Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is getting ready for its theatrical release in Japan, and fans are hyped about the anime's major comeback. After a brief delay in April, the sequel to 2018's Dragon Ball Super: Broly will see Son Gohan, Piccolo, and other Z-Fighters defend Earth from the newly-revived Red Ribbon Army.
Toei Animation has already shared numerous promos and trailers featuring Gohan and Piccolo fight the criminal organization's new androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2, as well as teasing the mysterious villain that many fans are speculating to be Cell.
The new TV spot released in Japan focuses on Gohan and his only child, Pan, who's apparently been kidnapped by the Red Ribbon Army. There's also new footage of Gohan, in his new transformation, beating up Gamma 1. It looks like Goku's son becomes enraged after seeing what the villains have done to his daughter.

As you can see, there's also new footage of Piccolo powering-up against the android duo. Clearly, the film is shifting away focus from Goku and Vegeta, who are said to be taking care of things in outer space. It's still unclear what roles they will play in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero's story, but the trailers have already shown that they will be training with Broly in the planet of Beerus and Whis.
Here's the new Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero's official synopsis from Crunchyroll:
"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 is scheduled to release in theaters in Japan on June 11, 2022, and it's coming to theaters in North America and other regions this summer, starting in August.
