Bones and Toho are already working on new seasons of the anime nonstop, so I was really surprised when they told me there would be a new movie. I couldn't help but think back to my childhood when a new Dragon Ball movie was released every year. Those made me so excited that I remember sitting in the movie theater with my heart racing like crazy.
So I hope the new generation of kids around the world can enjoy this movie just as much as me back then," Horikoshi continued with a tease of where in the anime it will take place, "It'll take place after the War from Season 6, meaning that the collapsed society will be the stage this time.

Villains are running rampant and heroes are scrambling to protect civilization as All for One is planning his ultimate takeover.
