The Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero trailer 6

What do you do when your Saiyan father suddenly disappears? Piccolo, anime’s coolest and greenest uncle, “grudgingly” gives Videl a hand and puts Gohan on notice in the second of three weekly pre-premiere teasers for Dragon Ball Super: SUPER HERO film. Check out the trailer below:

The trailer shows Videl, who is probably away on business, calling Piccolo to help pick Pan up from kindergarten. Piccolo is not very excited to carry out this favor since it’s Gohan’s responsibility.

On the other hand, Gohan is busy preparing for an upcoming seminar. This trailer, alongside previously released ones, shows that Gohan has continued to fuel his interest in academics and is studying insects to add to this feat.

Uncle Piccolo, however, scolds Gohan in an attempt to remind him not to neglect his fatherly responsibilities. Fans speculate that this might be a Saiyan trait since Goku is still absent. 

In addition, the trailer suggests the possibility of more bonding time between Piccolo and Gohan as the duo takes on challenges. Fans commend the fluid and realistic animation of the trailer. Excitement brews as the film is likely to portray remarkable moments on and out of the battlefield. 

The Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero release date and synopsis

The new Dragon Ball film is slated to premiere in Japan on July 11, 2022, and international fans are expected to receive the English Dub and Sub later in the summer of 2022. The specific date for the English Dub is yet to be announced. Still, it will hit theaters on all continents, such as Europe, Australia or New Zealand, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, North America, and Latin America. 

The upcoming DBS: Super Hero movie will likely see the Piccolo and Gohan duo at the forefront of the story. The official plot is as follows: 

‘Son Goku once destroyed the Red Ribbon Army. Individuals, who carry on its spirit, have created the ultimate Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. These two Androids call themselves “Super Heroes.” They start attacking Piccolo and Gohan. What is the New Red Ribbon Army’s objective? In approaching danger, it is time to awaken, Super Hero!’
