2015 has been a big year for the Dragon Ball franchise, what with excitement reignited over the DBZ follow-up series, Dragon Ball Super and a new film sequel, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’. While the film has been out in Japan since April, it won’t hit American theaters until August. However, to help pass the time for those who prefer English dubs over Japanese dubs, Funimation has released a new trailer for the film.
Resurrection ‘F’ focuses on Frieza’s return following the events of the previous Dragon Ball Z film, Battle of Gods. Frieza, as many may remember as one of the first real threats in the Dragon Ball Z series, is brought back to life after a few of his remaining henchmen wish him back from Shenron and quickly begins training to match Goku’s strength. While many anime series have come and gone that have advanced and surpassed the level DBZ bring the shounen genre to, this trailer for Resurrection ‘F’ shows that series creator Akira Toriyama and his team of animators at Toei Animation have a few tricks up their sleeves – needless to say, Dragon Ball Z has never looked better than in Resurrection ‘F’.
Funimation will be holding a limited theatrical run for Resurrection ‘F’ this August 4th – 12th, so check out the list of participating theaters and get your tickets now!
