Dragon Ball Z films

The first peek at the Dragon Ball Heroes anime has fans’ collective attention at the moment, as it provides a fresh action-packed adventure following the conclusion of Dragon Ball Super. While the future of the franchise may be in the current spotlight, the series’ nostalgic past also looks to be coming back in a big way with the announcement of three Dragon Ball Z films getting a theatrical release.

Having been a massive hit in the 90s, Dragon Ball Z released numerous films extending the fighting-filled exploits of Goku and the Z-Fighters, all introducing terrifying new enemies for our heroes to overcome. Presented by Fathom Events and Toei Animation, three of these cinematic adventures are now set to screen in select U.S. theaters for the first time, each of them remastered and dubbed in English.

Premiering September 15th and 17th, the first of these re-releases will be Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan, which tells the beastly introduction of Broly, and Goku’s eventual efforts to put down the gargantuan foe. Later in the fall, a double feature will hit theaters on November 3rd and 5th, showing Dragon Ball Z: Bardock — The Father of Goku and Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn. The former tells the story of Goku’s ill-fated father on Planet Vegeta, while the later focuses on the emergence of a powerful new enemy as Goku and Vegeta attempt to master the Fusion Technique.

Tickets to each of these showings will go on sale beginning on June 27th via the Fathom Events website. In addition to catching these Dragon Ball Z films on the big screen, buyers will also receive a Broly trading card from the Dragon Ball Super card game as a bonus.
