The film will focus on the history of the Saiyans. Notably, Akira Toriyama has worked on the script and the characters [VIDEO] of the movie.

Fans of the anime can expect a number of new characters in the film. ComicBoook wrote, "Along with confirming the appearance of Sean Schemmel and Christopher Sabat, the panel also teases "surprise appearances," and most importantly, teases that never-before-seen material will be shown off."

The panel for "Dragon Ball Super" will be held in Hall H Thursday, July 19 2:15-3: 15 PM

It is worth mentioning that the promo of the film was already released. The promo for the movie gave some interesting insights such as Goku’s new winter look and Frieza’s latest lackeys. The character intention of Frieza remains ambiguous as to whether he'll be helping Goku and Vegeta, or whether he is plotting an evil scheme or not. As for his appearance, Shintani's design makes him seem sharp and neat.

The other characters, Lemo and Chelye seem to be in Frieza's team because of the similar use of armor and scouters.

Although they never appeared before, they look tacky, styled in similar headgear. Both of them wear scouters over one eye. These scouters are obviously well known in the Dragon Ball universe.

Fighter power levels and scouters

Earlier, the scouters were used to give the audience a more comprehensive idea of a fighter’s power level. Goku and his gang were seen to give off some really high readings but as the power levels eventually started increasing scouters became obsolete. When "Dragon Ball Super" rolled in, Frieza dropped the scouters but the tech might resurface once the series’ first movie goes live this December. "Dragon Ball Super" is currently airing its’ dubbed version in English on Adult Swim during the Toonami programming block on Saturday evenings at 9.30 PM. It is also available to stream on Funimation and Amazon Video. The Japanese language release of the series is complete and is now available to stream on Funimation, VRV, and Crunchyroll.
