Dragon Ball Super: Broly is expected to show off some epic battles between the legendary Saiyan Broly and Earth's Saiyan heroes and Frieza, but not everything can be captured in 2D animation.


During an interview with CG Producer Yuuji Yoko'o, CG Line Producer Takuya Fukunaga, and CG Director Kai Makino (thanks to translations from Todd Blankenship on Twitter), they teased the film's weird setting and an epic climactic battle.

According to them, Tatsuya Nagamine wanted to take full advantage of CG animation for the film. It turns out that one of the film's new locations can only be made in CGI.

They explained that the alternate universe can only be created in CGI, and Nagamine wanted the CG artists to be creative with their experiment.

It's cool that the film will use different avenues of animation to make Broly's fights with Goku, Vegeta, and Frieza special. The trailer teased some of the battles in the film but I'm sure they haven't shown the most spectacular parts yet.



"This is the story of a new Saiyan. Earth is peaceful following the Tournament of Power. Realizing that the universes still hold many more strong people yet to see, Goku spends all his days training to reach even greater heights. Then one day, Goku and Vegeta are faced by a Saiyan called 'Broly' who they've never seen before. The Saiyans were supposed to have been almost completely wiped out in the destruction of Planet Vegeta, so what's this one doing on Earth? This encounter between the three Saiyans who have followed completely different destinies turns into a stupendous battle, with even Freeza (back from Hell) getting caught up in the mix."
