After a long wait, Dragon Ball Super is finally making a major comeback when its next big movie, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, hits theaters in Japan this Saturday, June 11. It's been about four years since the previous movie, Dragon Ball Super: Broly, was released in theaters, and although there are still no signs that the anime series will return for another season, the upcoming movie will surely hype fans of Akira Toriyama's shonen franchise up.
Toei Animation has released a new TV spot that highlights Pan, the daughter of Son Gohan and Videl. As you can see, Pan has grown a bit since we've last seen her in the Dragon Ball Super anime series, and it looks she has inherited her father's fighting spirit. The new clip shows the little girl introduced to the villainous Red Ribbon Army in a dangerous way.
The promos have already revealed that she will get kidnapped by the criminal organization originally introduced in the Dragon Ball series, and it's up to Gohan, Piccolo, and other Z-Fighters to rescue her and battle the Red Ribbon Army's new androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. Of course, there are other villains expected to appear in the movie, but we won't go over them here to avoid major spoilers.
Here's Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero's new 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 set to release in Japanese theaters this Saturday, June 11, 2022, and it's according to reports, it's coming to North America on August 19, and other regions this summer.
