Freeza Is Going To Feature In Upcoming ‘Dragon Ball’ Movie

In case, you haven’t heard it yet; Dragon Ball Super has just got an indefinite extension to it. While the TV series for the franchise might wrap up this month, Toei Animation plans great things ahead. The other day, Toei revealed to fans the fact that the upcoming Dragon Ball film will keep the franchise going beyond the TV show. Now, further information has been revealed about the film, and fans are delighted about the villain. Apparently, Freeza is coming back in Dragon Ball Super.

The official Toei Animation website for this 20th film from Dragon Ball franchise displayed an Akira Toriyama statement. The artist, who is known as the creator of the franchise, shared with fans that the film’s rogue gallery will include Freeza and other villains. You can read the translated statement issued by the anime creator, courtesy Kazenshuubelow:

“It will be an episode after catching our breath from the climax of the Tournament of Power with the universe’s existence on the line; with content that will give a little better understanding about Freeza and the Saiyans, which I hadn’t properly depicted up till now,”Toriyama stated.

The disclosure about Freeza is intriguing for the fans. As of now, the tyrant remains a key element of the ongoing Dragon Ball Super TV series. We have seen Goku hire the villain in The Tournament of Power after Mr. Buu fell into an impregnable sleep. As of now, Freeza is continuing in the tournament despite having been MIA after a face-off with Jiren. In case Freeza features in the upcoming Dragon Ball Super film, then it seems as if the character will survive the tournament with all limbs intact. Not just that, Freeza might even emerge fighting fit.

The villain told Goku that in return for his help, he would have to be revived permanently. In case Freeza happens to be the one who beats Jiren in the Tournament of Power decisively, the villain would get his wish fulfilled. Therefore, fans will have to wait and watch if Freeza brings something good or bad for them in future.

You can watch Dragon Ball Super on Crunchyroll Saturday evenings at 7:15 p.m. CST. Its English Dub is aired by Adult Swim during its Toonami block Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m, and you can also stream it now on FunimationNOW and Amazon Video.
