‘Dragon Ball Super’ Movie Update: The Return of Broly!!!

Akira Toriyama explains about the return of Broly as the main antagonist in the upcoming ‘Dragon Ball Super’ movie!

It is now “confirmed” that the Ancient Saiyan villain in the upcoming ‘Dragon Ball Super’ movie will be the fan-favorite, Broly!!

He will be coming to the movie on December 14 later this year.

Toei Animation released it a few days ago and they also released comments from Akira Toriyama himself, who is the series creator, regarding Broly being in this movie. So this is very interesting and this is going to give us some insight as to Broly’s character in the movie. I guess they are holding on to these comments and they were waiting to release the official announcement, which is Broly. 

Now, let’s go ahead and read these comments by Toriyama because this is really fascinating. 

Akira Toriyama explains in-depth of Broly's new design and involvement in the movie!

So the comments start off saying,

“Everyone, are you familiar with Broly? He’s an incredibly strong Saiyan who only appeared in the old anime movies, and I apparently at least drew the designs for him, but I had practically no involvement with the anime at the time, so I had totally forgotten about the story content. So, about Broly. I hear these days, he’s still very popular not only in Japan, but also overseas. Based on that, my editor suggested we have Broly appear in this next movie. I went ahead and watched the movie from back then, and I felt this could be quite interesting once I rearrange some things. 
I got right to work trying my hand at a story that incorporates him into the Dragon Ball Super series. While keeping in mind Broly’s classic image so as not to disappoint his fans, I updated him and added a new side to his character, and I think this has resulted in a more fascinating Broly. Naturally you’ll get to see fierce combat, but also, the paths of destiny that lead to an encounter between Goku, Vegeta, and Broly. It also involves the Frieza Force and the history of the Saiyans, which end up having a major connection to everything. 
The story content turns out to be very large-scale and dramatic. Here comes that almighty Saiyan, Broly! I’m also including lots of other content all you fans will enjoy, so look forward to it, and be patient a while longer for it all to come together!!”

Broly's remake eyes and green aura!

So one of the things you guys have to realize is that Toriyama is very forgetful, traditionally. That is why there is a lot of plot holes in Dragon Ball and he forgets things (laugh). So, he is in his late 60’s by now and the Dragon Ball Z movies were made over 20 years ago. He pretty much looked back at the story of Broly, after seeing the success, and says, “Hey. This is a really good story.” So, it really comes down to what Akira wants to write, in regards to Dragon Ball Super and the movies. 

Now, he does get a lot of feedback from Toei Animation themselves saying, “Hey, this is really popular. You should do this.” and it has to be approved by Akira himself. Akira is ready to go full force with this movie. So far in his comments, it gives us an impression that Akira is going to remake a re-work Broly or have a Broly who is strong enough to go up against Goku and Vegeta, who have super, powerful forms right now. 

Broly will be the villain Goku goes up against in the movie!

So Akira does not want to ruin the classic image of Broly. The big bulky muscles. The evil, strong menacing titan, which is the traditional image of Broly. However, he added a new side to his character, which could mean anything. In my opinion, this sounds like Broly is going to be doing a lot more talking. He is not going to just say “Kakarot” all the time. There is going to be some additional storyline in here and Broly may have some additional goals. 

Now because the previous Broly movies were not Canon my question is, is this going to be in a sense that Broly will never die?

These types of movies never happen. Akira is remaking this story and remaking Broly as a brand-new character. Now, this leaves another question, are Goku and Vegeta going to know who he is in this movie?

Here is a present for you, Kakarot!

There is so much to discuss, and we finally have the reveal of the Ancient Saiyan in the upcoming Dragon Ball Super movie: Broly.

We will see Goku taking on Broly again, but in a remake version, which is pretty cool.

The hype has just begun guys!!!

That is all the updates so far for the Dragon Ball Super movie!
