At the Makuhari Messe Convention Center just outside of Tokyo, Japan, the good people over at Shuiesha were running an event known as Saikyo V-Jump Festa on Saturday, July 21. The big news out of the event was a Dragon Ball Z 2013 Movie trailer. It isn’t out online at this time, but the folks from Jump themselves have released two images. Of course, when the trailer is released, we’ll be sure to have it for you here on Saiyan Island!
As for the images, the first one below image has Goku next to the tagline of “The strongest make their move”, while the second has what appears to be the Dragon Ball Z logo with two floating Dragon Balls.
Also released is the first Shonen Jump scan for the movie. It isn’t anything new, pretty much the exact same as when we posted about it back on July 11. The only differences are the images are flipped and if you click on the thumbnail below, you’ll be greeted with a very high resolution scan, 2775 x 2019!
The Dragon Ball Z 2013 movie will be the 18th movie in the Dragon Ball anime series. It will take place between Dragon Ball manga chapters 517 and 518, in the 10 year timeskip after Goku defeats Buu, before before the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament. Akira Toriyama along with Toei Animation, Fox International Productions Japan, Shueisha, Fuji TV, Bandai, and Namco Bandai Games are all involved. The latest Dragon Ball Z movie is set to release in Japanese theaters March 30, 2013. There is no word on a North American or European release at this time.
