Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is coming to U.S. theaters and other regions this month. After its June premiere in theaters in Japan, fans from all over the world will finally get to see the story of Gohan and Piccolo's conflict against the newly-revived Red Ribbon Army, shifting away the focus from Goku and Vegeta. The shonen movie will also see the return of his wife Videl and daughter Pan. Now, a new cover art for Dragon Ball Super's manga has shared a new look on Gohan's family.

Gohan is not the only one set to take stage in the movie, but his daughter Pan will also play a major role. She will be training with Piccolo, attempting to become a stronger fighter herself even though she's only three-years-old during the events of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.

Over on Twitter, user DBS Hype tweeted a look at the back cover for the Dragon Ball Super Volume 19, which features a new look at Gohan, Videl, and Pan during the time period of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.


While Gohan takes center stage in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, the son of Goku hasn't appeared much in recent chapters of Akira Toriyama and Toyotarou's Dragon Ball Super manga. The manga's current arc, Granolah the Survivor Arc, is coming to an end, and Shueisha hasn't revealed any details about the next arc, so it's still unclear when the manga will bring Gohan back. Toei Animation hasn't announced any plans for the anime's return, but you can read more details about the potential Dragon Ball Super Season 2 here.

You can read the official synopsis for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero below:

"The Red Ribbon Army was once destroyed by Son Goku. Individuals, who carry on its spirit, have created the ultimate Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. These two Androids call themselves "Super Heroes". They start attacking Piccolo and Gohan... What is the New Red Ribbon Army's objective? In the face of approaching danger, it is time to awaken, Super Hero."

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero came out in Japanese theaters on June 11, and it's set to arrive in the U.S. and the U.K. on August 19. Crunchyroll already revealed official theatrical release dates for other regions.
