Dragon Ball Super Movie Teaser Trailer Drops

As Toei Animation attempts to wrap up the current arc of the Dragon Ball Super anime, it was announced that the series would be going on an indefinite hiatus. Speculations concerning the cause of this hiatus were rampant throughout the Dragon Ball fan community. Was the series being canceled after a such a successful arc or would a new series be taking over?

Much to everyone's surprise, Toei has announced that a new Dragon Ball film will be released this year, on December 14th. Simply titled, 'Dragon Ball Super'. In addition, a teaser trailer was released on March 20th, to give fans an idea of what to expect from the film's animation.

The biggest buzz surrounding this upcoming release is the slight alterations made to Goku's design. The mighty Saiyan sports a slimmer (or less bulky) look with a lighter orange fighting gii. According to reports, this new design will enable the animators to create dynamic animation for the film.

We get a small glimpse of this animation in the teaser, which shows Goku warming up for a fight with an unknown foe. This new style may take some getting used to, but with the promise of more fluid action scenes and the likes of Naohiro Shintani (a key animator for One Piece Film Z) as the film's Animation director, 'Dragon Ball Super' promises to be a new experience in Dragon Ball animation.

Although the finer details of the film's premise have yet to be revealed, series creator Akira Toriyama has hinted that the film will take place after the latest arc of the anime series and reveal some unexplored ideas revolving around the history of the Saiyan Race.

Release details for regions outside of Japan have yet to be confirmed outright, but given how popular Dragon Ball is in the west, rumors of a worldwide release on the 14th of December does not seem so far-fetched.

It is unclear if the Dragon Ball Super anime series will continue after this film's release or if a new series will take its place. However, with this abundance of new information, one fact is crystal clear The adventures of the Saiyan warriors and the many characters of Akira Toriyama's wacky world is far from over.
