It looks like the rumors are true! At long last, the folks at Toei Animation have released new details about Dragon Ball Super's movie, and it seems the feature will be all about Broly. Yes, that's right. Broly is back, and he's about to be made canon.
Over on Twitter, Toei Animation confirmed the big news with a post. Rumors began circulating that Broly would be featured in the big film, but the production team behind the anime has now confirmed those reports are true.

"The strongest of the series is here! The Legendary Saiyan Broly has appeared," Toei Animation's tweet reads.
"The official title for Dragon Ball Super: Broly has been decided, and the poster is out! As a rebooted version of the biggest enemy Saiyan, how do these three Saiyans with different fates meet each other."
The first Dragon Ball Super film is set to release this December in Japan, and has released its first trailer. The film will focus on the Saiyans, the "origins of Goku's power," and potentially the story of the very first Super Saiyan. Not only does it aim to be the best film in the series, original creator Akira Toriyama will be contributing to the film's script and character designs. Fans will get their first look at the new film during the Dragon Ball North America Tour after the event premieres the film's first full-length trailer at SDCC.
