The Dragon Ball franchise is in the midst of one of its strongest years ever as 2018 provided huge break out projects, and 2019 promises even more. That makes Funimation and Toei Animation's recent teases all the more intriguing.

On March 1, Funimation tweeted a photo of the Four Star Dragon Ball along with the caption "Something legendary is coming..." This was peculiar on its own, but a minute later Toei Animation shared a photo of the Three Star Dragon Ball with the same caption. Though there's no clue as to what this "legendary" announcement will entail, fans are absolutely curious as to what this may be.
Current theories around the announcement put the four and three star images in a new light as they suspect that something is being teased for either March 4 (3/4) or April 3 (4/3). There are also theories that this could be an announcement related to the upcoming 35th Anniversary celebration of the original Dragon Ball manga's release. Other theories even have fans hoping that the next era of the Dragon Ball anime will be announced.
Either way, fans will soon find out what Toei Animation and Funimation are teasing for the Dragon Ball franchise. They have "legendary" hopes that hopefully won't be dashed.
