The highly anticipated film will be given an English dub release courtesy of Funimation.
Tickets went on sale yesterday for the April 11 world premiere, to be held at the Egyptian Theatre in L.A. The world premiere will debut in Japanese with English-language subtitles. Except for a few remaining disabled access seats, tickets have already sold out.
But if you weren’t one of the lucky few to snag tickets, don’t worry: Funimation announced Sunday that it has licensed the film and will be releasing it in North American theaters later this summer complete with English dubbing.
An exact date for the U.S. summer release is not yet known, but fans are excited anyway—though some are unhappy about having to wait a few more months.
Still riding that Resurrection F dub high. Can’t believe the turnaround for that. Can’t wait to see it in the theaters. Maybe even 3 times.

Buzz for the movie is high, particularly given the storyline’s focus on Frieza, a nigh-unkillable villain whose sparkly new look for the film is already turning heads. Frieza will be back to execute a revenge ploy against DBZ hero Goku in a follow-up to the 2013 film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods.
Battle of the Gods was the first film in the DBZ franchise to see a wide theatrical release in nearly two decades; the buildup for the sequel is a good sign that the franchise’s fanbase is in no danger of leveling off. You might even say it’s leveled up.
