Palace things go slowly, and the saying applies very well to the ‘Dragon Ball’ anime. The last film in the saga has been several years in development until it has finally seen the light of day in Japan, and so that we do not think even remotely that things have come to an end, it has already been confirmed that there is a new project of Akira Toriyama’s work in development.
And the anime series what?
Unfortunately no, this does not mean that the ‘Dragon Ball Super’ anime series, which ended its original broadcast in 2018, will return (for now). What we do know is that ‘Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero’ is not not at all the last film of the franchise and that the next one could already be in development.
And it is that in the latest installment of the magazine V Jumpthe current head of the Dragon Ball Unit department has confirmed that they are already working on a new project, although he has not given too many details.
“‘Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero’ is a movie that has been made not only for the Japanese audience but with the whole world in mind. ‘Dragon Ball’ is a series that Japan is very proud of, so we had this sense of responsibility while working on the film,” said Akio Iyoku. “What’s next? Well, since you’re asking, there’s already a new installment in the series in the works! ‘Super Hero’ took us five years, so it’s only natural that we’re already working on what’s next.
“Master Toriyama himself is always working on new concepts and ideas for ‘Dragon Ball,’ after all. We’re all thinking about what we want to show the world next,” the editor explained.
This does not mean that the series will not be resumed at some point, since there is enough material to adapt for the manga, but with this in mind we will most likely have another movie ahead of us. Of course, it is very possible that we will have to wait several more years until new details are given if we base ourselves on the production time of ‘Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero’.
