Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Teases A Red Ribbon Army Kidnapping

Dragon Ball Super is setting the stage for a major Red Ribbon Army kidnapping for the upcoming Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero feature film! The new movie will be the first new CG animated project for the Dragon Ball Super franchise and while that’s already enough to be excited on its own, many fans are even more excited for the promise of seeing Gohan and Piccolo taking the center stage for the fights in the new movie. This new movie will take place on Earth and feature the return of a familiar foe who has come back with a deadly new plan.

Throughout the promotional materials thus far it was confirmed that a new version of the Red Ribbon Army would be popping up in the next movie with a new set of deadly Androids. While this is already enticing on its own, it’s now clear that they have another plan in the works and actually need to kidnap Pan in order to do so. Wanting to lure Gohan to their base for a series of fights for a pretty mysterious reason, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is teasing that the Red Ribbon Army will be kidnapping Pan for whatever their nefarious plans are this time.

This intense hostage situation is further emphasized by not only the visuals of the newest trailer released, which sees Gohan needing to tear through the Red Ribbon Army to get to his daughter, but with the official plot synopsis for the new movie as well. It teases as such, “In the past, Goku destroyed the evil Red Ribbon Army organization. But their will lived on!! Now they’re revived, the RR create the new androids Gamma 1 and Gamma 2, and begin their revenge. Piccolo soon notices this disturbing activity, and sneaks into the Red Ribbon base, but there he discovers an unimaginable ‘ultimate evil weapon’…!! Pan is kidnapped in order to lure Gohan to base. There, he too joins the fight, and an unprecedented super battle begins!!!! Where shall this death match lead?! And what fate lies in store for the Earth?!”

It won’t be too much longer until we get to see how this shakes out as Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero releases in theaters in Japan next month, and will be making its way to North America this Summer.
