Talking about the international release, the good news is that fans outside of the US won’t have to wait much longer. The film will be released internationally in August and September.
Crunchyroll tweeted to confirm the dates. The tweet has over 2,000 retweets and 7,000 favorites.
Some fans were skeptical about the 3D animation while the rest seemed to love it. However, some fans were upset that instead of picking up the story where it left off, fans are presented with a random movie.
Not all countries have received a release date yet. However, countries like Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Central America and Paraguay will get the initial release on August 18thth. The US, Canada, UK and some other countries can see the film on August 19thth.
Release dates run through September, with the final release coming on September 29th in Thailand, Hong Kong and Macauth.
If you live in any of these places it will be difficult to avoid the spoilers, although if you’re a fan it might be worth avoiding social media altogether!

trailer for Dragon Ball Super: Superhero
The release date news comes around the time of the English dubbed trailer. Toei Animation released over 7 30-second clips leading up to the film. The clips are packed with action and scenes that will delight fans.
For example, in one of the clips, Gohan and Piccolo successfully break their boundaries against Gemma 1 and Gemma 2. The clips also give a sneak peek at Vegeta and Goku, two of the most popular characters in the entire series. They both possibly train on the Beerus planet with Broly.
The short clips create a hype that would eventually fill theaters once the film is released. The Last Dragon Ball Movie, Dragon Ball Super: Broly was discontinued in 2015. It was made on a budget of $8.5 million and grossed over $30 million in North America alone. It did more than $120 worth of business worldwide.
The biggest earner among all films is that of Aniplex Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train. The fantasy anime film had a budget of $65 million. It was released in October 2020 in the midst of the pandemic and grossed a whopping $504 million worldwide.
Dragon Ball Super: Superhero will be available in the original language with subtitles and also in the locally dubbed language. If the success of previous films is any indication, the upcoming films are sure to break many records.
