The 20th Dragon Ball movie, called “Dragon Ball Super: Broly,” recently revealed new promotional posters, and they're appearing all over Japan. These new posters give fans a closer look at the new designs of characters appearing in the movie.

New posters for the upcoming movie

The posters feature main characters like Goku, Vegeta, Frieza, and Broly, along with other supporting characters. Goku and Vegeta are in their usual Super Saiyan Blue forms, while the Legendary Super Saiyan, who appears in a new trailer from SDCC, [VIDEO] Broly, is making an expression similar to the non-canon version. The fan-favorite villain, Frieza, also appears on the poster and he looks ready to use a death beam in his Golden form.

A high-resolution Piccolo design can also be seen on these new posters. Beerus and Whis did not receive a big change in these new designs.

This is the first time that we get to see the new designs for Goten, Trunks, and Bulma. Bulma and Trunks appear in new costumes, while Goten can be seen wearing his old clothes. Up until now, Goten and Trunks served as comic relief characters for the series, but they might finally get their chance to take part in a huge battle against a mighty opponent in the upcoming Dragon Ball movie. According to Comic Book, the “Dragon Ball Super” manga bonus chapters, which showcase Goten and Trunks, develop a storyline, which was already revealed in a full plot summary for the movie, [VIDEO]and which might bring back Cell to the franchise.

There is still hope for both of these little Saiyans turning into major characters after all.

Is Gohan going to make an appearance in the movie?

There is no word about Gohan appearing in the movie. After Cell Games, Gohan’s role has shifted from the main character to a side character. At some points in the anime, Gohan has surpassed even Goku by attaining his Ultimate form and training with the Elder Kai. Now, Gohan’s power level has been greatly nerfed when compared to the manga, which showed Gohan go all out against the fused Universe 6 Saiyan “Kefla.” Gohan can also be seen wearing a costume similar to Piccolo's, in the manga, as opposed to the anime, in which Gohan appears in orange Gi.

Fans are expecting that Gohan will make a surprise appearance in the upcoming movie with a whole new design and possibly a new form as well. The new Dragon Ball Super movie is set to be released on December 14, 2018, in Japan. Funimation has acquired the theatrical rights for the movie and is planning to release it in the United States and Canada in January 2019.
