According to an interview with the producer of Dragon Ball Super, Akio Iyokupublished in the most recent edition of the magazine v jumpa new project for the franchise is already in production. Different translations made by fans on social networks highlight that in the same interview they declare that the talks to carry out Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero began back in 2017, a year before the release of Dragon Ball Super: Super Broly.
Other points to highlight from the interview is that they tell us that the script took approximately two years to go from the first to the last version, in short, from the beginning the participation of the Red Patrol was already considered, but the role of Gohan and Piccolo was decided later.
Iyoku He also tells us that it was difficult for him to convince Akira Toriyama to have Gohan have a main role, since the first lines showed Piccolo as in the final fight.
Another interesting fact that the friend Iyoku releases is when they ask him about the positioning of the film in the timeline of the franchise, he answers:
Between this movie and Toyotaro-sensei’s manga, we currently have two lines of Dragon Ball Super going. For starters, this movie is written purely as a sequel to Broly. We wanted to collect and meet the expectations of everyone who has stayed with Dragon Ball so far, along the lines of “it would be great if this happened” or “I hope this kind of character appears”. And in the pages of this magazine, we have the continuation of the story of Goku and Vegeta. We will see new strong enemies appear, and new stories, and the events will continue to advance. Of course, Toriyama also diligently oversees the manga’s plot lines, so it’s like we have events running in parallel.
In terms of timeline placement, we try not to build things too strictly; we would like to leave margins in the story, to allow a greater degree of freedom. For example, Broly himself was an original anime character who was brought into the world of the main series by Toriyama’s own hand, and it is precisely those kinds of margins that are left in the world of fiction that allowed him to experiment in first place. In a nutshell: “Things are more interesting that way!”
We can only wait for next August 16 to be able to enjoy it in theaters in our countries, the film was confirmed to arrive on the aforementioned date with its Latin dubbing.
