Dragon Ball Super: Broly has grossed $124.5 million since its December 2018 release, signaling a strong return for the fan-favorite character. Becoming the third highest-grossing anime movie in the United States in January 2019 is no small feat, and it seems the head of the Dragon Ball team wants to capitalize on the film’s momentum.
An interview with Akiyo Iyoku, head of Shueisha’s Dragon Ball Room, was included in the movie’s Japanese DVD and Blu-Ray release. In the brief interview, Iyoku admits that the team is “steadily making preparations for the next Dragon Ball movie.” He doesn’t share any more details about the project but teases that “things will probably head in a completely different direction next time around.”
No release date or window for the next Dragon Ball movie was provided, but Iyoku says he’s excited for everyone to see “what’s coming up next.” He concludes by suggesting that “whatever comes next will be even more incredible.”
It’s worth noting that distributor 20th Century Fox Japan and producer Toei Animation haven’t officially announced or confirmed a Dragon Ball Broly: Super sequel. But based on Iyoku’s comments, a new Dragon Ball movie is currently in some form of developmental stage.
GameSpot editors Tamoor Hussain and Will Potter shared their thoughts about Dragon Ball Super: Broly in a spoiler-filled discussion, hoping “that they do more Dragon Ball movies like this” in the future.
