There are lots of things which Dragon Ball fans are looking forward to this year. However, it is hard to out-hype the franchise's next film. This winter, Dragon Ball will release its 20th film, and Toei just let fans know when more info about the movie will go live.
So, all you fans better mark your calendars for this March.
According to Anime Japan, the annual convention will have Toei Animation appear at the event from March 22-25. It is there the studio will talk all things Digimon Adventure tri., Mazinger Z, and Dragon Ball. The event's latest promo specifically mentions Toei bringing new information about the 2018 Dragon Ball movie to the convention.

Of course, there is no word on what details will be made public, but fans are hoping for more story details. So far, Toei has been tight-lipped about the film and its premise.
If you are not familiar with the next Dragon Ball's next movie, you should know the project was announced last month. Toei confirmed a new film was in the works during Jump Festa, and the studio teased a bit about the release. A title card for the project was shown to fans, and it had a vague caption tagged to it.
"The story is already finished / Historical number of characters / The keyword is Saiyan," the placard read.
If the rumors are true, then the next Dragon Ball film will focus on the origins of the Saiyan race. Fans are speculating the movie will star Yamoshi, the original Super Saiyan God, and focus on the fighter's journey to rid Planet Sadala of corrupt Saiyans.
DragonBall Super airs on Crunchyroll Saturday evenings at 7:15 p.m. CST. Adult Swim airs the English dub during its Toonami block Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m, and is now available to stream on FunimationNOW and Amazon Video.
If you want to catch up with the English dub, the first 39 episodes of Dragon Ball Super are now available to stream on FunimationNOW, Crunchyroll's VRV service, and available to purchase on Amazon Video. The 39 episodes span the full range of what has aired in the North America and covers the "Battle of Gods" arc, "Revival of F" arc, and the most recently ended "Universe 6" arc.
