Dragon Ball Creator Shares Official Artwork of Piccolo and Cell's Latest Forms

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is out, and that means big things are on the horizon for the anime. After all, fans outside of Japan are still waiting to check out the movie while locals are flooding theaters to rewatch the flick. Even creator Akira Toriyama is feeling hyped about the big movie, and not long ago, he forewent spoiler warnings by dropping some official artwork of Piccolo and Cell from the film.

So, you have been warned! There are major spoilers below for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. Proceed with caution.

If you didn't know, Dragon Ball Super has its new movie in theaters overseas, and Japanese fans are still flocking to see the film. Toriyama is now celebrating the anime's successful comeback with two gifts for attendees. For those who see Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero in theaters right now, you will get one of two prints done up by Toriyama, and they reveal some big spoilers from the movie's finale.

As you can see above, the first print to the left showcases Piccolo and his new giant transformation. Not only is the hero bulked up in this shot, but he towers over most in his purple-red gi. With new brows and jawline in place, Piccolo looks downright terrifying in this orange form, and this power is used in Dragon Ball Super to take on Cell when the villain makes their comeback.

The other print penned by Toriyama highlights the villain and his second coming courtesy of the Red Ribbon Army. Cell appears to be a mix of forms here as he's rocking perfect and imperfect features. Of course, fans can see Cell 2.0 has a special color scheme thanks to all his red accents, and that is not the only big difference here. Cell has some sort of contraption on his tail, and the baddie's hands are also covered in some sort of purple glove.

Clearly, these two forms have been kept out of official promos, but Toriyama is starting to batter down the gates that have kept his movie's spoilers safe. Audiences worldwide will get to see these forms firsthand before long as Crunchyroll plans to distribute Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero globally this summer. So if you are stateside, you can expect to check out the comeback in theaters starting this August.
