Toei Animation, the Japanese animation house behind Dragon Ball Z has today launched the official website for the Dragon Ball Z 2013 Movie in English! The website sports the full teaser trailer for the movie, similar to the one we posted back in July.

The news is extremely exciting, at least Saiyan Island’s opinion! At this time only a Japanese release date of March 30, 2013 has been announced, but we feel that it certainly raises the chance for a worldwide release! An interesting tidbit of information – the Japanese version of the Dragon Ball Z 2013 Movie website, which opened in July, received hits from 178 countries! Japan was the top visiting country, with one quarter of the traffic coming from there. The rest, three quarters worth, came from overseas! The top country visiting the website after Japan was the USA followed by Brazil, Mexico, France, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Spain, and the United Kingdom!

Below is a message from the creator of Dragon Ball Z, Akira Toriyama in English. This message was originally released in Shonen Jump.

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.

    I’m not really excited for this because 
    1) I don’t think the writer of Dragonball and Dragonball Z created this movie.
    2) Toei Animation created this and by them creating this, they may make the movie like how they made Dragonball GT. It’s confusing and doesn’t make sense.
    3) For the English version, i’m sure they are gonna be using the same voices as the ones in Dragonball Kai and the voice actors aren’t as great as how the original Dragonball Z cast were.

  • dark_flame360

    He stated that he is working deeply with the movie. Did you not read the note?

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    1) He is writing the film. He has stated it will be considered canon.
    2) See above.
    3) The Kai voices are fine. Some worse, some better imo.

    well for #1 i can understand

    #2 toei animation was animating dbz too not just gt. they’re just helping with animating im sure.
    #3..*tear* i want my old gohan’s voice =(

  • shatti

    guys im just asking to know.. what is this movie going to be about?? because some people say that its going to be the best DBZ movie ever while im like “WELL WHAT THE HELL IS IT ABOUT THEN???!!!” please tell me

  • Jamal Douglas

    Nobody but the staff making this film knows what’s gonna be about.Come back in a few months,then the rest of the world can tell you what the hell it’s about.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_S3L7CRXQACZXZYYH7TL5EMIPAI Salvador

    Alright Akira way to go:D..btw any of you guys seen the movie AKIRA?

  • www.alainsmah

    looool  when i saw the teasr  i  was dammit its a live action  i hope they dont fail like those moron who insulted dbz with dragon ball evolution and then i saw goku in anime  i was wtf! this is gonna be epic xD

  • http://twitter.com/Haxx L.J.

    Man screw Gohan’s DBZ voice. We’re much better off now. He actually sounds age-appropriate in Kai, and well-acted.

  • supersaiyanbardock

    GT is not involved in this, this movie will be a canon not a filler. 

  • supersaiyanbardock

    It says that its going to take place before the time skip and when Goku defeated Kid Buu and before world tournament

  • supersaiyanbardock

    Me too, oh you might want to check out something on Gamefaqs, I browsing there for more info in DBZ Budokai HD Collection and oh boy I got chills when I saw  the other box cover I doubt its real in gamefaqs, in the box cover it shows Super Dragon Ball Z, Budokai 3 & Budokai Tenkaichi 3 on it makes me wish this was the Dragon Ball Z: HD Collection XD

  • supersaiyanbardock

    Me Too.

  • supersaiyanbardock

    Lol cause its teaser trailer, wait the 1st actual trailer =D

  • supersaiyanbardock

    I forgot to say that I have picture of Akira Toriyama in my room hang in my wall, I hope one day I travel to Japan to meet him XD

  • supersaiyanbardock

    Don’t worry, Adult Gohan voice will be same as his Z voice cause I if you play Raging Blast 2 English voices will have Kai voices only Kid and teen has his kai voice but his adult voice will be similar to Z XD

  • thecrows2332CHUNIN

    The first 25 seconds i was like Meh. But when i saw Goku and when he made his cheeky smile, i smiled and felt like this might be my best movie of 2013. Im calling it right now. 8/8/2012.

  • http://www.facebook.com/RonnieSpeaksIII Demi Speaks

    My man Goku smiled at the end,then said “…oh…….whatcha think this was? Live Action?” LOL! I love how this trailer got me like that. ^_^

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/CD4KESB6L3G5W27WMHVTU7K4BA Wildman or Shadow

    Yeah, some of DB GT don’t make sense and are BSing. I agree with you, Toei Animation made this and also made DBZ movies.

    For DB GT episodes / Movie, I think they are made by different people from a different company or a different brand.

    Akira, the DBZ manga creator, had nothing to do with the movies. Sometimes, I feel Toei Animation creators don’t respect Akira’s works or wants. I dunno maybe it’s me.

    It’s just like what Anime creators did to Naruto / Naruto Shippuden TV series – Fillers, weird/bad drawings and colors, etc. But I understand why fillers are needed to put in the Anime.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ENRWH6PGHSJ274LYJOEMUZXHDM LiL JJ

    The movie is not yet finished and as you can see Akira Toriyama will be deeply involved in this movie. This is just a “teaser” trailer basically showing off the animation.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ENRWH6PGHSJ274LYJOEMUZXHDM LiL JJ

    I was hoping to see a new trailer but “hey” seeing it again just makes me even more hype. The legendary Dbz is back! Run and tell yo mama haha.

    Oh hell yeah! Gonna be great! Well I hope it gets an international release! Hope it’s better than Fusion Reborn or Wrath of the dragon or even Broly the Legendary Super Saiyajin! I thought live action but as soon as I saw anime Kakarot I was like “Oh thank god..” If this is not an international release.. Hope it would have English subtitles

  • Alvaro Bernal Rey

    Peru presente


    i like the music choice it sounds awesome

  • http://twitter.com/Turbotrup Turbotrup

    Yes! If there is Toriyama and other “best” ppl who made entire Z series, it won’t be fail for sure!

  • AnkoFan2019

    Move over i’ve been waiting LONG TIME for the ORIGINAL DBZ and not just that crappy NickToons one…. I NEED THIS D: LOL

    Who else smiled when Goku smiled lol

     dumb ass without Dragon Ball, your beloved Naruto would have never existed!

  • sablehood

    what does the teaser trailer said exactly?

  • Toed

    I don’t really care that you don’t like DBZ. To each his own. But I’d like to take this lovely opportunity to remind you that Naruto and Sasuke have kissed. Naruto has also been chasing after Sasuke (who wants nothing to do with him) for the past 450 chapters or so. That seems more gay than martial arts. Not that there’s anything wrong with being gay, mind you. Not my sexual preference but, again, to each his own.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/YMSIYP4RLFXMHOHT2FNBZ7O3WY Anthony

    OMG nobody likes dragonball….dragonball z has a bigger fan base then bragonball so why would they make a dragonball movie??????????????? so stupid

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/YMSIYP4RLFXMHOHT2FNBZ7O3WY Anthony

     I love Dragon Ball z I still watch all the episode still today

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OWG7YS476OGKNX6HLCQ6FBZ5UM Matthew

    How do you know if the movie hasnt even come out yet? Plus the trailer barely reveals anything and AKira Toriyama said he’s deeply involved with the movie and he never disappoints his fans so think twice before you TALK SHIT next time you fucking cunt.

  • jttrinity

    in manga there’s no dragon ball z, only dragon ball. manga chapter 517 is technically dragon ball z

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004171327524 Dennis Huseinovic

    i hope this is not live action  i hope it is animated  because i love the anime and i hate the movie dbe

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004171327524 Dennis Huseinovic

    i hope this i animated

  • Chris Bailey

    Are you Retarted??? The Trailer Is Right IN FRONT OF YOU! And It kinda looked like Goku was his normal Age. You don’t know shit.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000004756844 Jento Pieters

    Probaply it is going to follow up on “A Hero’s Legacy”. And we are going to see it through Goku’s eyes. You know Goku Jr. & Vegeta Jr.? Well I think they will be adults & Goku will train them personally, for the danger that is coming. If the story was like that, omg im definitly going to watch it, because I want to know what happened to Goku when he went with Shenron.

  • Marcin Mrożek

    w tym anime nie istnieje sg jr i vegeta jr  dragon ball gt nie będzie brane pod uwagę !!

  • Marcin Mrożek

    chyba cię pojebało facet

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LHYSV57RNGLIBRNFMAJJPN47ZI Michael Buono

    Guys, this takes place after they defeat Buu, but before Goku flies off with Uub…this doesn’t focus on Goku Jr or even pan for that matter. 

  • lazaros1312

    if that movie come to greece that be greatest

  • http://twitter.com/AustinOtaku1 Dr.Otaku

    i bet thats the first time Mr.Toriyama Drew Toribot in years :D

  • http://www.facebook.com/Serpivate Ryan Jonathan Harris

    It’s not going to man, it’s after the 13th movie I think.

    This is following Z, not GT.

  • John White

    Hopefully this will be good,hopefully

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/WEBLHYUPZ4VK6RDEOX5IKUK6NA Messedup

    this is going to be amazing!!! i hope it stays true to the series action/story wise..no DBGT crap where the fighting is boring to watch and the animation looks weird.
    For once I have high hopes for something new in DBZ! I can sense it, this is gonna be good!!! I wonder who the villain will be! hopefully he’s badass!! freeze/cell/buu worthy! I wonder if goku will reach a new transformation or something too! something like the false super saiyan form lord slugs movie! I hope they keep coming out with new movies that they put a lot of effort into too! This is going to be greaaaat!!!

  • Anonymous

    THANK YOU AKIra!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i have been waiting forever for a new dragon ballz to come out the last one was shitty but i extreamly hi high hopes about this one and im sure tht this time they will use animation because no real human being could look like goku

    cannot wait but starting at the end of the Buu saga is a lil wank. should just start from the end of GT. Need to see SSJ4 BIG TIME

  • johnfirestone7

    ive been waiting forever

  • robert hill

    Well After the shitty Live Action Movie and this actually being animated this will do The “DBZ Movie Series” Much Justice. Only problem is what saga. alot of the older DBZ movies kind of taken placen “mid sagas” and made sence in a way, but DBZ is well over and GT kind of killed it in more ways then one but……. With Kai the Rebirth of DBZ feels good, but where will this movie be… is it a DBZ Kai movie or a ” DBZ Movie 14″ ….. I’m so lost but happy o-o 

  • robert hill

    Sweet so it is movie 14…… i hope i was really lost about that mainly because of the GT crap xD 

  • robert hill

    I actually am glad to hear about this, best new ever 

  • Ainoras Kondratjevas

    i wish they could make vegeta ssj3 and a new ssj4,because the ssj4 from gt was not made by Akira Toriyama

    I think I just shit myself……so fucking awesome…

  • null_steven

    @robert hill it has been comfirmed that this is going to be a totally new movie not a DBZ Kai remaster. it takes place between the 10 year gap after goku defeated Majin Buu and the GT series. its going to fill in the holes as to what happened to the Z fighters in that time period. It will be released in japan march 30 2013. their has been no comfirmed date for the US yet BUT it will be released in the US as the united states has been chosen as a partner country in production of the movie so it will hit the US sometime… we just don’t know when. 

  • MegaZoneEX

    i disagree and glad this movie isnt a sequel [technically speaking its a sequel to the manga] to GT.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/Q5BPOO26JJZTY6PLOLLW6OPKXI Nick

    your comment gave me cancer… but im guessing your a 10 year old little child. so its understandable why youd ever consider gt to be dragonball lore.

  • http://www.facebook.com/daniel.crawford.16 Daniel Crawford

    I hope they dub this in english, anyone know?

  • Van Basten

    Truly nothing more legendary in the world of anime than DBZ. You don’t even have to like the series to know that. 

  • Aron Ifill

    You have it wrong. It’s the 10 year gap between the defeat of Buu and Goku going off with Uub at the end of the series.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/UMCY3YWRU4GQDWDWBIUNHFWHGE Richard Via

    I can’t guarantee it, but I would like to say the chances of a dub are far better than any of those “specials” everyone keeps using to compare to this movie. If you don’t already know, lots of people say their won’t be a dub because none of the recent specials ever got an English dub, ‘Goku and Friends Return”, “Episode of Bardock”, the new Dragonball Raging blast mini-movie. In any case, none of those were truly made by AT, so they weren’t required to have a dub. But this movie is completely legitimate, made by AT, considered canon, “takes place between 516 and 517 of the manga”, actual Movie #, and every other movie ever made was translated into multiple languages. The English voice actors are still working and haven’t retired or died, so it’s 85-99% chance their going to do a dub in the coming year. I’d expect it around early 2014 to fall if necessary. 

  • Jacob Puhalsky

    They better have it in theaters in America, they might because Fox International is working with them

  • Jacob Puhalsky

    Im glad it isnt a sequel, the story kinda got ruined after GT started

  • Jacob Puhalsky

    My brother thinks its going to be terrible because the main villian is a “Purple Egyptian Rabbit Thing”

  • Tymeek Lewis-Cleveland

    L.J. don’t ever disrespect DBZ Gohan’s voice because his voice was awesome in DBZ especially when he turned SSJ2, and dbz kai is just a remake of DBZ’s saiyan to cell saga with an average voice actor for gohan.

  • Tymeek Lewis-Cleveland

    Akira Toriyama did create this movie if I’m not mistaken.

  • Tymeek Lewis-Cleveland

    Not true, And the transformation in the movie is a Super Saiyan God.
