Frieza Returns In New Dragon Ball Z Movie For 2015


Iconic villain will return in 2015 theatrical feature

He’s one of the most infamous villains in the Dragon Ball mythos: The first opponent powerful enough to coax a Super Saiyan transformation out of Goku and recurring bugbear to heroes and fellow villains alike after. Now, in 2015, he’s coming back to life.

The title, key art and premise for the previously announced 2015 Dragon Ball Z movie have been revealed: Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F (“F is for Fukkatsu,” aka “Resurrection”). The film will involve a pair of new villains, Sorbet and Tagoma, who will gather the Dragon Balls in order to resurrect the powerful alien supervillain – presumably to do battle with Goku and the series other heroes. Beerus, a new character introduced in the previous feature Battle of The Gods, will appear as well.

According to Anime News Network’s translation, the text/voices in the trailer say as follows:

Text: The entire universe eagerly awaits
Text: Original concept, scripts, character design
Text: Akira Toriyama
Shenlong: Now, say your wish. I will grant you any one wish only.
Text: There’s someone I want you to revive.
Shenlong: Your wish has been granted.
Text: The worst wish in history. Now, despair begins.

Created in 1989 in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump by DB/DBZ creator Akira Toriyama, Frieza has consistently remained one of the franchise’s most popular villains for over two decades. His re-emergence is part of the series’ continued resurgence in the popular culture, as the previous theatrical film marked the first new Dragon Ball feature in almost 17 years. Fukkatsu no F will debut in Japanese theaters during Golden Week, with International release dates yet to be announced.
