Dragon Ball Super is on its way to conclude the anime which is on March 25. But to fulfill the gap of excitement until its next season, currently, there is the production of Dragon Ball 20th movie which will be releasing this year-end.

Creator of the franchise Akira Toriyama said a few words after declaring the release date of the movie which is translated by Ken Xyro over a social media:

“The Dragon Ball Super movie this time around will be the next story that takes place after the anime that’s currently on TV. The content will shed a little light on previously unexplored topics having to do with Frieza and the Saiyans, and I think it will be a very enjoyable story that serves up a long-awaited formidable opponent!”

With 2013’s Battle of Gods, the previous installment Resurrection ‘F’, and this time too, I’ve been the one writing the stories. I’ve also been drawing quite a few things for them, like design illustrations. I’m actually as busy as ever, and if I wasn’t serializing anything, I’d have time to think about the anime with which I used to not have enough time to be involved. (Laugh) So on that note, I very much hope you look forward to it!

By the way, I think the highly popular Dragon Ball Super manga, drawn by Toyotaro, is going to see some developments different the TV anime or movies, so please look forward to that. Be sure to check it out, too!”

By saying this, the creator of Dragon Ball Super just confirmed the series will be returned. But it is still unknown how it will connect Yomoshi storyline who is a first Super Saiyan God.

Besides this, most of the staffs recurring from One Piece Film Z according to Wiki.

However, Dragon Ball movie’s website does not unveil anything about film’s plot expect it would explore the origin Saiyans and also about fan-favorite villain Frieza.

As anime’s boss said, the anime movie will take place after Tournament of Power.
