Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero has arrived in theaters in North America, pitting Gohan and Piccolo against the Red Ribbon Army. With the Shonen film set to give fans following the series plenty of surprises thanks to the battles taking place during its runtime, fans are already reserving their tickets and heading to theaters to partake in the movie that came from the mind of creator Akira Toriyama. With big things happening in theaters around the world, in the world of Fortnite, and in the Shonen's manga, it's a good time to be a fan of Dragon Ball.
So what do you need to know about this new movie when it comes to the past of Dragon Ball Super? The last animated feature focused on the arrival of the legendary Super Saiyan Broly, who was pitted against Goku and Vegeta thanks to the machinations of Frieza. While Broly has been confirmed to be a part of this film, don't expect the green-haired brawler to play the role of the villain here. In his place, the Red Ribbon Army will have two new androids to square off against Gohan and Piccolo in Gamma 1 and Gamma 2, a pair of automatons that happen to hold a superhero aesthetic of their own.
Tickets can currently be bought here via the Official Website for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, and with the Shonen film arriving in 3,900+ theaters, it might not be too difficult to find a showing near you. Currently, predictions are arriving that the movie might take the number one spot at the theatrical box office in North America, though it will need to hit the ground floor running to hit the same heights as Broly when it landed in 2019.
The official description of the latest film from Akira Toriyama which brings back the Red Ribbon Army and has plenty of surprises in store reads as such:
"The Red Ribbon Army was once destroyed by Son Goku. Individuals, who carry on its spirit, have created the ultimate Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. These two Androids call themselves "Super Heroes". They start attacking Piccolo and Gohan… What is the New Red Ribbon Army's objective? In the face of approaching danger, it is time to awaken, Super Hero!"
