Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is arriving in theaters around the world this August, and with the latest film following the Z-Fighters already on the silver screen in Japan, a new clip of the first few minutes of the film have hit the net. Taking the opportunity to dive into the history of the Red Ribbon Army, the androids, and the nefarious Cell, fans are living it up with the flashback that takes us back to the earlier days of Dragon Ball via some flashy new animation.
Following the death of Dr. Gero in Dragon Ball Z and the eventual defeat of Cell, the Red Ribbon Army came to an end, though the organization is set to return in this new film as the grandson of Dr. Gero, Dr. Hedo, is building two new androids to help in fighting against the Z-Fighters. Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 obviously look quite different than the androids that we had previously come to know in Androids 16 through 18, though it's clear that they'll be rallying under the Red Ribbon banner this time around. Ultimately, it will be interesting to see if the Red Ribbon Army has a future following this next movie.
Twitter Users took the opportunity to capture several screenshots from the recently released clip of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, which took fans on a trip to the past for the first few minutes of the movie, highlighting the earlier life of Goku while also diving into the creation and life of the Dragon Ball Z villain known as Cell:

While Super Hero is the next big project in the animated world of Dragon Ball, the creative minds behind this next film are already stating that they are working on a new project in the universe of the Z-Fighters. While the anime series has yet to reveal when, or if, it will be returning to the small screen, there is plenty of material from the manga for it to adapt whenever it does, including the likes of the Granolah The Survivor Arc and the Moro Arc to name a few.
