May 31st, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

All though it released in Japanese theaters over a year ago, the first new Dragon Ball feature film in 17 years is finally coming stateside thanks to FUNimation Entertainment and Screenvision.

The full press release is as follows:

Prepare for the Dragon Ball Z experience of a lifetime as Earth’s greatest heroes hit the big screen in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods! Stunning animation and epic new villains highlight this first new Dragon Ball feature film in over seventeen years!

Following the events from the Dragon Ball Z television series, after the defeat of Majin Buu, a new power awakens and threatens humanity. Beerus, an ancient and powerful God of Destruction, searches for Goku after hearing rumors of the Saiyan warrior who defeated Frieza. Realizing the threat Beerus poses to their home planet, the Z-fighters must find a way to stop him before it’s too late. Only Goku, humanity’s last hope, can ascend to the level of a legendary Super Saiyan God and stop Beerus from destroying Earth, and possibly the entire universe! Fans of the series will be delighted to know that Battle of Gods is an original work from Dragon Ball creator, himself, Akira Toriyama.

“We’re very excited to be bringing Battle of Gods to movie theaters across the country this summer,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and President of FUNimation Entertainment. “Dragon Ball Z has always been a huge part of everything we do at FUNimation and, speaking as a fan myself, I can’t wait to watch it on the big screen.”  FUNimation Entertainment will be partnering with Screenvision, a leader in cinema advertising and alternative content, to bring Dragon Ball Z : Battle of Gods to over 350 screens across the US & Canada.

There is still plenty more to announce in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more information regarding release dates and cast announcements.
