'Dragon Ball Super: Broly' Releases Full Story Summary

Dragon Ball Super: Broly is the biggest movie release of the year for Dragon Ball fans, and it's been an even tougher wait ever since the first trailer for it dropped during San Diego Comic-Con 2018.

But what can fans expect in the new movie? Thanks to a new reveal, fans now have the full story summary of the film. You can read it in full below.

Dragon Ball Super: Broly (as translated by Twitter user @Herms98) is described as such:

"This is the story of a new Saiyan. Earth is peaceful following the Tournament of Power. Realizing that the universes still hold many more strong people yet to see, Goku spends all his days training to reach even greater heights. Then one day, Goku and Vegeta are faced by a Saiyan called 'Broly' who they've never seen before. The Saiyans were supposed to have been almost completely wiped out in the destruction of Planet Vegeta, so what's this one doing on Earth? This encounter between the three Saiyans who have followed completely different destinies turns into a stupendous battle, with even Freeza (back from Hell) getting caught up in the mix."

Although the full summary basically outlines what was seen in the trailer, the interesting bit is confirming that Goku and Vegeta have indeed never met Broly before (if there were any lingering doubt), and the film will most likely explore how Broly and his father survive the destruction of Vegeta.

The Dragon Ball Super film, now titled Dragon Ball Super: Broly, is set to release this December in Japan and January in the United States. The film will focus on the Saiyans, the "origins of Goku's power," and has been confirmed to feature a rebooted take on the famous raging Saiyan Broly. The first trailer for the upcoming film has been released and has received an overwhelming positive response as the first impression of the new Broly battling Goku, Vegeta, and Freeza just built an incredible amount of hype.

If you are interested in the anime series itself, Dragon Ball Super is currently airing its English dub on Adult Swim during the Toonami programming block Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m. It is also available to stream on Funimation and Amazon Video.
