Dragon Ball Super: Broly will be coming to the United States. Toei Animation recently announced the new Dragon Ball movie from the series original creator Akira Toriyama would be hitting Japan on December 14, 2018.

They made the announcement via Twitter.

Not only was the announcement made but Akira Toriyama also gave us some details as to what we can expect from the film. He described the story will involve “fierce combat, but also, the encounter between Goku, Vegeta, and Broly. It also involves the Frieza Force and the history of the Saiyans, which end up having a major connection to everything. The story turns out to be very large – scale and dramatic.”

We even got a look at what Broly’s design will be.

In a press release today, Funimation announced they had attained the theatrical rights for Dragon Ball Super: Broly revealing it “is anticipated to release in January 2019. The theatrical dates for the film’s run will be announced later.”

The film will take place following the events of the Dragon Ball Super anime series which premiered during the summer of 2015. The series has currently airing new English language episodes every week on Cartoon Network during Adult Swim at 10:30 PM. They are currently airing reruns during prime time on week days at 8 PM.

Along with the announcement of the theatrical release of Dragon Ball Super, CEO and President of Funimation Gen Fukunaga also teased some more “big surprises” for Dragon Ball fans:

“We are excited to be partnering with Toei Animation and Twentieth Century Fox on the theatrical release of Dragon Ball Super: Broly. The Dragon Ball North America Tour is really just the beginning. We have some big surprises in store for Dragon Ball fans of all ages. With the success of the last two Dragon Ball movies and the tremendous popularity of Dragon Ball Super, we know that this theatrical event will deliver all the excitement that Dragon Ball fans have come to expect.”
