New Dragon Ball Z Movie Confirmed For 2015 Japanese Release.
Following the success of the new movie, it's perhaps slightly less surprising that Toei have announced a new movie will debut in 2015. As with the previous movie, it will tell a new story based on a concept by Toriyama, but this time it will feature the return of an old foe- the mighty Frieza. Fans will remember that Frieza is currently distinctly deceased in the Dragon Ball cannon, so the plot will see two survivors of his army seeking to resurrect him with the Dragon Balls. And considering he's on the poster- presumably they succeed, leaving Goku and co to save the universe again. The Japanese title translates as "F Is For Resurrection", and the film will open in Japan on April 18th 2015- and will also be screening in 3D.
Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later that this makes it to the West. In the meantime the rather excellent Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Gods is now available from Manga Entertainment in the UK and Funimation in North America. Check out the first poster below.
