"Ka…me…ha…me…ha! The 33rd issue of Shonen Jump magazine has revealed that a brand new Dragon Ball Z movie is in the works! It’s unclear whether the movie is live action or animated, but by looking at the Shonen Jump cover, it seems like the movie based on mangaka Akira Toriyama’s series is hinging toward the animated side. No other details have been released at this time.

The last feature animated Dragon Ball Z movie, Wrath of the Dragon, was released back on July 15, 1995 in Japan. There was a Dragon Ball movie to follow, The Path to Ultimate Power, but that too was released over 16 years ago on March 4, 1996. The live action movie by Fox, Dragon Ball Evolution, was released March 10, 2009 in Japan.

We hope to have more details here on Saiyan Island as soon as they becomes available."

"Yesterday, you may have heard about a new Dragon Ball Z Movie announced by Shonen Jump. Well, today, there is more information related to the exciting news! Starting with the creator of Dragon Ball Z, Akira Toriyama, being will involved in this project!"

"Toriyama-sensei himself mentions that this is the first time he has been so deeply involved in the production of a Dragon Ball Z anime piece, in this case as early as the screenwriting stages. He continues on to say that it’s been a while since he has worked on Dragon Ball Z, so he had forgotten a bit, but as the creator of the series, he was able to get back into the DBZ groove! Additionally, Toriyama-sensei says while the original Dragon Ball Z atmosphere will be left intact, the movie team has added a bit of modern flavor at the same time. In his opinion the new movie will be an enjoyable piece, just like old times!"

"Fox International Productions Japan, Shueisha, Fuji TV, Toei Animation, Bandai, and Namco Bandai Games will all be a part of the movie’s production committee. There is a website for the movie,, but at this time the page is pretty much blank."

"It’s unclear where in the Dragon Ball Z story the movie will fit in exactly, but the announcement image below features Goku, Gohan, Piccolo, Krillin, Vegeta, Trunks, and Goten as they were in the Majin Buu saga. The movie is scheduled for a March 30, 2013 release."
