Akira Toriyama is writing new script & designing new characters for next DBZ spring’s film!!
The September issue of Shueisha’s V Jump magazine is announcing on Saturday that a new Dragon Ball Z movie will open during the Golden Week string of holidays next spring. Dragon Ball manga creator Akira Toriyama is personally credited with the original concept, screenplay and character designs of the new movie “that the entire universe eagerly awaits!!”
Toriyama confirmed that this new film, like last year’s Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, will tell a new story. He had intended to have this story during his manga’s original serialization. He promised more action scenes and teased that the story is still secret, but will be “utterly funny.”
To emphasize the effort he has put into this new film, Toriyama said that even his first manga editor praised him on the work he has done, even though this editor rarely ever does that. Toriyama is confident that fans will be able to thoroughly enjoy the movie. He is currently drawing up new character designs, and asked his fans to look forward to the movie.
