Announced yesterday by Funimation, the company will be releasing the latest animated Dragonball Z film into the states. Dragonball Z: Battle of the Gods will hit North America in over 350 theaters, playing August 5-7th & 9th.
The movie takes place after the end of the Buu Saga of the show. In it, Goku and the Z Fighters gather together to face Beerus, who wishes to defeat Goku. Goku must ascend higher than ever before in order to save the universe itself. The movie came from Dragonball creator Akira Toriyama himself last year and, according to the creator, discounts the existence of Dragonball GT. Toriyama was not involved in the making of Dragonball GT. The movie also features the much talked about Super Saiyan God, which Goku must obtain in order to battle Beerus. Funimation brings many of the Dragonball Z Kai cast together again for the English dub.
