Funimation to Bring Dragon Ball Super: Broly Anime Film to Theaters

Theatrical release is currently planned for January 2019

The full title was revealed for the Dragon Ball Super anime film earlier this week, with Dragon Ball Super: Broly set to open in Japan on December 14. North American fans won't have to wait long to see the epic big-screen Broly brawl in theaters, because Funimation announced plans to screen the movie throughout the United States and Canada in January 2019.


Funimation will be promoting the film during the seven-city Dragon Ball North America Tour 2018, which launches with a special July 19 panel at San Diego Comic-Con.



More from the press release: 


“Dragon Ball Super: Broly” follows the events of the hit anime series “Dragon Ball Super,” the first new Dragon Ball storyline from original creator Akira Toriyama in more than 18 years. Since premiering in summer 2015, “Dragon Ball Super” has propelled the popularity of the franchise globally – with both lifelong fans and a new generation of children and teens. The last Dragon Ball film, “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’” (2015), was a box office hit – grossing $8M in North America to become the first independent film to make the Top 10 list of highest grossing anime films domestically.
