According to Akira Toriyama, this movie takes place after the climax of the Tournament of Power.[4] It occurs in Age 780.[5][6]

It was suggested to Akira Toriyama by his editor to have Broly appear in the movie due to his overwhelming popularity. After watching the previous Broly movies, Toriyama decided that Broly could be quite interesting if he rearranged some things about him.[8]

Toriyama stated that, while keeping the popular aspects of the original version of Broly in mind, he updated him and added a new side to his character, believing that it would make him more fascinating. The story was also said to expand to a larger scale and would become very dramatic.[9]
