Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is expected to astonish fans with its groundbreaking animation, but the highly-anticipated shonen film is also expected to have exciting music that should get fans hyped as they watch Son Gohan and the other Z-Fighters battle the villainous Red Ribbon Army. After all, the music for the film is being composed by the talented Naoki Satō. Now, he has shared an update about his work for the movie.
Over on Twitter, Satō confirmed that they have finished music work for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero weeks ahead of its official theatrical release. Twitter outlet @DBSChronicles shared an English translation:
The 51-year-old Japanese composer is known for providing music for several popular anime shows including the first five Pretty Cure series, X, Eureka Seven, Sword of the Stranger, and Blood-C. He also composed music for anime movies such as Pretty Cure All Stars DX trilogy, Stand By Me Doraemon. Satō also composed the music for victory ceremonies at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Toei Animation hasn't revealed what kind of music we can expect to hear from Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, but with Satō in charge of the film's music, expect the soundtrack to be top-notch.
The synopsis of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero reads:
"In the past, Goku destroyed the evil 'Red Ribbon Army' organization. But their will lived on!!
Now that they've revived, the RR create the new androids 'Gamma 1' and 'Gamma 2', and begin their revenge.
Piccolo soon notices this disturbing activity, and sneaks into the Red Ribbon base, but there he discovers an unimaginable 'ultimate evil weapon'..!!
Pan is kidnapped in order to lure Gohan to the base. There, he too joins the fight, and an unprecedented Super battle begins!
Where shall this death-match lead?! And what fate lies in store for the Earth?!"
