Dragon Ball Super is making an anime comeback next year with the release of its next feature-length film, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, and earlier this month at Jump Festa 2021, Toei Animation released a new trailer with action-packed footage that puts Son Gohan in the spotlight.
The upcoming anime film will focus on characters other than Goku and Vegeta, including Gohan, Krillin, Piccolo, Pan, and Red Ribbon Army along with the villainous organization's new androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2.
Now, official character descriptions for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero characters have been released to give us an idea which key characters the movie will focus on. Check them out:
