Toei Animation recently lifted the ban for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero spoilers, and fans are already talking about the movie's most spectacular fights, a surprising villain, and Gohan and Piccolo's new transformations. One of the movie's most unique aspects is how it features innovative computer-generated animation versus the traditional 2-D animation used in the past. Now, an animatoro has shared a behind-the-scenes look at how this new animation was used to bring one of the movie's biggest fights.
The behind-the-scenes look was shared by Twitter outlet @DbsHype. As you can see below, the animator breaks down the process of animating the intense battle between Piccolo and Gamma 2, one of the two androids Dr. Hedo created for the newly-revived Red Ribbon Army. The fight shows the Namekian's new "Smooth Piccolo" form.

If you've already seen the leaked spoilers, you'd already know that Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 are not the movie's main antagonists. Instead, Gohan, Piccolo, and other Z-Fighters are fighting Cell Max, the gigantic and overpowered version of the classic Dragon Ball Z villain.
