'Dragon Ball Super' Movie Update: Saiyan Race Will Be Featured; Dragon God Salama Inclusion Still Uncertain
Dragon Ball Super TV series aired the Universe Survival Saga final episode last month. Fans are now wondering whether or not Dragon God Salama will appear in the in the upcoming Dragon Ball Super movie. If so, will his identity be revealed too?
Many are expected a Salama appearance since he is the creator of the Super Dragon Balls and their divine dragon Super Shenron. In the season finale of Dragon Ball Super Season 5, Shenron was shown but he never mentions Salama. The Dragon God's identity has been kept a secret in Dragon Ball Super episodes. Aside from the ability to make the magical orbs that can grant any kind of wish, the scoop of power is still unknown.
The Dragon Ball Super movie was first announced late last year. Toei Animation and Dragon Ball franchise creator Akira Toriyama, however, are very secretive about the project. Aside from teasing "Saiyan" and the "historical number of character" during the movie announcement, they haven't revealed much about it.
Toei and Toriyama remain tight-lipped about the film other than stating that it will focus on the origin of the Saiyan race. Toriyama said the storyline will focus on the origin of the Saiyan and its transformation to super race. This could mean that the movie will take viewers back to Planet Sadala, which came back into prominence in the Japanese anime television series.
Moreover, reports indicate that the film will pick up from the recently concluded anime series. This means that even though it will revolve around the Saiyans, it may still touch some topics about the creator of the seven mythical orbs.
At the moment, there is still no confirmation from either Toei Animation or Toriyama whether Salama will be in the movie or not. For now, here are the other details that we know about the upcoming 20th film of the anime franchise.
