The recent issue of Shueisha’s V Jump magazine has revealed that there will be a new anime film for Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball Z. The film will air in Golden Week next year.
The upcoming movie will be the 15th overall theatrical film in the Dragon Ball Z franchise. It will be an new original story written by Toriyama, similar to the 2012 Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods film. Toriyama will be more involved with the upcoming film, being credited with the original concept, screenplay and character designs.
The story is being treated by Toriyama like if it were a continuation of the original Dragon Ball manga. He has been putting a large amount of effort into the art and story and making sure all the finer details are all perfect, earning the praise of his original editor. Toriyama also teased that there will be more action scenes and that it will be “utterly funny”.
The new upcoming Dragon Ball Z film will be airing during Golden Week next year, throughout the Spring 2015 season. More information on the film will release in upcoming Jump magazines.
