    The official website for the 20th Dragon Ball film announced the tentative title Dragon Ball Super on Tuesday. The film is slated for December 14. The website also revealed a visual.

    Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama is writing the script and designing the characters. Tatsuya Nagamine (One Piece Film Z) is directing the film, Naohiro Shintani is serving as animation director, and Kazuo Ogura is serving as art director.

    Toriyama commented on the film:

    This Dragon Ball Super film is the next story after the currently airing television anime. The story takes place after the climax of the Tournament of Power, where the fate of the universe was at stake, and the short rest that follows. It will give a few previously unwritten details about the Saiyans and Frieza, as well as a long-awaited strong opponent to overcome, and I think it will be an enjoyable story!
    From 2013's Battle of Gods and the last film Resurrection 'F' to the current film, I've been carefully writing, and I've had the pleasure of drawing lots of designs and the like. I'm actually as busy as ever, but while I don't have to serialize anything I have time to think about the anime, which used to be out of my hands. (laughs) So please look forward to it!

    By the way, the television anime is over for now, but Toyotarō's popular manga (five volumes out now!) is continuing. I think it will have different developments from the television anime and film, so please look forward to it. I certainly will!

    The film will star Masako Nozawa, the voice of Goku.

    The teaser visual above reads, "'Super' movie version, begins."

    Dragon Ball Super premiered in Japan in July 2015 on Fuji TV and other channels. A new GeGeGe no Kitarō anime will take its timeslot starting on April 1. Toriyama confirmed in his comments that the show is ending "for now."

    The FunimationNow, Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and AnimeLab streaming platforms are all streaming the series with English subtitles, as episodes air in Japan. Funimation's English dub of the anime premiered on Adult Swim's Toonami block on January 7, 2017. Funimationposted the first 39 dubbed episodes to its streaming service in December, and will launch additional 13-episode batches two weeks after the final episode of the batch airs on Toonami.

    Pretty interesting information.

    Not going to lie, I'd prefer that it was a story based on the previous saiyan god - maybe it will go into that too - as opposed to another generic thing after the ToP. In saying that, it's interesting when this is based and I'm wondering if it returns will they adapt this like BoG? I look forward to further information in regards to this.

    I love the fact that its a sequel, which means they are definitely interested in continuing the story.
