All I know is this, I cant wait for the cinematic return of The Legendary Super Saiyan Broly! He was and still is one of the best villians created for the franchise, but was short lived and under utilized. Funmation is also now a lead sponsor in the Dragon Ball North America Tour 2018, this tour will head to seven cities this year and will have many suprises for DB fans, so make sure you are there!


As for Funmation aquiring the rights, CEO Gen Fukunaga had this to say,  “We are excited to be partnering with Toei Animation and Twentieth Century Fox on the theatrical release of ‘Dragon Ball Super: Broly,’” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and President of Funimation. “The Dragon Ball North America Tour is really just the beginning.
