First of all you need to check out this trailer:
As far as design and animation go this is probably the best looking Dragon Ball film that's ever been made. It looks like the manga come to life and I love it! Toei is clearly taking this project extremely seriously, which is a big reason the TV series has ended (for now). It was so they could put in the effort this movie deserves and many of the top animators have been brought on to do this movie, but if you saw the trailer you can probably tell by looking at it.
I'll be honest. I have a love/hate relationship with the character of Broly. On the one hand he is an extremely imposing character who is best known for being an unstoppable tank that just wrecks all the main characters. On the other hand his backstory is really bad and his motivations for going berserk are even worse. I think I'll let Team Four Star explain it for me:
As you can see Broly as a character is really cool but also super dumb, which is why I am especially excited for this new movie! You see, Broly was designed by Akira Toriyama but was not written by Toriyama which basically means that the Broly we have known up until now is not canonical to the main story. When it comes to this new movie, Toriyama basically watched the old ones first and figured he could do a better job with Broly. This is not the same Broly from the old movies but is a new rebooted version of him. That should be pretty obvious from the trailer but I figured it was still worth explaining. If this Broly has a better backstory then I will be happy to have him as part of the canon story!
Broly is an extremely popular character so I'm sure the motivation behind bringing in Broly instead of a new villain is because it is guaranteed to make tons of money. Even so Toei is putting a lot of their eggs in one basket here and I am so fucking excited to see this movie! It releases in Japanese theaters this December and in North American theaters this upcoming January 2019. I am definitely seeing it in theaters!
Here is my favorite screenshot from the trailer:
Here are the main character designs (Notice Vegeta with the red God form):
So what do you think, anime fans? Will you go see this in theaters?
