The highly-anticipated Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is set to arrive at San Diego Comic-Con ahead of the film’s North American release.
The movie’s appearance at the upcoming convention will include a panel for the movie which will feature a Q&A with talent and production members, including the guest of honor Toshio Furukawa, (the Japanese voice actor for Piccolo), Christopher R. Sabat (the English voice of Piccolo), executive producer Akio Iyoku, and producer Norihiro Hayashida.
Perhaps most exciting for fans in attendance, however, is that the first 20 minutes of the film will be shown off exclusively at the convention. Alongside the panel, Crunchyroll and Toei Animation are set to produce a one-of-a-kind Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero-themed booth that will include a replica of Piccolo’s house as shown in the film.
“The Red Ribbon Army was once destroyed by Son Goku. Individuals, who carry on its spirit, have created the ultimate Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2,” reads the official synopsis. “These two Androids call themselves ‘Super Heroes’. They start attacking Piccolo and Gohan … What is the New Red Ribbon Army’s objective? In the face of approaching danger, it is time to awaken, Super Hero!”
The anime adaptation of Dragon Ball Super ended in March 2018 after 131 episodes aired. This marks the second movie for Dragon Ball Super, which is the highly successful sequel series to Dragon Ball Z. The first film was Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which was directed by Tatsuya Nagamine and written by Akira Toriyama. Broly took place after the events of the Universe Survival Saga and features Goku and Vegeta taking on the legendary Saiyan.
