The theatrical release from Fathom Events will be announced at a future time. As part of the theatrical marketing for the movie, Funimation has become a sponsor for the Dragon Ball North America Tour 2018.
When the first Dragon Ball Super movie hits theaters later this year, it will bring with it a villain fans haven't seen in quite a while. It will be released in Japan this December, with a North American release likely to follow in early 2019. The tour will visit seven cities in the US and Canada, with San Diego being the first.
Funimation Films, the theatrical division of Funimation, acquires and distributes both anime and live action movies from prominent global filmmakers that appeal to the interests and passion of all types of fans throughout North America. The last Dragon Ball film, "Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection "F" (2015), was a box office hit - grossing $8M in North America to become the first independent film to make the Top 10 list of highest grossing anime films domestically. "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 Frieza and the Saiyans, which I hadn't properly depicted up till now; and leading to a mighty foe saved for the occasion, which I think has it shaping up to be a really enjoyable story". This latest agreement builds on the 22-year long partnership between Toei Animation and Funimation, which has contributed to the global success and pop culture status of the Dragon Ball franchise.
