"Dragon Ball Super" the show is ending, but the movie will take its place.
Dragon Ball Super is coming to an end, at least for now. The sequel to Dragon Ball Z, which erased the horrendous memories of Dragon Ball GT, has breathed life back into the series after taking an 18-year hiatus. Fans love the latest show because it brought the core elements of the Z series back into the spotlight, which are amazing battles, new power levels and forms, and badass villains.
Although the television series may be drawing to a close, Akira Toriyama, the series creator, recently released a statement giving fans hope for the future. “The Dragon Ball Super movie this time around will be the next story that takes place after the anime that's currently on TV,” stated Toriyama on the website for the film.
The 130th episode of Dragon Ball Super just aired, revealing that Goku gets pushed out of the ring by Jiren, effectively losing the epic match. Frieza appears right on time though, saving Universe 7 from disqualification. In Toriyama's statement, which was translated by Kanzenshuu, the legendary artist also stated that Frieza will be a main character in the upcoming film. Toriyama states that he wanted to "give a little better understanding about Freeza and the Saiyans," in the new film. Exploration of the past relationship between Frieza and King Vegeta has been scarce, to say the least. He continued on to tease a "mighty foe" that will appear in the wake of the Tournament of Power.
