Stay on target Watch: This ‘Dragon Ball’ Fan Quit His Job to Set a World RecordNew Adidas ‘Dragon Ball Z’ Shoes Are On the Way We finally know the name of the new Dragon Ball movie, and presumably the focus of its plot. The 20th Dragon Ball movie will be called simply: Dragon Ball Super: Broly. When the anime went on hiatus abruptly earlier this year, there were fears that Dragon Ball Super was over. However, we now know that the story will continue if only for this movie.Broly is one of Goku’s fiercest nemeses, but up until this point he hasn’t been considered part of the main Dragon Ball timeline. That’s right, the last 19 Dragon Ball movies weren’t actually canon, well, except when they are. It’s complicated. However, Dragon Ball Super: Broly will be the first movie that is officially part of the Dragon Ball main universe canon.What this all means is that Broly exists in the main timeline, but the Z Fighters haven’t met him before. We don’t know much about Broly other than what we see from his appearance on the new movie poster. He looks a lot less spacy than he did in his premiere movie, Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan. He also isn’t in his Super Saiyan form, so who knows what kooky transformations he may get up to.Toriyama has said that he plans to keep the popular aspects of Broly’s previous appearances while updating him and adding a new side to his character. He’s also stated that the story will be very dramatic and move to a larger scale. Seeing as several universes were at stake in the last arc of Dragon Ball Super, I don’t know how much more massive scale the series can get.Broly’s an interesting enough villain. However, I’m not too excited to see him again. He got center stage in three movies already, and the last one, Bio-Broly, was not the best Dragon Ball work I’ve ever seen. Hopefully, we’ll get to see some hints of where the franchise is going in the future, especially since fans are still skeptical about its health after so many rumors that the anime was a victim of a premature demise.We’ll find out when Dragon Ball Super: Broly releases in US theaters on September 15, 2018.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
