Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods is the 14th Dragonball Z movie and is expected to be released on March 30th 2013 in Japan. The movie itself will be directed by Masahiro Hosoda with original series artist Akira Toriyama overseeing the film’s production.
So this is what we know about this awesome movie so far people, it’s the first Dragonball Z movie to have a theatrical release in 17 years! That’s a long ass time… The last DBZ movie that got a cinema release was Dragonball: The Path to Power back in 1996! Some of you readers probably weren’t even born! Akira Toriyama said himself that this movie will retain the atmosphere of the anime, and also have small amounts of modern flavour to it. Not sure what that means, but it sounds awesome!
Instead of spin offs like the other DBZ movies, this one WILL be part of the DBZ main storyline. The story is going to take place after the defeat of Majin Buu and between chapters 517 and 518 of the manga which was also known as “the lost decade”. So basically, we’re going to be seeing what happened to Goku and friends after he defeated Kid Buu and what happened during the 10 year time skip before the 28th Martial Arts Tournament.
Bils, The God of Destruction has woken from a long slumber and has heard news of a warrior strong enough to defeat frieza. He seeks out Goku and easily defeats him in battle, Goku being Goku just couldn’t say no to a challenge…
Unsatisfied, Bils travels to earth to find a more worthy opponent and continues to wipe out the Z fighters one by one. Goku will later return to challenge Bils to a rematch.
Seriously we can’t tell you how excited we are for this new Dragonball Z movie! We all grew up with the anime and it was a huge part of our childhood, so we’re looking forward to reliving those memoires and shouting KA-ME-HA-ME-HAAAAAAAAAA at the television screen again. The teaser trailer hasn’t given much away but it looks awesome son, definitely gonna have to watch out for this one people! Akira Toriyama himself is getting key input for this movie so that is a big reason not to doubt it.
Better grab your scouters and senzu beans, as this movie’s power level is gonna be over 9000!… yes I went there.
