’s no way any third party can establish a power monopoly that easily. They started their rampage by targetting Piccolo, who was pretty roughed up in a single hit.
Now, it’s a film about Superheroes, and there’s no way that the real Dragon Ball superhero won’t show up. Yes, I am talking about the Great Saiyaman from the early days of the Majin Buu saga. It’s an alias name that teenager Gohan took just to continue with world-saving duties without exposing his identity.
Is Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Movie Canon?
Yes, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Film will be a canon installment of the series. It will pick up right from where the Dragon Ball Super: Broly film left us. Goku and Vegeta will go back to Lord Beerus’ planet to train under Whis. Meanwhile, Earth will be vulnerable with the return of the Red Ribbon Army, and Gohan is the only potential warrior who can stop them.
The Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will be another one of Akira Toriyama’s works. He will be taking care of the original story, character design, and script. The remaining staff details have not been revealed yet. The two new androids, Gamma 1 and Game 2, will be played by Hiroshi Kamiya (Levi Ackerman in ‘Attack on Titan’) and Mamoru Miyano (Light Yagami in Deathnote), respectively. It’s safe to assume that the other cast members will be reprising their roles as Piccolo, Gohan, and Bulma.
