Toei Animation just released the first teaser for the upcoming "Dragon Ball Super" Movie on all of their official social media accounts and every "Dragon Ball" fan is going nuts. "Dragon Ball Super" may be ending after Episode 131 airs this Sunday (March 25) but the franchise is far from over. The new trailer promises to bring back the show with a new story and a full makeover. Not to mention, Goku's appearance has been revamped for the new movie.

An original story

Akira Toriyama, the creator of "Dragon Ball," will lead the original story, screenplay, and character design.


Back in December 2017, an article from the Toei Animation USA site stated that the movie's main theme is "Saiyan, the strongest race in the universe." From the start of the "Dragon Ball Super" series, we have seen that Goku underwent many transformations, like, Super Saiyan God, Super Saiyan Blue, and now Ultra Instinct, so the movie's main plot will focus on the origin of the Saiyans’ strength and what it means to be Saiyan.

Ken Arto, a French animator, who is currently working on the new "Dragon Ball Super" movie, said that the intent of making these designs classic and beautiful is to get closer to the manga.

The trailer made its first debut on the Bandai Namco Entertainment lineup where Akio Iyoku, Shueisha's DB Unit Director, and Norihiro Hayashida, the movie's producer, were there to discuss the film. Both of them surprised the fans because no one was expecting for the "Dragon Ball" movie producer to show up in the game conference. Akio Iyoku also emphasized the point that fans should expect Frieza's big role in the upcoming movie by saying that “You know, you can’t talk about the Saiyans without Freeza, the man who literally killed everybody except for two Saiyans.”

Trailer reaction

After the trailer of the new movie was shown to the audience, Iyoku asked the fans that they must've noticed another character in the trailer with a green aura and then he went on to confirm that this character is a Saiyan as well.


Since the release of the trailer, fans have been theorizing all kinds of stuff about the plot of the movie. One of the ridiculous theories that I came across was that, when the Tournament of Power ends, Frieza will be given the chance to wish on the Super Dragon Balls and his wish will be that he be turned into a Saiyan, but chances are that the plot of the movie will be about the legendary Super Saiyan Yamoshi, who rebelled against the evil Saiyans present at his time.

The new movie is set to be globally released on December 14.
