Anime: Frieza Returns in Upcoming “Dragonball Z” Movie

Dragonball Z is considered a classic anime, serving as the inspiration for many shonen series that followed. To this day, the announcement of a new movie is met with excitement from countless fans, as is the case today.

Following the recent “Battle of Gods” movie, where Goku reached a new level of Super Saiyan  to battle the God of Destruction, Beerus, a follow-up has been announced. This time, the villain is one of Dragonball Z’s earliest and most recognizable: Frieza.

The upcoming movie is titled “Fukkatsu no F,” which can be loosely translated as “The Resurrected F,” with F standing for Frieza. In it, two of Frieza’s former minions, Sorbet and Tagoma (both featuring food-based names, with Tagoma being a play on “Tamago,” or egg) using the Dragonballs to revive Frieza.dbztamago

Akira Toriyama, the creator of the Dragonball manga, is involved with the concept, screenplay, and character designs, with Dragonball Z animation director Tadayoshi Yamamuro directing.

In the poster, we can see a handful of DBZ characters, including Goku, Vegeta, and what appears to be Gohan in a track suit. Also featured are Beerus and Whis, who debuted in the “Battle of Gods” movie. Most prominently, however, is Frieza himself, looking menacing and surrounded by a glowing aura like that of the Super Saiyan God mode.

It’s safe to assume that with the resurrection of Frieza comes a major power boost. After all, last time he came back in a movie, things ended pretty quickly.

The movie will open next Spring in Japan during Golden Week. A US release has not yet been announced.
